On Waddle, O'Neal, Ossai and more (Tuesday lunch)
I've talked to several folks now about the visits last weekend of Bellaire Episcopal WR Jaylen Waddle and CySprings S Leon O'Neal, and here's what I've got...For Waddle, the trip was a slam dunk, grand slam, touchdown. In other words, it couldn't have gone any better. A couple of times throughout the visit, he made it apparent to those in his inner circle and those around him that he felt like A&M was the place for him. He was hosted by Christian Kirk, a savvy move that paid off. Waddle got to pick Kirk's brain and see how he lived as a student-athlete at A&M. A source close to Waddle said he didn't know if he had ever heard him so excited, and that same source also pointed out that Waddle has now taken two official visits to Jimbo Fisher...that should say quite a bit about his affinity for the new head man in College Station. I'll also add that there's a lot of buzz amongst the group of commits about Waddle joining the fold. I was also told that Texas tried to push Waddle for a last official to which Jaylen amicably declined. Added: Waddle has pushed his signing day back to February. I'm told it's just to make sure he's given himself enough time to examine everything. Can't fault a kid or his leadership group for that.That same momentum can be attributed to the Aggies when it comes to getting Leon O'Neal back into the fold. While Leon has been a little more low key, I've been told a decision could be made sooner than previously anticipated. This coming weekend would be his last chance to official elsewhere before the oncoming Dead Period. Remember, Leon's plans are currently to sign in February. While it's not a done deal as of around noon today, there's talk that Leon could be back in Aggieland this weekend. Georgia, Clemson, and Oklahoma are still on the radar, but this feels like the M&W are pulling away and comfortably in the driver's seat to get Leon back in the fold. Then, there's this from Fast Houston...https://twitter.com/fast7v7/status/940655388546027520Terry Price and Jimbo Fisher are expected to meet with Oak Ridge DE Joseph Ossai tomorrow. With the buzz about Terry Price's retention, do not be surprised if Ossai is made privy to the future of his guy TP at that meeting. If/when that info is relayed, I was told the Ossai decision would happen "very soon". Therefore, barring a bizarre and unforeseen change of events, I wouldn't rule out the second commitment of the Jimbo Fisher era happening before you go to bed tomorrow night. I spoke briefly yesterday about the impact of the Darrell Dickey hire in terms of Grant Gunnell. Dickey has a very strong relationship with St Pius Head Coach Stephen Hill. Coach Dickey is in College Station today and is expected to be at St Pius tomorrow. Gunnell and his camp really like what Dickey has done at Memphis with Riley Ferguson and Paxton Lynch. The Houston Touchdown Club Player of the Year event happens tomorrow at the JW Marriott. The list of nominees should be well known names for those of you that follow recruiting. Here are a few...Offensive CyRanch OL Colten Blanton - A&MClear Brook WR - Caleb Chapman - A&MFt Bend Elkins OL Luke Matthews - A&MManvel WR Jalen Preston - A&MFt Bend Ridge Point TE Mustapha Muhammad - MichiganCrosby RB Craig Williams - BaylorDefensiveOak Ridge DE Joseph Ossai Ft Bend Ridge Point LB Chad Bailey - MissouriSpring Westfield DT Keondre Coburn - TexasKaty DT Moro Ojomo ...I think you'll see some members of the Aggie staff in attendance as well.

OL Keivan Myers, Dallas Bishop Dunne - 6-5, 330 and described as athletic. Yep, I'm interestedOL Ylijaah Hall, Bryan - big Centex OL is a guy the Aggies are watchingOL EJ Ndoma-Ogar, Allen (2019) - back from IMG, Ndoma-Ogar is one of the top OL prospects in Texas for 2019OL Brannon Brown, San Antonio O'Connor (2019) - holds a Texas Tech offer, had a big day at the Army Combine in San AntonioA few defensive prospects of noteDE Tyree Wilson, New London West Rusk - emerging DE prospect who I'm intrigued to see in person. 6-4, 225 and offers from ULL and Washington State.DE Ron Tatum, Oklahoma City (OK) Putnam City - top defensive lineman in Oklahoma with top national offersDE Ochaun Mathis , Manor - committed early to TCU. 6-5, 230DT Scale Igiehon, Del Valle - big DT who can do damage in the middle, 6-2, 330, holds a Texas State offerDT Nelson Jenkins, Plaquemine (LA) - committed to LSU in February after decommitting from KansasDT Lloyd Murray, Wichita Falls Hirschi (2019) - very active and strong DT, announced his FSU commitment ThursdayLB Byron Hobbs, Fort Worth Eastern Hills - long and athletic, his tape is fun and he holds offers from Oklahoma State, OU, and Texas to name a fewLB Nicholas Bolton, Frisco Lone Star - one of my personal favorites, intrigued to see how he measuresLB Mykel Gates, Carthage - active LB and multi-year starter for state champion CarthageLB Brian Johnson, Manvel - one of the more athletic LBs in the stateLB Chance Cover, Trophy Club Byron Nelson (2019) - recorded 125 tackles, 13 TFLs, and 2 sacks as a sophomoreS Caden Sterns, Cibolo Steele - LSU commit, top 10 in the stateS Kolby Peel, College Station A&M Consolidated Central Texas standout we've always been high on at TexAgs. S Isaiah Humphries, Sachse - top 50 Texas talent, committed to Penn State commitDB Dayven Coleman, West Mesquite - 6-2, 200 and can play CB, S, and even roll down, Syracuse is his most recent offer.S Jalen Catalon, Mansfield Legacy (2019) - Clemson offered this week. He's a little small, but he's one of the best defenders in the state. Almost 200 tackles and 9 INTs as a sophomore. CB RJ Mickens, Southlake Carroll )2019) - the son of Ray Mickens, started at Southlake Carroll as a freshman last year and is already approaching double digit offers as a 2020 prospect.Quick Notes- Wide receiver is absolutely loaded. There are more prospects holding Texas A&M offers and there is a great combination of size, speed, quickness, and overall playmaking ability. I would give it the nod as the deepest position group of the camp.- The OL group is strong as well. There's a lot of good depth there too. I'm predicting Brey Walker as the OL MVP right now, but it would not surprise me if Rafiti Ghirmai or Casey Phillips came from out of the pack to claim the honors.- My early contenders for fastest man would be Mansfield WR Jackson Gleeson and Rockdale athlete Jaquayln Crawford. Both of those guys can flat out fly.- The defensive end group has the most guys I really want to watch. TCU commit Ochaun Mathis, East Texas sleeper Tyree Wilson, national recruit Ron Tatum, and Euless Trinity DE Izaih Filikitonga all bring some intrigue to the table for me. And I have never seen any of them in person.- The S group another very strong. From Overshown to Catalon there are some are playmakers big and small and everything in between.- Speaking of intriguing the prospect A&M has offered that I'm most excited to see in person is Overshown. I want to see how big he actually is, how he moves, and what that frame looks like. - the guy I most want to see in person that does not have an offer is LB Nicholas Bolton. I love his tape but I've heard he is on the shorter side which has some schools holding off. We'll see. because he has been a defensive playmaker at Lone Star.- One guy I loved on tape that I think could come out of nowhere to make a name for himself is Livingston's Christian Mitchell. He's small but he can flat out go and he will be a tough cover in one-on-ones. Check out his tape if you haven't already.

Notes & Quotes from potential offers at The Opening - Houston
We'll continue to have full articles on those with spoke to with offers throughout the rest of the week, but I wanted to do an update on the guys we spoke with that have visited and still sit squarely on the A&M radar. Houston Bellaire DT Jayden Peevy - Peevy is an impressive physical specimen. He's every bit of 6-6 and 290 pounds, and he's only played football for a year (basketball). He committed to Baylor on Monday, but the Ags are far from being out of the race. He told me he continues to hear from A&M and the Aggies will continue to evaluate him this spring and summer. When I asked what would happen if the Aggies do offer, he told me, "They would be my top school." Look for Peevy to get back to campus in the next couple weeks. Plano West LB Mohamed Sanogo - Brice wrote about the 6-2.5, 235 pound backer in his report so I'll just leave you with some quotes. Mohamed told me, "A&M and Texas are the two schools that really stand out to me even though they haven't offered. Friday Night Lights was cool. It impressed me more than I thought it would, especially from a facilities standpoint...they were the best I've seen." Sanogo said the A&M staff will be in Plano to see him workout twice this spring, with the second trip being made by John Chavis to see him workout. He told me Chavis is "a cool guy. I like how he's straight forward. I talked to Claude (George) and Otaro (Alaka) a lot about Chief. They love him." Beaumont Ozen RB Calvin Tyler - Tyler checked in a little smaller than expected, but the Golden Triangle back can really move. Brice saw him in 1-v-1's and came away with his speed and elusiveness. He recently released a new highlight tape on YouTube for those of you interested in his game. Calvin told me he continues to stay in touch with Clarence McKinney. He says their relationship is solid and that McKinney talks to him about a lot of stuff outside of football. He's continued to hear the Aggies only plan on signing one running back though. Tyler is hearing a lot from Michigan St, Oklahoma St, and Cal. He's doing his best to get back to A&M for the Spring Game this weekend. College Station CB Timarcus Davis - "I don't know how this just happened. I had no idea I was even close." That was Davis' line to me after finishing the camp with the highest SPARQ score. Of course, it helps when you jump 45+ inches (highest so far in the country) in the vertical. Timarcus is a shade under 6 foot and still a bit skinny, but he can play football. He competes bigger than his size because of his elite athleticism. He'll continue to be evaluated by the A&M staff this spring and summer, but his offer list is well into double digits already. I expect that to grow as camp reports start coming out. College Station QB Ty Brock - Ty attended Friday Night Lights and continues to build on his relationship with Noel and Taylor Mazzone. Coming off the broken leg that took away his junior season, Ty has impressed at every camp he's been to. On Sunday, he was one of the final 5 QB's selected to perform in the "best of" drills. I asked former Aggie QB Jerrod Johnson (who works as a QB coach for these camps) about Ty, and he said, "I love him. He's going to be really good. You can just tell he's missing the game reps. The ball came out of his hand today as good as anybody." It's still unclear whether the Ags will be taking another QB, but I'd bet Ty will be a heavy eval down the road. 2018 Crosby RB Craig Williams - They call him "Sqwirl" (yes, spelled like that) for a reason. He can really, really run. Williams ran a 4.38 on Sunday. His biggest issue is going to be his size. He's just a small framed, short kid. He'll grow some I'm sure, and that elite speed will undoubtedly keep him on the radar for an offer, but he doesn't fit the mold of your typical SEC back. Williams has visited campus a couple times and talks with Clarence McKinney. He told me he feels like A&M "could definitely be a place for me. I can see myself there." With teammate and friend Mannie Netherly already committed, it'll be interesting to see where the Aggies go with the young scat back. 2018 Allen RB Brock Sturges - Sturges' move from Seven Lakes to Allen is just starting to make the rounds and so is his game. He scored in the top 10 of the SPARQ ratings in Houston and measured in at an impressive 5-10, 192 pounds. He's sturdy and has an excellent feel for the game. He impressed catching balls out of the backfield. His biggest issue right now seems to be breakaway speed. His 10-20 splits are solid, but he doesn't have the speed to pull away from defenders yet. He's also coming off some ligament issues in his ankle that hampered him in his sophomore season. He was chosen as a RB finalist on Sunday. Word is that Arkansas has begun sniffing around, but Sturges remains on the Aggies big board as well. 2018 CyCreek WR Miles Battle - Outside of Brennan Eagles (who said he hasn't heard much yet from A&M), I thought Battle was the best looking 2018 receiving prospect in Houston Sunday. He's got long arms and legs but is a smooth route runner. He sort of reminds me of Josh Reynolds. Battle was at FNL and said, "I loved the atmosphere and the way the receivers were working...and the locker room, man it was nice." He also mentioned to me how he liked A&M's academic set up and counselor system. He's been talking with Jeff Banks who he called "a real cool guy." Perhaps the biggest revelation was the guy that brought him to A&M originally, teammate and 2017 stud OL Grayson Reed.

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.”
