A few recruiting notes from Saturday's Pylon 7v7
Broken Arrow (OK) Myles Slusher visited Texas A&M a few weeks ago and the Aggies are a school to watch for the Oklahoma talent. He does not have plans to return to College Station at this time but he says he will definitely be back. He has plans to visit Alabama and Oregon coming up.Lancaster 2020 CB Lorando Johnson continues to put the Aggies high on his list but LSU is the school to watch in this one. He plans to visit next week and the Tigers are a team he has always eyed. There has always been a lot of LSU buzz there and that has not changed.Dallas Jesuit 2020 ATH EJ Smith is one of the harder prospects to get a read on. He continues to keep in touch with Texas A&M and he has visited a few times. There is interest. He is keeping things close to his vest but he does have a visit coming up to Stanford.Dallas Bishop Dunne 2020 TE Elijah Yelverton continues to keep in touch with TE coach Joe Jon Finley, and the Aggies let him know they will watch him closely in the spring.

News, notes, and some quick takes from the Opening Regional in Dallas
Big Impressions- Tommy Brockermeyer was again a standout performer. He has been very good at every stop and the 2021 OL from Fort Worth All Saints has made a strong case as a top five player in the 2021 class. He has been special at the Next Level Athlete Camp, Under Armour, and now the Opening Regional.-It was great to see Drew Sanders work at LB. It was not all crisp and clean, but it was easy to see he is dripping with athleticism. His lateral quickness and change of direction were unmatched plus he's big enough to take on and cover TEs down the field. It also sounds like he's coming around the idea of playing LB on the next level which could lead to good things for the Aggies.-Highland Park QB Chandler Morris was on his game today. He put the ball on the money time after time. He is not the biggest but he was accurate and showed plenty of arm. He took home QB MVP honors and there was no doubt he had the best day of any QB in the bunch.- Jalen Kimber blew the testing out of the water. He won the fastest man contest with a 4.43, he had a 4.0 shuttle, and he had a 40-inch vertical. He was pretty solid in one-on-ones, but man, he was different animal during testing. He also checked in at 6-foot, 170.Recruiting notesDenton Braswell 2021 OL Erick Cade has been high on the Aggies, but he was a big Jim Turner fan and he was sad to see him go. Texas seems to have capitalized on that a bit and Herb Hand is a guy he has really gotten close to. He has not gotten to know coach Henson yet, but I look for that to change. The Aggies remain high on his list, but I would give the edge to Texas right now.Oak Grove (LA) 2020 DT Kenean Caldwell talked very highly of his relationship with coach Peveto and coach Robinson. He plans to visit TCU and Texas A&M soon. He camped in College Station last summer.Hebron 2020 S Darius Snow recently narrowed his list to 13 and the Aggies made the cut. He is working towards a top five, and one school he said he hopes to visit this spring is Texas A&M. He wants to take at least one official visit this spring, but he has not decided where that will be.Duncanville 2020 ATH Ja'Quinden Jackson worked at QB today. He's hoping to schedule some visits in the near future. Texas, LSU, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Texas A&M are showing the most interest and said he texts with them daily. Coach Linguist is leading the Aggies efforts and he mentioned that his confidence stands out. Jesuit 2020 ATH EJ Smith spoke with coach Fisher the other day and he likes the Aggies' style of play. He is playing his cards close to the vest, but the Aggies are one school he talks of highly.Mansfield Timberview CB Jalen Kimber just returned from Texas and most of the buzz surrounding him today had to do with Texas and Notre Dame. He also mentioned Missouri, TCU, Arkansas, and Texas A&M as schools he is closely looking into. Coach Linguist remains in contact for the Aggies. Right now he has plans to visit Arkansas, Notre Dame and Alabama, and he just returned from a visit to Texas.Thoughts on some key prospects-Little Elm 2020 CB Ryan Watts - Very physical. When he pressed, good luck to the WR. Watts also measure in at 6-3, 185 and had a 38-inch vertical. He will visit Texas A&M towards the end of this week.-Lancaster 2020 CB Lorando Johnson speaking of physical he has always been one of the more physical DBs out there and today was more of the same.-Denton Braswell 2021 OL Erick Cade It was an ok day. He passes the eye ball test and he is a big athlete, but he is on the raw side. His hands are absolutely huge.-Jesuit 2020 ATH EJ Smith Great day. He was one of the best WRs out there. Cat quick, and explosive. He showed some great hands throughout the day.A couple of prospects to watch-Frisco Reedy 2020 OL Nathan Anderson also had a very strong day. He checked in at 6-5, 260, and he clocked a 4.2 shuttle. He won most of his reps and he was another one who had a big day last weekend. He's one of the more athletic OL in the 2020 class, bends well, and he has a strong punch. Keep an eye on this guy. He's on the Texas A&M's radar and he has a good relationship with coach Henson. DeSoto 2021 DT Byron Murphy II jumped out to me as the top DL today. He is on the shortside but he is quick and explosive. He's an athletic three and he gave offensive linemen fits all day. His go to move, a spin move, was on point today, and often deployed.

Wednesday recruiting quick hitters
- There's a new 2020 name emerging on the offensive line out of east Texas. We've been getting word that Athens big man Garrett Hayes has begun catching the eye of a ton of big name programs, including Texas A&M. Keep an eye out here for a potential offer in the future. - Some out of state names that have been receptive to the A&M recruiting pitch recently are DE Fadil Diggs out of New Jersey, LB Jackson Bratton in Alabama, Jaquelin Roy across the Sabine in Louisiana, edge rusher Latarie Kinsler out of Pahokee, Florida, DB Myles Slusher in Oklahoma, Illinoisan DB Antonio Johnson (likely spring visitor), and WR Jordan Johnson (ND the leader) in Missouri. I also would place bets a few of the following West Coasters to make spring/summer visits: DB Elias Ricks, DB Clark Phillips, LB Justin Flowe, RB Sam Adams, and TE Darnell Washington- In state, I've gotten reports that the Aggies continue to inch in the right direction with Cedar Creek DE Alfred Collins. Terry Price and Mike Elko are working hard on this one and still have some hurdles to clear, but the latest news is positive. - Staying in Texas, nothing has changed on the A&M front with in state DB's Dwight McGlothern, Lorando Johnson, and Xavion Alford. All three will continue to get the full attention of the staff throughout the spring.- The Aggies are trending favorably with Baton Rouge (LA) ATH Joel Williams, as well. Word on the street is he'll make a spring decision with possibly some OV's happening soon after the Dead Period ends. Williams is a gifted, highly touted kid that can play corner, safety, or receiver. He'd likely start out on the defensive side if he chose the Aggies, though.

A few Sunday evening notes
Hebron S Darius Snow dropped his top 13 and the Aggies made the cut. was not able to make it down to the Super Bowl party, but he continues to stay in regular contact with the A&M staff. He tells me he does not have any visits scheduled at this time, but I could see a spring visit in his future.As we reported earlier this week, Baton Rouge (LA) Madison Prep and Texas A&M commit Major Burns took a visit to LSU yesterday. He was in communication with the A&M coaches about the visit, so it was not something out of the blue. The word I received was he had a good time with his teammates, but one source close to Burns' recruitment describing the visit as "okay."After the visit, Burn's told me "I'm staying home with my Gig 'em family."Lancaster CB Lorando Johnson looks like he's about to shake things up here pretty soon. has been viewed as the longtime favorite with Texas A&M at the No. 2 spot and Arkansas rounding out his top three, but it looks like there is about to be a shake-up. Two schools we're hearing to keep an eye on are Ohio State and Alabama. Both have been making a strong push up his list. Regardless of the list, I won't be shocked to see things change a few times before he his final decision.

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.”
