A few notes on some top end, out of state defenders
- First, I continue to hear good things about the Aggies standing with New Jersey based DE Fadil Diggs. He's been a huge fan of A&M since his visit in November, and the likelihood of him returning to campus this spring is increasing. I would not be surprised to see him on that Spring Game visitor list. Even if he doesn't make it in for that specific weekend, I'd bet he finds his way to College Station sometime between now and the summer. - I also heard today from a pair of sources that DB Myles Slusher out of Oklahoma is eyeing a trip through Aggieland next weekend. Fast Houston is hosting a tournament in the Katy-Cypress area, and Slusher could stop in to see A&M on the way back home.- It may be nothing, but Bowling Green (KY) safety Vito Tisdale changed his Twitter picture today to an A&M edit. He remains one of the names at the top that keeps circulating the A&M board.- Lastly, according to a West Coast source, the Aggies remain in rather consistent communication with Elias Ricks. It's still considered a long shot, but A&M isn't going to give in. If they could get him to campus, it'd be big news.

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.

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.”
