My notes from the weekend
I was at three games this weekend. Thursday was DeSoto's blowout win over Denton Guyer. Friday was Parkway vs. Pearl (MS) in Shreveport. Saturday was Bishop Dunne vs. Brentwood Academy. Here's a few thoughts and notes.********The toughest thing I had to see this weekend was Terrace Marshall down on the field of Independence Stadium with a significant and season ending injury. It is something you never want to see and the fact that it happened the weekend after Justin Rogers suffered the same fate made it seem even more surreal. Marshall went to the hospital and had surgery that night, and the medical report is a fractured fibula and a dislocated ankle. the field, it was pretty clear from the first series that it was going to be a tough night for Marshall. When he was targeted passes were underthrown. Even the screens were off target and it was a night it was either going to be a screen or a deep jump ball. After the game, I felt he was still the best pure talent I saw this weekend. He's a big receiver, capable of explosive plays, and this injury is merely a speed bump. He will graduate in December and while Texas A&M, Alabama, Florida State, LSU, and Texas are his top five, the feel I got was LSU. ***************Wide receivers had a particularly strong weekend for me.La'Vontae Shenault had the catch of the weekend with his leaping TD in the back of the endzone against Denton Guyer. He is not as fluid an athlete as Marshall, but he is big and athletic and he makes plays when it counts. That TD reception gave DeSoto a 14-6 lead and helped propel the Eagles to a 42-13 win.Shennault may be the biggest prospect of that game, but 2018 WR Jamal Brown stole the show on offense and special teams with his dynamic runs. Think KD Nixon light. That's not meant to be a knock on Brown, he's just not as thick as Nixon was, but he's definitely just as capable of making the same type of explosive plays. He finished with three touchdowns and 119 yards receiving on 5 receptions. 2019 WR Bryon Hanspard is another size-challenged prospect but his speed was quick to standout. He averaged 35 yards a reception. Bishop Dunne's Marquez Beason was the most dynamic guy I saw this weekend. His change of direction and acceleration were unmatched. I would like to see a better effort when the ball is not going his way, but when the ball is in his hands he makes a minimum of two or three guys completely miss. He is currently No 18 in the 2019 Texas Top 75. The Aggies made his top 12, but he and Brian Williams say they will play together in college and there is a lot of Texas Longhorn smoke right now. ************Mark Denton Guyer 2020 DL Grant Mahon (6-3, 260) down as a prospect to watch. Guyer coaches have been high on him since the spring and he was a bright spot for the Wildcats on Thursday night. I mentioned him a few times during that game and I think he has a chance to be a top 30 prospect in the state in his class. He's definitely one of the top pure DLs I've seen in that class. ************Bishop Dunne 2019 S Brian Williams is one guy I wanted to watch closely. He was one of the first 2019s to receive a scholarship offer, and he has been among the top 5 and even No. 1 in the rankings ever since. Last fall against Prestonwood I saw him grab a few INTs and make some physical plays so I have seen him make plays. I've seen him be good, but I was hoping to see a little more out of him on Saturday. He had a tough day against Brentwood Academy. He slipped and allowed a first down reception early in the first quarter. He was a bit tentative coming down hill, and he got was on the business end of a TD run. He did have a forced fumble and a fumble recovery late in a tight game, but overall I would say the first game of the year was nnot his best day. That is one ranking I will be taking a good long look at before our next eval meetingAs I mentioned above there seems to be a lot of Texas talk surrounding Beason and Williams and that would be my prediction for both. I also think it is worth mentioning Williams visited Texas twice this summer.

TexAgs Spring Tour: Denton High and Denton Guyer
Today I kicked off my spring tour with a morning stop at Denton High and a quick afternoon stop over at Denton Guyer. Guyer is the home to the prospect with the most recent news involving the Aggies. Offensive Lineman John Lanz (6-4, 290) was in College Station for the Aggies' Friday Night Lights scrimmage, and met with coach Jim Turner. He was also able to tour the campus.The Aggies are showing interest in Lanz as a center, but have not offered. Coach Turner did let Lanz known he plans to stop by Guyer in the spring to watch him. Texas A&M has caught Lanz's attention along with Texas - who also is looking at him at center and has not offered - TCU and Baylor who have both offered.Lanz has received nine scholarship offers in total and has been busy making the rounds. The weekend after his trip to College Station he was at Oklahoma State, and this Friday he will make his way to Colorado for a day trip.*****************Guyer is also home to one of my favorite under the radar DTs, Arian Bhat. I still can't figure out why schools like Colorado State, Louisiana Tech, and Tulsa are not all over this guy. The 6-2, 270-pound defender will be a steal for someone. Quarterback Luke Stillwell (6-4, 190) is on the radar of several schools, and will see some traffic this spring. Tight end/H-back Josh Nicholson (6-3, 235) is also an intriguing guy to watch this spring.In the 2019 class safety Brent Jackson (6-1, 175) caught my attention during their weight lifting session. He is the younger brother of Northwestern signee and all-state selection Bryce Jackson. Down in the 2020 group a couple of names have also emerged for the Wildcats. Defensive tackle Grant Mahon (6-3, 255) is already under the watchful eye of coaches. He is the brother of former Coppell standout Blake Mahon who signed with Baylor in 2014. Running back Kaedric Cobbs (5-9, 200) has moved in from Melissa. He rushed for almost 1300 yards and earned district newcomer of the year honors as a freshman in 2016 at Melissa.*************My morning visit to Denton High also opened my eyes to a few prospects.Perhaps the most intriguing guy I saw today is 2018 sleeper Brandon Coleman. At 6-foot-5, 265-pounds, Coleman is very young in the game and he played JV last fall due to a transfer. He moved to Denton High from Germany, and even though he was on JV he made a quick impression on the Denton High coaching staff. played basketball growing up - and JV this past season - and it shows in his footwork. He also has a big frame and long arms which are sure to draw attention this spring along with his flexibility.Since he does not have any varsity tape right now schools are taking a wait and see approach. However, do not be surprised if schools are drawn to his upside. Staying in the 2018 class, safety Anthony Tony-Itoyah is already attracting attention. He plans to visit Houston and he has received interest from SMU, Texas, and Oklahoma. He checks in at 6-2, 180, has clocked a 4.6 forty, recorded a 38-inch vertical, and earned first-team all-district honors in 2016. ********************A candidate to turn the most heads this spring is 2019 receiver Isaiah Wofford. He passes the eyeball test at 6-foot-2 and 175 pounds and he earned district newcomer of the year honors this past fall. Nearly half of his 23 reception went for touchdowns (11) last fall, and with a 4.6 forty and a 38-inch vertical he is already drawing attention from Notre Dame. He also said he has always been interested in Texas A&M. 2019 class also include OC Jaden Oberkrom (6-2, 255) and LB Kyle Williamson (6-2, 200) who are both worth watching over the next few years.The upperclassmen are getting the attention right now and deservedly so, but the 2020 class is already generating some buzz.Outside linebacker Isaac Broades (6-2, 195) already has the look with long arms and plenty of room for weight. Quarterback Landry Kinne (6-0, 170) is the son of Denton assistant head coach Gary Joe Kinne. Athlete Marcellus Lockley (6-0, 170) is a standout in football, basketball, and baseball, and plays cornerback and receiver for the Broncos. Wide receiver Hunter Hope (6-0, 180) has turned some heads early on as well. Then there is lineman Devin Freeman (6-1, 270). He could project to either offense or defense at this time and wears a size 18 shoe.

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)

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)
