Dead Period - What went on and what's next?
With the nearly month long Dead Period coming to a close this week, I thought it may be a good exercise to lay out what we think will happen this week in terms of recruiting. I'll leave the floor open for Jason and/or Looch to add whatever they expect as well...-There's no question that this has been a bit of a rough patch for the Aggies. Since the coaching change, the Aggies have lost commitments from Dominic Livingston (LSU), Bobby Brown (Bama), Leon O'Neal (undecided) and DaShaun White (Oklahoma). They've also had multiple schools target guys like Tyree Wilson, Jalen Preston, and Grant Gunnell (2019). It's been six years since the A&M program has undergone a regime change so it's a good reminder that these things are pretty common. Is it tough to deal with? Absolutely. However, when it comes down to it, it's the nature of the beast. Even with the defections, I don't think any Aggie fans would argue that the A&M football program is on firmer ground than it was 6-7 weeks ago, and that should be encouraging. -Let's go back and look at the decommitments and what determined the changes of heart...Dominic Livingston - Dom backed away from A&M with Kevin Sumlin still in charge. His reasoning was that he didn't want to feel like he was going behind anyone's back or betraying any verbal agreement with A&M while taking other visits. Enter Jimbo Fisher. While Livingston wanted to give the Ags' new head man a chance to win him back, he never felt like he was prioritized. Whether that was true or not, he took his official to LSU shortly thereafter and wound up inking with the Tigers in the early signing period. Leon O'Neal - While Livingston's recommitment came somewhat out of nowhere, it was made pretty clear that Leon would look around in the event of a coaching change...which is exactly what he need. Leon didn't know what kind of priority he'd be to Jimbo Fisher after failing to get a Florida St offer. The new A&M head man quickly calmed those seas though - making Leon one of his primary points of contact once he arrived in Aggieland. While O'Neal has other visits in the works (Clemson, Georgia), the CySprings safety is still a good bet to return to the fold as things stand today. Bobby Brown - this one had more twists and turns over a 2-3 day span than any recruitment I've witnessed. Brown was pretty straightforward about his intentions to remain an Aggie should Terry Price be retained. Then, seemingly out of the blue, he decommits and a couple of days later makes a pledge to Alabama. It'll be interesting to see where this one goes for A&M (if anywhere at all) after the Dead Period. DaShaun White - for all intents and purposes, White hadn't felt like a commit in a while. To his credit, he had been pretty open about how a coaching change would affect his recruitment. However, he did technically stick around longer than many would have thought, but the talk behind closed doors had long been that White was Norman bound in just a matter of time. He made it public on Saturday. So, what happens next? Well, here are some things I think you'll see take place once the coaches get the green light to get back on the road...-I think you'll see Jimbo Fisher and Darrell Dickey prioritize locking down Jalen Preston. The talented Manvel WR has been getting the full sale from Arkansas, Florida, and Texas to some degree. After doing some digging, it sounds like those programs are telling JP that there will be a lack of wideouts on the field in Fisher's system, and that the offense won't allow him to use his skill set like a wide open, true spread type of attack would. Preston has official set up for the weekend of the 19th. An ideal post-visit situation would see Preston completely shut down the idea of visits elsewhere. Make no mistake, there are members of the A&M class worried about JP.-I think you'll see these guys get early attention/visits from members of the A&M staff: Jalen Preston, Joseph Ossai, Moro Ojomo, Jaylen Waddle, Keondre Coburn, Isaac Taylor-Stuart, Leon O'Neal, Tyree Wilson, and Grant Gunnell-Speaking of Wilson, the longtime Aggie commit out of east Texas has set up an official visit to Arkansas along with grabbing offers from Florida and Texas. I've been told some members of his HS coaching staff have close ties to the Razorbacks. -I think the new staff being entirely in place will (obviously) mean a few new names will emerge at positions like linebacker and tight end. Keep an eye on Louisiana TE Glenn Beal. The Aggies would like to get him on campus, but he's flirted publicly with making a commitment soon. -I wonder what the vibe is going to be like from Boling's Vernon Jackson, Yoakum's Joshua Moore, and San Bernardino's (CA) Jeremiah Martin. Jackson remains committed to Bama, but his skill set is something Jimbo Fisher and Darrell Dickey covet. Josh Moore's brother, Jordan Moore, has signed with the Aggies already, and he's now expressed interest in playing on either side of the ball. You'd think the Aggies would have a great shot at landing him should they make a push. Out west, Martin has been pretty straightforward about the Aggies and Sooners being 1, 2 on his list. Could he find his way to town unofficially? I'd keep an eye on it. -I believe you'll see A&M push to get JUCO DE Dorian Gerald in for an official visit. According to a source close to the situation, the communication between Gerald and the Aggies has been encouraging, but the talented edge man remains in regular, positive contact with a lot of SEC programs vying for his services. -You got different views on Jaylen Waddle after the Army bowl depending on who you talked to. After sifting through everything the best I could from multiple sources, I still believe the Aggies and Crimson Tide are the odds on favorites. At least two well connected Houston folks that I speak to regularly say Texas A&M holds the edge here in early January. -After the entire staff is in place, I believe we'll begin to see new offers fly out. I mean, offensively, they'll probably start happening as soon as early this week since the entire coaching group on that side of the ball has been officially announced. -I got a good report on Florida RB Charles Strong while in San Antonio this week. A southeast source told me that Ole Miss currently stands out as the primary contender - something first reported by Jason a week or so ago. ...I know that's a lot, but I'm sure I left something out. I'll make sure that Jason and/or Looch chime in with anything they feel needs to be added.

A Few Army Bowl Recruiting Notes
- Isaac Taylor-Stuart does not know when he plans to take his unofficial visit to A&M in January, but it is something he has mentioned. He's still trying to figure out when and how he will get his official visit to Alabama in. As for Elko, he didn't really know much about Elko. He did know Elko kept USC to a low score while at Notre Dame. He basically said as long as Elko's a good guy, he'll have no problems with him. Taylor-Stuart has one crazy month ahead of him with four official visits and a possible unofficial visit to A&M. Getting him back to College Station before he announces will be key to the Aggies' chances in my opinion.- Leon O'Neal thought the Elko hire was a big change for the Aggies. He said, he's a "beast coach" and he likes the way he challenges and loves his players. He is familiar with Elko from his Notre Dame days, and he liked him with the Irish.- Like I mentioned in the DaShaun White thread, I'm expecting an announcement today and it does not look good for the Aggies. I'm predicting he will be a Sooner at this point.- On a positive note, there was some were quite a few A&M vibes surrounding Jaylen Waddle here in San Antonio. I like A&M's chances right now.

Isaac Taylor-Stuart
I caught up with Isaac Taylor-Stuart this morning. He did not practice due to an ankle injury but he's going to try to play in the game. This next month is going to be very big for him. He already has official visits scheduled for USC, Georgia, and Tennessee, and he will also play in the Polynesian Bowl. He is planning to take an unofficial visit to College Station to get another look at A&M. It sounds like that is going to be a mid-week trip, but he does not have that scheduled yet. He is watching the DC coach search closely and has been in contact with coach Fisher. As for Alabama, he's still trying to figure that one out. He did say there is a possibility that he doesn't sign on Signing Day and taking a post-Signing Day visit to Alabama.

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.”
