My Three Things
*Not done yet - Maybe I am crazy but I still think there's a realistic possibility the Aggies reel in OL Akinola Ogunbiyi and CB Ryan Watts. I wouldn't say those guys are flipping any time soon, and they may not ever, but I can see them both in Texas A&M's 2020 class when the pen meets the paper.*Momentum building? - Last week in this column I said I thought the Aggies could see the action pick up significantly over the summer months, and I'll go a step further this week. I predict the Aggies to add double digits to the class this summer. I do include Fadil Diggs in that number, so I am saying the Aggies land at least nine more to the class before the end of August. I will also say it is likely at least one of those is not a guy we are talking about right now.*A few spring thoughts from my travels-RB Seth McGowan is as impressive as it gets on and off the field.-Cedar Hill OL Courtland Ford is in for a monster senior season-We knew Denton Ryan's Drew Sanders was an incredible athlete with high potential on defense. He looked locked in on defense when I saw him this spring, and it was scary good. -I had my questions after the Opening Regional, but South Oak Cliff 2021 LB Jai Jones has the look of an SEC ILB this spring.- Kendrick Blackshire's lateral quickness has drawn some questions, but he looked just fine to me the other day. -Duncanville is the deepest team I have seen so far. -Denton Ryan was ahead of schedule last year and looks like a team ready to get over the hump. -Pleasant Grove had the most intense practice pace I've seen this spring.Bonus Thought: There's lot of big time players competing at the state track meet this weekend. Just to name a few there's CB Jaylon Jones (4x100) QB Eli Stowers (high jump), OL Bryce Foster (shot and discus), RB Camar Wheaton (4x100), WR Devon Achane (4x100, 4x200, 200), QB Malik Hornsby (4x100), CB Kitan Crawford (4x100), Billy Bowman Jr (4x200), Aledo and Lancaster's 4x100 teams.

My Three Things
* Seth McGowan is a rare breed - McGowan is a guy I have covered since his freshman year, and I can honestly say he is one of the most impressive guys I have ever covered. On and off the field, the way he carries himself, and the respect he commands. Throw in the high academics - he will graduate among the top in his class - and he reminds me a lot of Brian Williams. I get to see a lot of guys with a lot of truly special football talent, but McGowan is one of those guys I will be telling people about for years to come. From the way he has handled the recruiting process to the growth he has done over the years it is easy to see his future is extremely bright. He has definitely earned a spot on my all-time favorite list.*So glad to see the Haynes King offer - I know many of you guys have been asking and wondering why the Aggies had not offered and if they ever would. Well, I don't know why it took until now, but the offer is out and I am truly grateful. I will head that way very soon to get a better idea about where the Aggies stand, but one thing is certain, the offer is on the table. By all accounts he is the real deal and the tape reflects it and I have heard more than one high school coach rave about his abilities. I'll keep it short here though and just say there's a reason why he is the No. 1 QB in the TexAgs 2020 rankings. When will things pick up for the Aggies on the recruiting front? - This has been one of the bigger questions in recent weeks and it is one without a definite answer. It looks like we will see what Camden (NJ) DE Fadil Diggs plans to do this weekend, and I know a commitment from him would ease some of those wondering minds. If I was a betting man, I'd say we see things pick up significantly over the summer months.

Wednesday night notes on new offers and more
- Let's start with the biggest piece of upcoming news for the Maroon and White recruiting efforts which would be the Saturday announcement of New Jersey DE Fadil Diggs. One of the top defenders on the entire east coast, Diggs looks set to choose essentially between Texas A&M, Florida, and Penn State this weekend. I do know that he spoke at length with Terry Price today, and Mike Elko was in town to see him yesterday. Strong Aggie vibes continue to emanate from this one. - Diggs' good friend and fellow DL offer Isaiah Raikes could be viewed in the same light as Fadil in terms of momentum. However, I don't think he'll be coming to a final decision as soon as Diggs. From talking to a source today, last week the feeling was that wherever Diggs chose on Saturday, Raikes would be soon to follow. However, it now looks like the 6-1, 320 pound space eater will take probably two more visits before making a final decision. I'd still call the Aggies more than a major player here. - Keep an eye on a pair of June weekends - the 7th-9th and the 21st-23rd. Those weekends look like they'll be chalk full of visitors. I know commit Josh Bankhead will be in town for his official visit (the only OV he's taking) on the 21st. That first weekend in June looks like it'll be Seth McGowan and Vito Tisdale if he's not off the board to Kentucky at that time. - A&M has offered a pair of DB's recently - one from east Texas and one more JUCO guy. I mentioned Tyler John Tyler product Kitan Crawford about a month ago as a player that had started drawing heavy interest from the coaching staff. The Ags offered yesterday, and Crawford told me tonight that he's working on a getting a visit date set. Crawford recently released a group of top schools that included Texas, Baylor, and Tennessee. The Longhorns are pretty much everyone's pick to land him at the moment. A&M will likely need to act quickly in order to keep him on the board. The other offer went out today to Hutchinson CC DB Art Green. He's a 6-2, 200 pound corner prospect with 18 offers from around the country - Arkansas, Georgia, Nebraska, Louisville, Tennessee, and South Carolina just to name a few. He's originally from Chesterfield, Missouri.- Lastly, the Aggies did indeed move in Longview QB Haynes King. Widely regarded as one of, if not the top signal callers in the class, King is a great fit for Jimbo Fisher's pro style scheme. He was fantastic in the Lobos' state title run last year and was the offensive MVP in the championship game. I've also heard he might be the fastest kid at Longview which speaks volumes to his athleticism. His dad is the head coach for the Lobos. After speaking to a couple of sources in east Texas, it's good that A&M finally jumped in the boat. Arkansas is a big threat here with Jeff Traylor's east Texas roots, but the Hogs will likely take Chandler Morris out of Highland Park. He's Chad Morris' son. King has family ties to Louisiana so LSU is a real threat, but the Tigers would have to cut ties with either TJ Finley or Max Johnson who are both committed to Ed O and company. I'm working to figure out if/when King will visit College Station.

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.”
