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.
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.

at the collegiate level. Displays all of the physical skills to be a future All-American

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.
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.”
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.”
