Notes from Day 2 of A&M football camp
The offersFour new offers went out today. One to a rising senior with an interesting background, one to a 2021 pass rusher, and a pair to a couple of the state's top 2022's. To start, North Shore LB Matthew Roberts was offered after a strong showing in front of Bradley Dale Peveto. Matthew is the older brother of standout 2021 OL Jaeden Roberts. They both played last year at St Thomas Aquinas HS in Lenexa, Kansas. However, this offseason they are moving to Texas and found a home in greater Houston with the defending state champion North Shore Mustangs. First, that's a huge get for a program that's already ridiculously loaded with college players. Secondly, it means the Aggies are going continue to break through there on the east side of H-town. Matthew is a sturdy backer at 6-1, 215. He's heavy with his punch and does a good job of keeping his pad level down while fighting through traffic and taking on blockers. He currently holds offers from Kansas, Kansas St, BYU, Utah State, and Wyoming, but programs like Florida and Iowa are sniffing around currently. The two 2022 offers that went out were to Beaumont West Brook S Bryce Anderson and Southlake Carroll QB Quinn Ewers. Both kids look like they'll be near the top of their respective positions in the state in terms of prospects. Anderson is a fluid athlete that started a lot of games for last year's state finalist. He's a natural catching the football and showed an easy back pedal and sudden change of direction in today's drill work. Be on the lookout for a full interview with Bryce soon. Quinn Ewers was a no brainer offer. You could watch that kid throw one ball, and say, "Ok, he's elite." I can't imagine there are many sophomores-to-be in America with this kid of arm strength. It's an easy, efficient throwing motion. The ball pops out of hands and doesn't break plane to the receiver. Watching him throw, you'd never guess he's 15. He's so efficient with his mechanics, and you can tell he understands trajectory and arc. Like I said, this was a no brainer. Jimbo Fisher, Darrell Dickey, and Austin Thomas spent quite a bit of time watching him throw during the camp this afternoon. Lastly, 2021 DeSoto DE Shemar Turner impressed both Elijah Robinson and Terry Price enough to earn an offer today. Turner flashed explosive hips, a strong punch, and quick change of direction for a 6-4, 260 pounder. He's got plenty of speed off the edge to go with that power, as well. He's stocky, but you'd never guess he weighed 260 by the way he runs and bends. My best comparison might be Landis Durham, but I think he's much further along physically than Landis was as a rising junior. Both Howell and I really liked this offer after watching Turner shine today. Names to know/watchI'll say this: the kid that has impressed me the most so far this week is 2021 CB Kaleb Higgins. The younger brother of Elijah Higgins who signed with Stanford last year, Kaleb is making the move from Austin Bowie to Cibolo Steele to play in the same secondary as A&M pledge Jaylon Jones. Higgins has plenty of length at 6-2 and long arms. The frame says he can hold another 15 pounds without question. You can also tell the kid enjoys being coached. He's running around between drills and hopping to the front of the lines. Don't be surprised if an offer comes his way. He's consistently been praised by Mo Linguist and Mike Elko this week. I'd also bet on a whole host of other schools jumping on board should the Aggies decide to extend an offer. Let's get back to 2021 OL Jaeden Roberts. I would like to be the first to say...holy crap. This kid is freak show. When we re-do our rankings next go around, it's going to be hard for me to believe he won't find himself in the state's top 10. Even with the type of talent in the 2021 OL class, Roberts is a clear cut, bonafide blue chip. He's massive. He's strong, He's explosive. He's pretty solid with his technique. I knew this was a different dude when they were outside doing warmups, and Jerry Schmidt was making the entire group do extended plyometric work. The drill was to sprint 10 yards then begin 20 yards of vertical jumps while tucking your knees into your chest at the apex of your leap. Roberts did this like he weighed 175 pounds. I'd never seen a 340 pound human jump like that. I didn't need to see much more, but he was excellent in the OL drill work and then mauled a couple of DE's in one-on-ones. When I spoke to him after he was offered by A&M, he explained to me how pumped he was to receive an offer from his future in-state school, and from what I've heard, his inner circle left today feeling good about Texas A&M. Long way to go for Roberts, but I just wanted y'all to understand what type of prospect we are talking about here. Nationally elite, without question. Some more names thought I thought stood out:Tomball QB Hunter Dunn - wiry frame, but the ball really jumps out of his hand. I like his ceiling. Columbia QB Cam Ward - huge arm with thick frame. Darrell Dickey praised him a lot today. 2021 PN-G QB Blake Bost - southpaw that impressed with his feet and savvy. Two sport standout (baseball)Nashville (TN) LB Junior Colson - has an A&M offer and ties to Bradley Dale Peveto. Will visit again for a game.Long time CB commit Jaylon Jones was outstanding today. He's so physical and attacks the football in the air. A&M has got themselves a really good player, and, if you watched my interview with him today, you know he's locked in with the Aggies. Tomorrow will conclude this week's set of camps, and the Aggies are expecting a lot more well known in state guys to make it in. Here are a few names...Aldine MacArthur CB Josh Eaton Shadow Creek S Xavion Alford Navasota OL Jordan Jefferson The Woodlands College Park OL Josh Bankhead Ft Bend Bush LB Kenneth Phillips Legacy TE/HBack Reggie Brown North Shore CB Joseph Wilson

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.”
