Thursday night recruiting notes
I've got some quick hitters tonight...-We expect Spring Dekaney CB Marcus Banks to pick someone other than Texas A&M this weekend. If you've been reading Jason's posts, you know this. I don't know how much momentum the Aggie staff has tried to create here, but it seems one of the reasons may be increased belief with Jay Ward out of Georgia. Our recruiting team has learned that Ward has made plans to be in College Station next weekend. -Speaking of next weekend, the official visitor list is quite impressive. Ward joins Javonne Shepherd, Devonta Lee, and Chris Russell as unsigned prospects that Jimbo Fisher and company will host. Kenyon Green will be in town, as well, and possibly Layden Robinson. -Shepherd remains a mysterious follow down the stretch. The thoughts on where he eventually lands vary depending on who you talk to. Based on what we know, I believe Coach Fisher has made it known to Javonne and those around him that he absolutely has a spot in Aggieland if he wants it. We should know more about the Ags' chances on the other side of the visit. -Folks in the know believe Texas A&M is a serious contender for Devonta Lee. I got that vibe off the kid in Orlando earlier this week, but it's good to get it backed up by other sources. The issue here is that final visit to LSU before signing day. We've seen this story often with kids staying on the bayou and playing for the Tigers. Ags will have to absolutely knock that visit out of the park. With the departure of Tyrel Dodson, there's a more clear path to the field for A&M to sell. -I mentioned this on Chris Russell the other day but wanted to reiterate some stuff regarding his recruitment. There are some serious Tennessee ties for Russell - most notably his father who grew a giant Volunteer fan. The dad's favorite player growing up? Current Tenn DB coach Terry Fair. My source on this was pretty plugged in, and he did say he felt "fairly confident" in Tennessee ultimately landing Russell, but he did mention that A&M would be wise to involve Jay Graham into the mix next weekend because the dad was a big fan of Jay's, as well. -Jason mentioned David Ugwoegbu's check in height/weight in San Antonio this week, and he spoke about the Seven Lakes product playing as a stand up LB all week. In talking with Looch tonight, Billy mentioned that Ugwoegbu is actually built similarly to Otaro Alaka coming out of high school. David has mentioned the possibility of coming back to College Station unofficially. Could the Aggies view him as more of a standup guy now that he's shown his ability to be effective there against some of the best HS players in the country? I'd say it's possible. -I had a south Houston source tell me earlier today that should Ft Bend Marshall speedster Devon Achane make a commitment early this spring, it'd undoubtedly be the Aggies. Devon arrived to the state title game a couple weeks back decked out in A&M gear getting off the bus. -Another 2020 prospect in south Houston that's surging with A&M momentum is Shadow Creek S Xavion Alford. Alford has some really good junior tape and has seen the P5 offers come rolling in this winter. He picked up LSU recently. Alford plays for Ro Simon and Fast Houston so he's certainly got some ties to the Aggies should they go ahead and pull the trigger on an offer. Alford is also coached by Texas A&M former student Brad Butler at Shadow Creek.-Lastly, A&M will host the Super Bowl Junior Day event again this year. It was a big hit with the 2019 class, and the recruiting staff will hope it sends the Aggies on their way in 2020.

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.”
