Houston area recruiting notes
I've got a few notes this morning from around greater Houston as the Aggies and Mike Elko position themselves for some of the city's top targets. - The Aggies are going to get multiple spring time visits from CyFair DL Landon Rink. I've spoken about the job Elko, Sean Spencer, and Tony Jerod-Eddie have done here, and it sounds like A&M's primary competitor at this juncture remains Oklahoma. Rink played youth football with RB commit Deondrae Riden and even tweeted last night that the two may have to link up again as teammates in college. Really like where things are at for the Aggies with one of the top defenders in Houston. - One name I probably haven't mentioned enough in terms of where he sits on Mike Elko's wishlist is Spring Dekaney TE/HBack Nicholas Townsend. If you haven't watched his junior tape yet, I highly suggest putting it on your to-do list if you're a fan of this recruiting stuff. He's a special athlete for that type of position, and it's a spot that Collin Klein has a history of success with in his offensive system. A source in the area thought the Aggies were in as good a spot as any right now, but there was still some recruiting to be done. Ole Miss and Texas are also squarely in contention. Townsend is set to make a substantial move up our rankings in the next round of updates. - How the secondary class unfolds will be an interesting watch. More specifically, I'll be watching to see which prospects get big pushes by the coaching staff throughout the spring and summer. I'm also keeping an eye on North Shore standout and Ohio State commit Devin Sanchez. A couple of contacts have told me that he's been in communication with members of the Aggie staff, and I still believe we'll see him make the drive up to campus at some point this spring. Other Houston area secondary candidates for this class include Ft Bend Marshall CB Caleb Chester, Klein Oak CB Courtland Guillory, Ft Bend Hightower S/NB Kade Phillips, and CB Cobey Sellers from Shadow Creek. - Texas A&M appears to be moving in the right direction with Hitchcock WR/ATH Kelshaun Johnson. This is a recruitment and relationship that I think had gone stagnant toward the end of last fall but has been reinvigorated with the arrival of Mike Elko and Holmon Wiggins. The two parties have been in communication much more often recently, and Johnson was seen rocking some Aggie gloves over last weekend at a 7 on 7 event in The Woodlands. Texas is also very much a contender here. - Another wide receiver I'll be interested to follow through the spring and summer is Shadow Creek's Jacorey Watson. Texas A&M offered in late January, and he was on campus the following weekend for Junior Day. There's no question about Watson's ability with the ball in his hands, but he just hasn't played much receiver up to this point due to team needs. He spoke extremely highly of A&M and Mike Elko following that visit, and a south Houston source told me last weekend that the Aggies would stand a great shot at landing him with a strong push this offseason.

A few new Jr Day Confirmations
Yesterday Denton Ryan 2025 OL Ty Haywood told us he plans to attend Texas A&M's Junior Day on January 27. He will be joined by teammate and fellow standout 2025 OL Marcus Garcia. South Oak Cliff 2025 linebacker Jayden Shelton also tells me he will be in College Station on January 27 and I have also confirmed North Crowley 2025 linebacker Jonathan Cunningham and Mansfield Timberview 2025 S Nate Tilmon for the 27th. Tilmon is a guy I hear is picking up steam in DFW. Haven't talked about him a lot but he already holds offers from TCU, Texas Tech, Baylor, Houston, UNLV, and Utah and checks in at 6-0, 180. He was at TCU's Jr Day over the weekend, may visit Mizzou this weekend, and he also has plans to attend Baylor's Jan 28.

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)

Considered one of the best prospects in the nation and a likely difference-maker at the collegiate level. Displays all of the physical skills to be a future All-American with potential to be an early-round NFL draft pick.

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.”
