Around the SEC: A roundup of the latest recruiting news from the Southeast
Recruiting throughout the nation's toughest conference continues to heat up as prospects trim their lists and give pledges. With that in mind, our own Jason Howell runs down the headlines of the biggest recruiting news in the Southeastern Conference.

My Three Things
1. QB has been interesting to watch for me. The Aggies have not extended a lot of offers, and they have taken a deliberate approach to offering. They continue to pursue former commitment Grant Gunnell. I thought if the Aggies got Ryan Hilinski on campus they could jump up to the top of his list, but he opted for South Carolina after a few visits to Columbia. Last night San Bernardino (CA) Cajon QB Jayden Daniels picked up an offer. He's a dual-threat talent with some nice size and a live arm. The Aggies were able to sign Jeremiah Martin from the same high school so the coaches know their way around the program. I have not had a chance to catch up with Daniels yet, but I get a feeling the Aggies have a chance to be a legitimate player in this one. 2. I cannot wait for Under Armour Camp in Dallas on Sunday. Commitments Kameron Brown, Demani Richardson, and Brian Williams are expected to be in attendance, and there are several others with offers from Arkansas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas in the 2019, 2020, and 2021 classes. There should be plenty of interviews, pics from the day, and action to report from Sunday. It is going to be a good time and I will be on the scene. 3. There has been a lot of talk about recruiting momentum, and I think we could start to see things pick up soon. It will be interesting to see what Braedon Mowry does tomorrow, but I like the Aggies chances in this one. That would be a pretty big domino and it could lead to a few more big dominoes in the future. I'm not going to say it is all going to happen all at once, but believe it or not Texas A&M's recruiting momentum remains very strong.

Late Tuesday night recruiting update
-I was told tonight that Braedon Mowry had a very productive, extensive conversation with Terry Price today. -A source out West tells me that California QB Ryan Hilinski may be close to shutting things down, and I hear the Aggies cross division rival South Carolina is the leader. -A Louisiana contact told me tonight that Southern Lab LB Christian Harris and ATH Makiya Tongue have spoken highly of the Aggies recently. Of the two, my guy felt like Harris was the more likely of the pair to end up out of state. I've been told Tongue wants to play wide receiver while many view him as a defensive player. -I think we have sort of glossed over how highly the staff thinks of Nnamdi Adim-Madumere. He's been getting the hard sell from Jimbo Fisher and Tim Brewster. Should the Aggies land him, we continue to hear it'd go a long way with Jeffery Carter in Aledo. -Look for Starkville (MS) LB and LSU commit Zach Edwards to make a visit to A&M soon. -Up front, I feel comfortable adding highly touted Connecticut OL Jack Stewart to next week's visitor list. I said last week that he's been really receptive to Jim Turner and Lee Grimes, and it sounds like he's made plans to be in College Station for the spring game. -I mentioned Tyrone Brown as an emerging linebacker prospect last month, and I've heard he's going to get a strong look this spring. -A new DB offer went out earlier tonight to Edna Karr (LA) standout Devin Bush. He currently holds offers from just about every power program in the country, and folks in the Bayou believe he'll stay home and play for the Tigers.

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.”
