DFW Recruiting Notes
Texas A&M has been very active in DFW and March 30 looks like a busy weekend with Mesquite Horn standout OL Lamont Rogers, Lewisville OL Michael Fasusi, and Denton Guyer DL Xavier Ukponu all planning to be College Station that day.In the 2026 class Prosper (TX) OL Zaden Krempin tells me he will return to College Station for an April 6 visit. I spoke to a few sources on Fasusi and the Aggies continue to do great work there. Elko and Cushing continue to make a strong impression and as noted by his visit he continues to take a long look at the Aggies. When it comes to leaders I do not know if he is ready to declare anything just yet, but I expect Oklahoma and Texas are going to be prime competitors. He likes the idea of playing in the SEC, his relationship with the coaches is a big thing for him, and I am told the ability to compete for a championship is also something high on his priority list. Missouri really impressed him on his visit before the dead period and Oregon is another school he has shown a lot of interest. Fasusi went home sick yesterday, so I missed him when I dropped by the school, but I was able to see quite a few top prospects. If you are looking for potential Texas A&M targets, CB Dylan Davis (6-0, 170) and DL Xavier Fleming (6-1, 270) are a couple of 2026s who could end up on Texas A&M's radar. Davis got a lot of great reps and has the tools that could see him grow and develop into a top tier prospect over time. Fleming was named district Defensive Newcomer of the Year last year. He tallied 51 tackles as an interior DL and he also plays for the Lewisville basketball team.It is the class of 2027 though which has people around the program buzzing. There is a lot of young talent and several are already picking up scholarship offers. ATH Derrick Martin (5-9, 165) plays RB, WR, CB, and as a return man. He already holds offers from Ole Miss, Colorado State, and UNT. QB Tre Williams (6-0, 185) holds offers from Arizona St, Coloado St, Texas St, and UNLV. ATH Aiden Evans (5-11, 165) is making a name for himself as an electric athlete who makes plays at WR and DB. He currently holds offers from Colorado St and UNTWR Landon Bogany (6-2, 193) is a big physical receiver and he recently received his first offer from UNT. WR Deontae Weathers (6-0, 160) and ATH Devin Robinson (5-10, 160) are a couple more in the 2027 class to watch.Lancaster (TX) wide receiver Emmanuel Choice is one guy we have not talked much about, but he is a guy to put on your radar. He checks in at 6-5, 200 and he is one long, fluid athlete at WR. His quick feet and ability to get in and out of his breaks is unique for a guy that size. He quickly tracks the ball and adjusts his body and his long arms give him a big catch radius. The Aggies offered in December and area recruiter Tony Jerod-Eddie and wide receivers coach Holmon Wiggins have been leading the Aggies efforts. Oklahoma was one of the first on him and right now I'd give the Sooners the edge. TCU is also coming on strong, and he also visited Texas before the dead period.He has been in regular contact with the Aggies since receiving the offer and it looks like the prospects are promising of him making his first Aggieland visit this spring.

Elko & Co. prioritizing 'fast and physical' running backs, linebackers
There's a long and storied lineage of successful running backs and linebackers throughout program history at Texas A&M. As Mike Elko and his staff envision the future of Aggie football, they'll look to set the tone on and off the field by building a group filled with dynamic athletes.

TexAgs National Average Rating

The TexAgs National Average Rating is a proprietary formula that calculates an industry-wide aggregate rating for each recruiting prospect. The formula includes publicly listed grades, scores, ratings and rankings by national recruiting services, along with a TexAgs rating. Combining the data provides a rating for each prospect, which is then normalized to fit the TexAgs Rating 100-point scale.

The intent of this rating is to provide TexAgs readers with a comprehensive snapshot of how individual prospects rank nationally.

TexAgs Rating

The TexAgs Recruiting team of Billy Liucci, David Sandhop, Jason Howell, Ryan Brauninger and a host of recruiting interns attends more than 75 games each fall and observes and evaluates every major Texas A&M target, as well as most of the top 150 prospects in the State of Texas. From this evaluation the team draws a rating for each prospect on a scale between 70 and 100.

99-100: Elite national prospect (Five-star)

90-98: Elite state prospect (Four-star)

Considered one of the best 30-40 prospects in the state and a top 250 national prospect. Displays the physical skills to be a major early contributor at the collegiate level with high professional potential.

80-89: Quality prospect (Three-star)

Considered one of the best 100 prospects in the state and a top 500 national prospect. Displays the physical skills to develop into a contributor over the course of his college career. Has the ability to become a professional prospect over time with development.

70-79: Solid prospect (Two-star)

Considered one of the top 250 prospects in the state. Has the physical skills to be a potential contributor at a D-1 program over the course of his collegiate career with significant development. Professional potential is low.

Staff Predictions

The predictions represent which school each staff member believes will ultimately sign the recruit, and the confidence meter represents his level of certainty in that outcome.

Example #1

If the predicted school is Texas A&M and confidence is set to “High”, then the staff member is saying “I believe that this recruit will ultimately sign with Texas A&M and I feel very certain about that.”

Example #2

If the predicted school is “Alabama” and confidence is set to “Low,” then the staff member is saying “I believe that this recruit will ultimately sign with Alabama, but I’m not very certain about that.”
