Defensive line recruiting update
- Many of you have asked about the futures of 2019 commits Braedon Mowry and Josh Ellison so I reached out to some sources to check back in on both. I'll start with Mowry, and all signs continue to point to him being here in January. He speaks to Terry Price pretty regularly, and it has been relayed to him how valuable his skill set is for the coaching staff. Remember, Mowry can really run. He most resembles Tyree Johnson on the current roster, but I'd say he's more explosive as a prospect than Tyree was coming out. Where Johnson was probably further along was in his pass rush repertoire. Mowry has plenty of the raw tools to get polished after some time on campus with TP though. I'm not as confident that Ellison makes it to campus on January. The source I spoke with last night remained confident that he was still in the Aggies' plans, but he was unsure of what the timetable would look like. Ellison has had a nice freshman campaign at Blinn and continues to fill up the stat sheet as a defensive tackle. Academically, both should be fine going forward barring something unforeseeen. Also, other schools have definitely started sniffing around on both guys - most notably LSU, Mississippi St, and Baylor. - Howell be on site to see 2021 Desoto DE Shemar Turner tonight, but it was relayed to me late last night that he's very much in the mix at the top of the Aggie big board on the defensive line in 2021. We've heard there are good things emanating from Turner's camps so it'll be interesting to hear what he tells the Howeller tonight. - I spoke with Looch last night about DE target Donell Harris and then checked around on him this morning. To be frank, the Aggies are going to be in a dog fight with this one. Harris is listening to a lot of different recruiting pitches from a lot of big time programs. A&M continues to be amongst those in the ring though. In August, the Ags were the leader. I don't think there's a question about that. He came close to making the call more than once, too. Now, things seem a little more murky. The A&M staff has some great tie-ins with Harris and that Miami area. We'll see if that's enough to hold off the other suitors.

Visitor list - Texas St
As expected, light list this week. Thursday night kick on a school night against a non P5 with most prospects opening up their seasons means very few guys coming to town. Tomball WR Demond Demas Ft Bend Hightower OL Smart Chibuzo Navasota OL/DL Jordan Jefferson Blinn JC DT Josh Ellison - depends on their practice It wouldn't surprise me to see a couple more local kids come, but even Devin Price said he'd probably watch this one from home.

A pair of Monday afternoon recruiting notes
- I spoke to a source very near to Ft Bend Marshall RB Devon Achane late last week and over the weekend. If you'll remember, I talked to Achane at the Houston Touchdown Club preseason award ceremony where he was honored as one of the top players in Houston heading into the 2019 season. Also, OL commit Akinola Ogunbiyi told me he'd been working hard on Achane since the pool party. The southwest Houston presence on the A&M roster should help the Aggies. Achane also mentioned how he goes back a ways with Jalen Preston. Achane said he's got his list down to 4-5 schools. He has already taken an official visit to North Carolina, but he did not mention the Tar Heels amongst his favorites. The schools he rattled off were A&M, LSU, Florida State, Houston, and Alabama. It's also worth noting that he did not mention Auburn given that I had recently heard Gus Malzahn had begun really taking an interest in Ft Bend Marshall QB Malik Hornsby. My source did say LSU had picked up communication in recent weeks, but he was confident in A&M holding the lead as the season gets underway. Achane told me the Aggies will for sure get an OV, but he was still working with Darrell Dickey to figure out the best date for him to come to campus. I was told that no coach had formed a relationship with Achane like Dickey had. He's clearly been working on him the most since the Aggies offered back in December. My source said Achane felt like he hadn't done enough homework over the summer to make a decision before the season. Therefore, he'll more than likely wait until all of his visits are done. "When Devon commits, he is done," my source said. "He's not the kind of kid to do it just to do it." - I checked around with a few folks on Blinn JC DT Josh Ellison. First, I can tell you that the coaching staff over there has been extremely high on Josh since he got to campus. In a report by local KAGS sports reporter Mike Lucas over the weekend, Blinn head coach Ryan Mahon called Ellison "a human wrecking ball who can ruin an entire offensive line on one play." In regards to Ellison's future after Blinn, I was told he's still very much in the Aggies' future plans, and Josh still very much wants to be an Aggie. Whether he returns back to Aggieland after one season or two remains to be seen, but whatever the timetable, I think he'll be in Maroon and White at some point.

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.

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.”
