Elite 11 Notes and Thoughts, and The Opening preview
I'll just start by saying Elite 11 has not been very action packed, but here's a few thoughts.- Elite 11 wrapped up today. Haynes King was again very impressive. I had one seasoned observer tell me Haynes was without a doubt the top guy in attendance. This is a guy I trust and who has no Texas A&M, Tennessee, or Longview/Haynes King tint. Overall the reviews have been positive with his athleticism and decision making drawing the highest marks. commit TJ Finley ripped one of the best balls I saw all the last two days during 7on7 drills. He put it on a line right over the shoulder of the defender and into the hands of his WR for a TD. I didn't see everything but liked what I saw from him the last two days. Big arm and he was pretty accurate.- Arkansas commit Chandler Morris struggled a little bit during 7on7. He threw two picks to start his 7on7 drill. He did bounce back nicely with a couple of TDsThe Opening Finals begin tomorrow and we will be out there in full force. The Aggies have four commitments who will be in action. WR Demond Demas, WR Troy Omeire, OL Akinola Ogunbiyi, and CB Jaylon Jones will be there.Key targets include RB Zach Evans, RB Sam Adams, DL Vernon Broughton, DL Princely Umanmielen, LB Noah Sewell, LB Kourt Williams II, and CB Ryan Watts. The Aggies are also in on TE Arik Gilbert and DT McKinnley Jackson.2021 OL Donovan Jackson and DT Maason Smith are two of the few 2021s expected to be on hand. The Aggies are very much involved with both.

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.

News, notes, and some quick takes from the Opening Regional in Dallas
Big Impressions- Tommy Brockermeyer was again a standout performer. He has been very good at every stop and the 2021 OL from Fort Worth All Saints has made a strong case as a top five player in the 2021 class. He has been special at the Next Level Athlete Camp, Under Armour, and now the Opening Regional.-It was great to see Drew Sanders work at LB. It was not all crisp and clean, but it was easy to see he is dripping with athleticism. His lateral quickness and change of direction were unmatched plus he's big enough to take on and cover TEs down the field. It also sounds like he's coming around the idea of playing LB on the next level which could lead to good things for the Aggies.-Highland Park QB Chandler Morris was on his game today. He put the ball on the money time after time. He is not the biggest but he was accurate and showed plenty of arm. He took home QB MVP honors and there was no doubt he had the best day of any QB in the bunch.- Jalen Kimber blew the testing out of the water. He won the fastest man contest with a 4.43, he had a 4.0 shuttle, and he had a 40-inch vertical. He was pretty solid in one-on-ones, but man, he was different animal during testing. He also checked in at 6-foot, 170.Recruiting notesDenton Braswell 2021 OL Erick Cade has been high on the Aggies, but he was a big Jim Turner fan and he was sad to see him go. Texas seems to have capitalized on that a bit and Herb Hand is a guy he has really gotten close to. He has not gotten to know coach Henson yet, but I look for that to change. The Aggies remain high on his list, but I would give the edge to Texas right now.Oak Grove (LA) 2020 DT Kenean Caldwell talked very highly of his relationship with coach Peveto and coach Robinson. He plans to visit TCU and Texas A&M soon. He camped in College Station last summer.Hebron 2020 S Darius Snow recently narrowed his list to 13 and the Aggies made the cut. He is working towards a top five, and one school he said he hopes to visit this spring is Texas A&M. He wants to take at least one official visit this spring, but he has not decided where that will be.Duncanville 2020 ATH Ja'Quinden Jackson worked at QB today. He's hoping to schedule some visits in the near future. Texas, LSU, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Texas A&M are showing the most interest and said he texts with them daily. Coach Linguist is leading the Aggies efforts and he mentioned that his confidence stands out. Jesuit 2020 ATH EJ Smith spoke with coach Fisher the other day and he likes the Aggies' style of play. He is playing his cards close to the vest, but the Aggies are one school he talks of highly.Mansfield Timberview CB Jalen Kimber just returned from Texas and most of the buzz surrounding him today had to do with Texas and Notre Dame. He also mentioned Missouri, TCU, Arkansas, and Texas A&M as schools he is closely looking into. Coach Linguist remains in contact for the Aggies. Right now he has plans to visit Arkansas, Notre Dame and Alabama, and he just returned from a visit to Texas.Thoughts on some key prospects-Little Elm 2020 CB Ryan Watts - Very physical. When he pressed, good luck to the WR. Watts also measure in at 6-3, 185 and had a 38-inch vertical. He will visit Texas A&M towards the end of this week.-Lancaster 2020 CB Lorando Johnson speaking of physical he has always been one of the more physical DBs out there and today was more of the same.-Denton Braswell 2021 OL Erick Cade It was an ok day. He passes the eye ball test and he is a big athlete, but he is on the raw side. His hands are absolutely huge.-Jesuit 2020 ATH EJ Smith Great day. He was one of the best WRs out there. Cat quick, and explosive. He showed some great hands throughout the day.A couple of prospects to watch-Frisco Reedy 2020 OL Nathan Anderson also had a very strong day. He checked in at 6-5, 260, and he clocked a 4.2 shuttle. He won most of his reps and he was another one who had a big day last weekend. He's one of the more athletic OL in the 2020 class, bends well, and he has a strong punch. Keep an eye on this guy. He's on the Texas A&M's radar and he has a good relationship with coach Henson. DeSoto 2021 DT Byron Murphy II jumped out to me as the top DL today. He is on the shortside but he is quick and explosive. He's an athletic three and he gave offensive linemen fits all day. His go to move, a spin move, was on point today, and often deployed.

News, notes, thoughts, and other stuff from the UIL State Football Championships
First of all, what a wild and crazy end to what is one of my favorite football weekends of the year. I felt bad for Duncanville, but could not be happier for North Shore. No one deserved to lose that game. It was a fight to the end, and lived up to every bit of the hype. The crazy thing is both of these team are favorites to return next fall.Now let's jump into the whole weekendTop PerformanceATH Jordan Whittington, CueroWhittington was a man on a mission Friday morning. He started the game off hot and he did not let off the gas all day long. He impacted every facet of the game and he broke long standing records. His 28 carries for 334 yards and 5 TDs was a thing of beauty. He tacked on 3 receptions for 47 yards and a TD and he led the team with 8 tackles. He broke Eric Dickerson's 4A State Title game rushing record and tied Dwight Smith's record of 5 rushing TDs in a 4A Title game. He also tied Jonathan Gray's record for rushing yards in a State Title game. He dominated on the big stage and sealed the game with a 20-yard TD run with 2:54 to go in the fourth. He was named Offensive and Defensive of Cuero's 40-28 4A Division I State Championship win over Texarkana Pleasant Grove.Best Game of the Weekend6A Division I State Championship Game - North Shore vs DuncanvilleNorth Shore's 41-36 over Duncanville for the 6A D1 State Championship gets the nod. While we are at it Dematrius Davis' 45-yard Hail Mary TD to AJ Carter as time expired is the play of the game too. This game had it all. There was so much P5 talent on the field. So many big plays. There was back and forth drama. It was a knock down drag out from beginning to end with North Shore making the first big play Ashton Reynold's fumble recovery and TD and the and the last one. What a tremendous effort by everyone involved.Best Play - I just mentioned the North Shore's hail mary. No need to rehash it. It was greatness.Five who improved their ranking (in my mind anyway)ATH Shadrach Banks, GP North Shore - Banks is built like a running back, a big one, but he runs routes and makes catches like a receiver. That is one smooth, fast, and physical guy I have seen in a while. He was a big play waiting to happen. His 9 receptions for 179 yards and 2 TDs and 5 kickoff returns for 138 yards simply does not do the effort justice. I saw a top 5 type of athlete on the field last night.RB Jase McClellan, Aledo - McClellan arrived at AT&T Stadium in a bad mood. He looked upset in warm-ups and he ran that way throughout the game. He ran with anger on Friday night. He shredded the Fort Bend Marshall defense to the tune of 149 yards and 3 TDs on 21 carries. He also had a 22-yard TD reception. McClellan does not have far to move up, but he deserves a bit of a bump after what I saw. He earned offensive player of the game in Aledo's 5 Division 2 Championship win over Fort Bend Marshall.QB Haynes King, Longview - Someone made a play to be named the top 2020 QB in Texas this weekend, his name is Haynes King and he came through in a big way for Longview. It was not perfect, but he showed the full skillset. The arm, the ability to throw with touch and accuracy, toughness, decision making, and he makes big plays in big moments. King completed 16 of 27 passes for 423 yards and 2 TDs. It should also be said, he has performed like this all year. He earned offensive player of the game in Longview's 6A Division 2 Championship win over Beaumont West Brook.RB Darwin Barlow, Newton - The TCU commit rushed for 106 yards and 2 TDs on 24 carries and he had 2 receptions for 35 yards. It was not all about the numbers though. He showed speed, balance, burst and came through with some key gains. He is no. 60 on the 2019 list right now, but he made a case for top 50 in my mind. He took Offensive MVP honors in Newton's 3A Division 2 Championship win over Canadian.ATH Ja'Quinden Jackson, Duncanville - Like I said last week, I am not sure where I play him, but he is the kind of guy you want on your team. He laid it all out there and when Duncanville needed a score in the final minutes he punched it in for his only score of the night. He finished with 18 carries for 226 yards on the ground. He is currently just outside the top 10, but I'll be pushing for him to make that move into the top 10.Welcome to the radarLB Patrick Turner, Dallas Highland Park - The 2021 linebacker finished with 7 tackles, 3.5 TFLs, and 2.5 sacks. He made plays all over the field and is a multi-sport athlete. The college attention has not yet arrived for the 6-2, 215-pound backer, but I have a feeling he will attract a few looks.TE/DE Dametrious Crownover, Grandview - At 6-foot-7 and 230 pounds I see Crownover becoming another athletic OL in the stacked class of 2021. He had the game clinching touchdown as a TE and he had some nice pressure off the edge at DE. The college attention has not come yet, but he is definitely a prospect to watch.OL Savion Byrd, Duncanville - At 6-4, 250, he has the frame to build on and he moves really well. He is physical in the trenches and he plays a key role on one of the top teams in the state. He holds offers from Baylor, Illinois, and SMU.Other Top PerformancesQB Chandler Morris, Highland Park (2020) - 23 of 35 passing, 262 yards, 1 INT, 3 TDs (5A D1 Championship Game Offensive MVP)QB Dematrius Davis, GP North Shore (2021) - 19 of 28 passing, 333 yards, 5 TDs, 8 carries for 89 yards (6A D1 Championship Game Offensive MVP)RB Zach Evans, Galena Park North Shore (2020) - 21 carries for 96 yards and 2 receptions for 14DE Prince Dorbah, Highland Park (2020) - 6 tackles, 4 TFLs, 4 sacks (5A D1 Championship Game Defensive MVP)DE Alec Bryant, Shadow Creek (2020) - 6 tacklesS Xavion Alford, Shadow Creek (2020) - 8 tackles, 1 INTS Chris Thompson, Duncanville (2020) - 7 tackles, 1.5 TFLs, 1 QB hurryATH Josh Foster, Newton - Newton's leading tackler with 9.5 tackles and 2 PBUs. He also played QB. ATH JoJo Earle, Aledo (2021) - 7 carries for 63 yards and 6 receptions for 79 yards and a TD.ATH Devon Achane, Fort Bend Marshall (2020) - 13 carries for 95 yards and 2 receptions for 55 yards and a TD.Closing ThoughtIt was a great weekend all the way around. I saw a lot of heart and soul and all out effort laid out there on that turf. Even when it looked like things might be over for one team or another, a play was made or at the very least attempted. The crowds were loud and the atmosphere was rowdy. All in all it was about as perfect a way to end the 2018 high school football season as one could hope for.

Thoughts from Saturday's Semifinal games at AT&T Stadium
Saturday was an awesome overload of Texas High School football. There was a lot to take in with semifinal match-ups of Denton Ryan/Highland Park, Duncanville/Allen, and Longview/Amarillo Tascosa. It was also a nice little practice round for me in preparation for state championships next week.So what did I think of the action? I got a few things.-Duncanville stepped up in the big moment. My biggest question mark was about how they would respond after being pushed in the final minutes of a game. Well, they answered that one in a big way. The Panthers responded with a fourth down conversion for a TD and a safety on the next Allen possession. I don't know who wins next week between Duncanville and North Shore, but I can tell you this, the Panthers will not back down when they are punched in the mouth. Great win yesterday for Samples and the Panthers, and it sets up what could be an all-time classic match-up for the 6A Div I Championship with North Shore.-While we're on the topic of Duncanville/Allen, Ja'Quinden Jackson just makes big plays. I don't know exactly where to project him as a prospect. Whether he would be better on offense or defense. I don't know, but what I do know is the guy knows how to step into a big moment and make a play when it is needed. His touchdown pass to end the first half was a thing of beauty. Rolling out to his left, throwing on the run to the back corner of the endzone, and hitting his receiver with precision. Then on 4th and 2, in a tie ball game late in the fourth quarter, he stepped up again and ran away from the Allen defense. Jackson has size and speed that translates to a number of positions. He plays with an edge and he shines in big moments. This is the kind of guy every coach wants on their team and it is a reason why so many, including Texas A&M, have put offers on the table. I don't know exactly where to project him, but I do know he can play. -Highland Park 2020 QB Chandler Morris made me open my eyes yesterday. I admit it. I was sleeping on him. He was another Highland Park QB, putting up big numbers in an offense where QBs put up big numbers. Well, he flat out picked apart a very fast and very physical Denton Ryan defense, and it was as impressive as anything I've seen to this point in the season. He threw some darts, and he threw with touch. Then he made plays with his feet. He extended plays and he scored touchdowns. There were a lot of reasons Highland Park won yesterday and the playcalling was tremendous, but Morris showed a lot as a prospect. He was not perfect by any means, but he showed accuracy, mobility, and poise. There is a good reason he already has offers Arkansas, Auburn, Clemson, and Oklahoma, and I look for that offer list to continue to grow. The 2020 QB class is looking very strong. I would say Hudson Card, Malik Hornsby, Ken Seals, Deuce Hogan, Chandler Morris, and Haynes King are at the top of the list right now.-Speaking of Haynes King, his performance Saturday night was a what the gameplan called for. He didn't put up huge numbers, but he made big plays. On a night when the ground game was working, King and the Lobos hammered away. His overall athleticism was the thing that jumped out. The play that really caught my attention was when he chased down a Tascosa player after a blocked PAT. The guy had a big head start and nothing but green ahead before King ended any dreams of an endzone celebration. He not only closed on him and tackled him but he also stripped the ball. -Denton Ryan will be back. The bad news is the Raiders were handed a tough loss yesterday. One that will likely stick with them through the offseason. The good news is they are young. LB/QB Drew Sanders, QB Seth Henigan, WR/CB Billy Bowman Jr, WR/DE Ja'tavion Sanders, RB Emani Bailey, RB Ke'ori Hicks, WR/DE Delshun Neal, and S Tra Smith will all return next fall. Saturday did not go as planned, but I expect for this group to be back better than ever next fall. -In the weekend high school football thread there were a few questions about Marquez Beason and where he was yesterday. He showed up big and played a key role in keeping Theo Wease quiet after his two first half touchdowns. Beason did that with Illinois head coach Lovie Smith in attendance. He will sign with the Illini on Wednesday.-Duncanville 2020 S Chris Thompson is a safety. Yes, he has great size and he made a lot of plays in his new role in Duncanville's D, but make no mistake Thompson is projected to play S on the college level. He also had a nice momentum shifting INT to setup Ja'Quinden Jackson's TD pass at the end of the first half.-A few things that made me smile--Duncanville's swarming defense--Amarillo Tascosa's never say die attitude--Allen's second half comeback--Ja'Quinden Jackson--Longview RB Keilyn Williams (5-5, 145). 17 carries for 127 yards and 2 TDs according to RB Trysten Smith's opening 73-yard TD runAs for recruiting notes, there really were not a lot. Duncanville's Chris Thompson and Ja'Quinden Jackson are the two biggest A&M targets that were there yesterday. They're both focused in on the playoffs and a state championship right now. I would give Texas a little bit of an edge for both right now, but there's still a long way to go with both and the Aggies are very much in the running.
