Elko making big stop today
I've been told A&M defensive coordinator Mike Elko will be in Virginia today to see LB Brandon Smith. Things continue to trend the way of the Nittany Lions.This may be the Ags last shot to make any sort of dent in the Penn St lead.

A pair of LB notes
As many of you saw, Virginia LB Brandon Smith announced via Twitter that he'll make a commitment this month. From what I can gather, the 5 star continues to communicate with Texas A&M. That being said, I believe he ends up in Happy Valley with the key component being the forensic science program and the familiarity with everything at Penn St. He had planned return trip(s) to College Station, even going as far to tell some people he was going to come back for the Clemson game. That still may happen, but a pledge to Penn St would make the job a lot tougher.Another new in state name has popped up on the Aggie radar though, Plano Prestonwood's Solomon Turner. We've heard the staff is interested in seeing his frame and how well he moves. Let's see if they can get him to camp this summer. He plays safety but measures in at north of 6-2 and 200 pounds.

Quick note on Brandon Smith
Still working on tying down an interview with highly touted Virginia LB Brandon Smith, but I have heard back from a few sources - neither of which gave their stamp of assuredness to any school.Perhaps the biggest news that I've gotten though is that Smith is already working on scheduling another trip to A&M. It'll most likely be this summer right before or after the Opening Finals are held in Frisco. He has not ruled out returning for a game either. I continue to hear Penn St will be tough to beat.

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.”
