Coaches on the road
Here's some stuff that Jason and I have gotten over the last day or so...A lot of people saw the Twitter post with Isaiah Spiller's father, Fred, and RB coach Jay Graham yesterday. I heard Graham spent the majority of the day at Klein Collins. It wasn't just a quick sit down. He met with a lot of folks that are important to Spiller. It seems like Isaiah is becoming more of a priority at the moment. Terry Price is making the rounds in Houston today to see commit Braedon Mowry as well as top target Marcus Stripling. I'm told he'll also check in on Ft Bend Ridge Point DE/OLB Nelson Ceasar. Ceasar would love an A&M offer and recently told me he would be making a summer visit. Offensive coordinator continues to keep tabs on SA Jay QB Jacob Zeno, but from what I hear, Grant Gunnell remains at the forefront of the QB plans. Memphis (TN) signal caller Jackson Walker has relatives in College Station and continues to be evaluated as well. The OC will also hit Ft Bend pretty hard from what I hear with stops at Clements, Dulles, and Travis.From Jason HowellTexas A&M is out and about today. The Katy area should see some maroon today. In addition to Stripling and Mowry, David Gbenda and David Ugwoegbu to see the staff soon. It also sounds like the Aggies will make it by St. Pius this week, maybe even today. It is no secret St. Pius is a hot spot for the Aggies with receiver commit Chase Lane and key targets 5-star QB Grant Gunnell and former FSU commit WR Jalen Curry . In the Dallas, I'm hearing the Aggies will stop in to see 2019 WR Dylan Wright today. The Aggies will also check in with DB commits Demani Richardson and Brian Williams.

Defensive notes and Evals from The Opening Regionals
Part Two of my notes and evaluations from Sunday's Nike Opening Regionals in Katy will examine the defensive side of the ball.DT/DEKori Roberson is more of a pads type of player. He was solid in drill work, but he wants to use his power in 1 on 1's and that setting is tough to do it in. He makes a ton of plays in game action because of motor and physical strength. The Oklahoma commit was pretty open about listening to other schools. 2020 Shadow Creek DE Alec Bryant will be one to watch. He's got an older brother playing college football, and he showed plus tools to go with his promising frame. 2020 Richmond Foster DT Chidozie Nwankwo is really powerful. He's got the biggest triceps I've ever seen on a kid. Made me a bit jealous. Anyway, he's a little on the short side, but he's going to be a problem for a lot of offensive linemen because of his strength and leverage.Ridge Point DE Nelson Ceasar recently picked up OU and Georgia offers. I may like him more as a standup OLB than a weakside DE though. He's certainly explosive and has a nice wingspan. He's under heavy evaluation from the Aggie staff and has been in contact in the past month or so. George Ranch DE Peter Mpagi is an interesting prospect. He's got a track type lower body. A&M went and saw him multiple times this past winter. He's got an older sister that runs track at Texas if I'm not mistaken. TCU is highly interested and probably the current favorite. Marcus Stripling didn't lose many reps from what I saw. He's wide, explosive, and strong. He will visit Georgia and Oklahoma soon, but he was rocking the A&M gloves and spoke very highly of the Aggies. He was at Saturday's Junior Day and has openly called A&M his leader. He spent some time working with Ty Warren as well. The surprise DT for me on the day was Houston Bellaire's Christian Njoku. He's got small school offers (ULM, UTSA), but I'd bet his list grows pretty quickly. He was making easy work of some of those OL during pass rush drills. He comes in at around 6-3, 270.Another intriguing interior guy is Waller's Gabe Hall. I wasn't able to see much of him during one on ones, but his 6-5, 285 pound frame had a lot of folks in attendance talking. He holds a UH offer currently.LBThere were three 2019 guys I had written down last night to talk about, and one of those got an offer from the Aggies - Cinco Ranch's David Gbenda. I was most impressed with his mobility. He moves like a running back. On film, he tackles everything. I actually like the offer. In terms of in state guys with sideline to sideline ability, Gbenda may be at the top of the list.The other two guys I had on my list were Alamo Height's Maki Carabin and Ft Bend Travis' Zach Zimos. Carabin looks like he's grown an inch or two in the last year, and he's as put together as anybody inside LB in the state. He doesn't miss many days in the gym. His parents told me that A&M went by the school a couple of times to see him, but there hadn't been much else in terms of communication. Zimos is interesting because he's 6-4 and most of his film is at safety. If that 205 on the scale can turn to 215 or 220 before the season, he's going to get a lot of looks. In 2020, I liked Josh White out of CyCreek. He's got broad shoulders and a good linebacker frame. He was recently offered by Baylor and has more schools in the region sniffing around. DBA&M commit Bobby Wolfe is really good. Like exceptionally good. He checks every single box when looking for an SEC corner and is quickly becoming one of the more vocal members of the 2019 commit class. At 6-2, he ran 4.51 on a cold, wet, windy day. In terms of football IQ and pure coverage ability, I think JaCorey Benjamin is being slept on. He's not as thick as some of the other DB's in the class, but he's got great feet, hips, and he plays the ball well. Somebody is going to get a steal with this kid. Spring Dekaney CB Marcus Banks is likely leaning toward Texas, but he showed up in an A&M hoodie. He had a pretty strong day as well. His burst and straight line speed really stand out. He's another one that has a thinner frame, but he's long enough that it should fill out. Ft Bend Bush S Jamal Morris is a big dude. I could see him being an in the box player at the next level. At one point, my money would have been on LSU, but he seems more open to a lot of places. I don't think the Aggies are a player at the moment.I liked what I saw out of Houston Lamar's Alex Hogan in the few reps I watched. He was in an uber talented defensive backfield last season so he's learned how to play the game. Ft Bend Bush CB Erick Young showed up but did not participate due to a broken hand. He will compete in Dallas in a couple months. The Aggies biggest competition right now is Oklahoma and LSU. I think the Ags win out ultimately.

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.

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.”
