A few recruiting notes + weekend visitors
- Transfer WR JaQuae Jackson appears to be set to announce his next destination tomorrow after he graduates from California University of Pennsylvania. He wrapped his official visit to Texas A&M on Wednesday. He made the trip with two of his long time friends but also made sure that his family/inner circle was kept in the loop and in constant communication with the Aggie coaching staff. I don't think his hand has been tipped ahead of time, but a source I spoke with this morning felt like A&M had done enough earlier this week to win out. We'll certainly be keeping an eye on it this weekend. - Blountstown (FL) S Jordan Pride tweeted last night that he would be in town this weekend for an unofficial visit. By all accounts, this one is shaping up to be a Florida vs Texas A&M battle. After Pride decommitted from Florida State in April, everybody in the recruiting world assumed he was lock to Billy Napier and the Gators. While that may end up being true, it'd be pretty foolish to count the Aggies completely out of this one. It's basically a coin flip based on what I'm hearing today. - Texas A&M is also set to host one of the top offensive prospects in the Midwest this weekend as Elmhurst (IL) TE Eric Karner will make his way to College Station. Obviously, this isn't necessarily a position of need given the current room so it should speak to what James Coley and the offensive staff think about this kid as a prospect. - The other visitor headed to town today is Fresno State QB transfer Jaylen Henderson. We'll try to run down what we can about his trip early next week. - A lot of visits currently being talked through and planned. June looks to be one of the busier months in this recruiting cycle. The Aggies are positioning themselves to host a ton of key targets early next month. - Lastly, we are monitoring a potential visit from a very highly regarded out-of-state offensive prospect later this month. We've been told the trip is in the works but will withhold the name until everything is finalized.

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.”
