Some defensive line recruiting notes
Terry Price rounded out his spring evals this week with a look at Arlington Lamar big man Bobby Brown (#14 overall in Texas). The Aggies, and many others, are eyeing the 6-4, 280 pounder as a dynamic inside presence. His speed and lateral quickness make him a nice inside target in a four man front, but that athleticism also means he could play end in a 3-4. Texas A&M remains a real player with Alabama, Oklahoma, and Texas also being possibilities.In terms of top targets along the defensive front, after gathering intel over the spring, I think it lines up like this...DE1. Max Wright 2. Joseph Ossai 3. Vernon Jackson 4. Ochaun Mathis (no offer yet but being evaluated)DT1. Keondre Coburn 2. Bobby Brown3. Calvin Avery 4. Tayland Humphrey Speaking of Wright, I'm told A&M has no intention of playing of playing him inside. Max is currently 265 pounds and impressed college coaches from multiple schools with his speed and athleticism this spring. He's underrated in that department. Lastly, here are some 2019 DE names we continue hear buzz about in terms of potential offers: Katy Taylor's Braedon Mowry, Ft Bend Ridge Point's Nelson Ceasar, and Hunstville's T'Vondre Sweat. Mowry and Ceasar are top 50 players in the state, and it won't be long before Sweat finds his way there as well. I've also heard some interesting things about A&M Consolidated DT Josh Ellison. I haven't seen a more explosive defensive tackle in the 2019 class, and college coaches are starting to figure that out.

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.”
