As we expected Lejond Cavazos received his scholarship offer. Also a standout in track the Aggies also talked track with him. He is very familiar with the A&M program and I've been told the Aggie offer was an impactful one. he came in studio after the visit and we will have an interview posted soon.- Mansfield Legacy 2019 S Jalen Catalon was not able to make it to town today, but he does plan to make it to College Station soon.- After the spring game Alston Orji and Anfernee Orji were able to meet with coach Chavis.

5 thoughts on the 2018 Texas Top 100 rankings
The rankings need a little adjustment and here are a few things that have been on my mind following the camp season (Under Armour, the Opening).1. Anthony Cook is my No. 1 cornerback - I have been the biggest advocate for Jalen Green being No. 1 and I love his size and overall athleticism. It is special and this does not change that. However, Anthony Cook is as good as it gets as a lockdown, man-to-man cover corner. His fluid hips allow him to twist and turn without losing a step and his long arms always seem to find their way in between his man and the ball. He is not without questions but there is no doubt he had one heck of a camp season and for his efforts he moves from No. 2 to No. 1 for me.2. Tommy Bush will make a move up the rankings - After what I saw in workouts, his test numbers, and his performances at camps I would say he has made a strong case to be considered a top 5 receiver. That is saying a lot considering the current top five is 1. Jalen Preston, 2. Al'vonte Woodard, 3. Montel Parker, 4. Joshua Moore, and 5. Brennan Eagles. Talk about a crowded and talented group. It is definitely deep, but Bush has made strides with his footwork and his ability to get in and out of his breaks has come a long way with his hard work. This will be one fun discussion during the ranking process.3. Keaontay Ingram making a move to No. 1 RB - This is one thought I have not had to wrestle with much. Ingram is the best feature back the state has produced in the 2018 class. He has the size and build to take the pounding of the SEC, he has that explosive power and balance, and he has a well-rounded game which will allow him to stay on the field regardless of the personnel package. 4. I am most intrigued by DeMarvion Overshown - I really wish I could have seen the Arp athlete over the last few months. He may be the guy I am most excited to see in person. I have my questions. How big is he really? Will he get too big for safety? Can he end up at LB? He is a bit of a mystery, but we also have a few answers like he will absolutely knock your block off. He has some great body control. There is a lot of length there. It is hard to say because I had a better feel for Justin Dunning at this time in the process but there are some similarities from a size and projection standpoint. I knew more about Dunning's athleticism and frame though. I saw him in person a few times by this point. However, Overshown seems to play with a harder edge. 5. From outside to in - The following are guys who will likely make a move from the outside the 100 to inside.LB Byron Hobbs, Fort Worth Eastern Hills - great upside with his length and athleticism LB DaShaun White, North Richland Hills Richland - hits a ton, and one of the best against the passTE Bralen Taylor, Cuero - he may be the best pure athlete at the position. Plus he has great size.OL Demarcus Marshall, Grand Prairie - really came on strong in the last month of camp season, an absolute mauler.Bonus Quick HittersS Leon O'Neal may still be underrated as the No. 2 safety in state and No. 17 in state. He's making a push for the top 10 in my mindLB Bumper Pool maintains his spot as the state's top LBIf I was looking to offer an OG I would offer OL Demarcus Marshall yesterdayKeondre Coburn had the most impressive set of 1-on-1 OL/DL reps I saw at any camp. He went against LSU 2019 commit Kardell Thomas at the Under Armour Camp in Houston and put him on the ground on one and countered him perfectly the next. Why is that so amazing? Thomas has been the most dominating OL I have seen at camps in a long long time. OL Darrell Simpson has worked his way back up my list. He has been lighter on his feet than I have seen him in the past.

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.”
