A few Thursday recruiting quick hitters
- Newton DE James Sylvester and some of his teammates are on campus today. It was an impromptu, last minute trip. Sylvester has been pretty silent on the recruiting front lately. It seems like A&M's focus has been on Collins, Umanmielen, and Broughton recently in-state. It'll be interesting to see how things transpire going forward with the southeast Texas pass rusher. - Mike Elko was in to see Shadow Creek S Xavion Alford this week. It sounds like he and Josh Eaton are the two Houston based DB's receiving the most attention from the Aggie staff currently - at least in the prep scene. Obviously, Marco Domio remains a top target in the JUCO ranks. - Two out of state defenders that the Aggies continue to trend in the right direction with are LB Antonio Doyle Jr. (Hazlewood, MO) and DB Antonio Johnson (East St Louis, IL). Jason had an article on Doyle yesterday where he stated his affinity for the Aggies. I will follow that up with info from a source that told me that affinity is being reciprocated from the A&M side. Johnson is a kid that Jimbo Fisher has personally taken an interest in this entire cycle, and if past history is any indication, the Aggies stand a great shot at landing kids that fall into that category.

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.”
