Miscellaneous recruiting notes - Thursday afternoon
- I'll start with a little more intel that I've been able to gather on Demond Demas. A lot of folks rightly applauded his decision to stay at Tomball to continue to focus on his academic prowess. After speaking with a pair of sources close to the situation, it sounds like Demas' grades and test scores have drastically improved since he made the move back in January. From what I was told, his academic standing while at North Forest was not all that great and was going to make qualifying a tough task. In fact, the exact words were, "he would have likely had to go FCS or junior college." It's still a little up in the air as to whether or not he'll be able to early enroll, but the move to Tomball has undoubtedly made that a more realistic opportunity. - An east Texas source of mine is growing in confidence with the Ags' chances at landing 2021 Texarkana Pleasant Grove DL Marcus Burris. He had an extensive conversation with Terry Price early this week. Price also spent time talking with Burris' teammate Landon Jackson. Landing those two in 2021 would be a big deal, and you'd have to give the Aggies the edge to do just that based on all available intel.- Our recruiting team continues to get good vibes on the pursuit of Folsom (CA) RB Daniyel Ngata. While he did push his decision back date, it hasn't changed his affinity for Jay Graham, Jimbo Fisher, and company, and it most definitely hasn't stopped the A&M staff from continuing to go all out in their pursuit of him. - At safety, the Aggies have stayed after East St Louis (IL) standout Antonio Johnson. A&M staffers remain in consistent contact with their long time target daily, and they've built a great relationship with AJ's inner circle. Based on what we've been told, we believe Johnson is inching in on a decision, as well. I like where the Aggies' sit as August comes to a close. I don't think this one lasts too far into the season either. Outside of Johnson, the Aggies continue to work on Bowling Green (KY) S Vito Tisdale in an effort to get him to campus. I also don't believe they'll completely throw in the towel for Xavion Alford. I'd bet they continue to check on him throughout the fall. - I reached out to a couple of contacts in Florida, and it sounds like it's no secret that everyone is playing catch up to A&M for highly touted DE Donell Harris. The Aggies have some great ties to south Florida prospects because of Jimbo and staff's time in the Sunshine State. I still think there will be some twist and turns along the way, but if you were forced to make wagers on where Donnell would land today, the smart money would be in College Station.

Defensive back note/update
A&M continues to work on Shadow Creek S Xavion Alford. The highly touted defensive back has spoken with Mike Elko who, as I said yesterday, has played a really pivotal role for A&M in this one. From what I know, the conversation with Jimbo Fisher is still very much scheduled for tonight. I'll see what I can find out later on, but the Aggie staff isn't throwing in the towel by any means. I'd still pick Texas based on late momentum, but it wouldn't surprise me to see this one go either way.

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.

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.”
