Running weekend recruiting thread
With as fluid as the visitor situation looks like it's going to be, I figured I'd sticky a running thread for the entire weekend. We didn't put out a traditional list because most of the kids we've talked to or head from sources on are still working out what they're going to do. We will update this thread as we get word on visitors through the night and into the day tomorrow.So, let's start with some things I know ( least things I think I know):- Camden (NJ) DE Fadil Diggs will be in town with his mom. Aggies continue to trend here. - Ft Bend Austin WR Troy Omeire is coming to College Station. He will also visit Texas the following day. - I spoke with Demond Demas earlier today. He will be in town again this weekend. Unsure of how long he'll stay. - There will be a group of kids come in on Saturday still even without the Spring Game. OL commit Josh Bankhead will be one of those. - I still expect all the official visits to take place with the question mark being Charlotte (NC) WR Muhsin Muhammad III. He tweeted that he'd be at Kentucky tomorrow. That doesn't mean he won't make it to College Station though. The last bit of intel I had gotten indicated he would still be coming, but we are waiting confirmation one way or the other. - To recap, those other OV's are Braedon Mowry, Josh Ellison, Jaylon Jones, and Maliq Carr. Miscellaneous- I've spoken with Vernon Broughton, Alfred Collins, Tunmise Adeleye, Smart Chibuzo, and Kameron Dewberry all in the last couple of days. Each one of them said they were trying to do what they could to get to College Station tomorrow. They were working on logistics with rides. - A&M Consolidated WR Devin Price thought the reschedule may help his case to come to the game, but his 7 on 7 team is heading to Dallas tonight instead of tomorrow to compete in a big time tournament. - I've again heard twice in the last day or so that the Aggies hold all the momentum with Memphis (TN) OL Chris Morris. The sources I've heard from are very plugged in. That would classify as a real out of state coup on the offensive line should A&M land him. - I believe A&M would put another recruiting weekend together if they felt they needed to before the end of the semester.

Tuesday lunch recruiting intel
- Something of note regarding midweek, highly regarded TE visitor Arik Gilbert from Georgia. He's pretty close with Tony Ballard, a well reknown QB coach in the Peach State who just so happened to train Zach Calzada. Ballard also has a couple ties in College Station. It may be nothing, it may be something. Either way, I think it's noteworthy. - I spoke with 2019 commits Josh Ellison and Braedon Mowry directly today. Ellison said his grades have gotten much better, and he's on track to fulfill his grayshirt plans. He also said he's gotten his weight back up to 280 pounds. He played around 265-270 as a senior. The A&M staff would like for him to be around 290 when he arrives next January. I also got encouraging news from Mowry. Braedon said, "Everything is great," in terms of his progress. He's trying to make it up to College Station this weekend, but if he can't, he said he'll for sure be in town on April 13th. - Weekend visitors include 2021 Denton Ryan ATH Billy Bowman Jr as well as big time defensive end Jason Harris out of Arizona. Both should be in town on Saturday.

Josh Ellison's plans
Terry Price and other members of the A&M staff have met with longtime commit DT Josh Ellison, his family, and Consol HC Lee Fedora over the last week or so. From what I was told today, Josh's academic standing is indeed much improved. However, he will not be signing tomorrow. The plan for Ellison is to continue to improve his academic stock and sign with the Aggies at a later date. Josh's plan is to grayshirt and join the A&M football team in 2020. I view this as a net positive for a couple of reasons. If Josh had gone to junior college (and there were talks about Blinn and other in state JC's being a landing spot), he would have likely have had to stay for two years. Odds are he plays during those two seasons so if he had ultimately signed with A&M from there, the Aggies would have only gotten him for two years. This also gives the A&M staff a much better track on his progress in the weight room. Remember, after playing at 305 pounds as a sophomore, Ellison played his senior season around 270. He lost the bad weight and wants to get back into the 290-300 range the right way.It should also be noted that the 2020 in-state DT class isn't that all. The Aggies adding Ellison as an in-state defensive tackle essentially in that class helps ease the depth concerns.

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.”
