Strengths

The first commit in this 2019 class is probably the one I have seen play the most in person. Between four games and three camps I have a really good sense of what I have seen from him. First of all his athleticism is for real and translates to the games very well. His shuttle and vertical would be in the top ten for wide receivers at the NFL combine last year. He is able to get behind defensive backs and safeties consistently with very solid speed and elite quickness. Secondly he is very productive. Every time I saw him play he was constantly putting up good numbers and his stats have been very good over these past two years. Just constantly making plays is something he thrives at. He also got much better this season at making tough catches (in traffic and jump balls) something he struggled with a little bit a year ago. He also does very well in the open field, making people miss and turning short gains into big plays this is something the Bears are continuing to try to get better at.

Weaknesses

He has to become a better and more consistent route runner. He has elite quickness but does not run great routes all of the time like he should be. I think a part of it is that he can get away with it in high school competition but at camps it does not work as well. This is where he can and will grow the most as a football player at Baylor in my opinion. He needs to work on his hands as well. I mentioned he got better at the tough catches in his strengths but there is still work to be done. At camps he struggled with catching ball cleanly with his hands especially when covered. He has a tendency to catch with his body far too often.

How I see him fitting in at Baylor

I think Jaylen will mostly play outside and I think he will get in four games this season. But I am hoping he takes a redshirt year to get himself better prepared for when he is really needed. Ellis is going to be a very good player at Baylor when his time is called for consistent playing time which I think will happen by his second year on campus.

Rating Explained

His athleticism, offers, film, and stats all point to him being a four star caliber player. It is the little nuances of the position that he needs to work on but he has a chance to be very special. I see a lot of potential with him.

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.”
