A pair of LB notes
As many of you saw, Virginia LB Brandon Smith announced via Twitter that he'll make a commitment this month. From what I can gather, the 5 star continues to communicate with Texas A&M. That being said, I believe he ends up in Happy Valley with the key component being the forensic science program and the familiarity with everything at Penn St. He had planned return trip(s) to College Station, even going as far to tell some people he was going to come back for the Clemson game. That still may happen, but a pledge to Penn St would make the job a lot tougher.Another new in state name has popped up on the Aggie radar though, Plano Prestonwood's Solomon Turner. We've heard the staff is interested in seeing his frame and how well he moves. Let's see if they can get him to camp this summer. He plays safety but measures in at north of 6-2 and 200 pounds.

Notes, quotes, tweets, and other Sunday recruiting stuff
I caught up with NaNa Osafo-Mensah today. He is currently in basketball and does not have any visit plans coming up. He named a top 10, but put Michigan in there now. All of them have elite football programs and big time business schools. Earlier this week I said I was hearing Notre Dame and LSU were A&M's biggest competition, and those remain the two other programs I hear the most regarding the Nolan Catholic standout. As for the Aggies, below is what he had to say. "I just love the culture down there and the tradition because A&M is just that special place down in College Station." He will announce his decision on May 19 at Nolan Catholic's spring game. *********Lancaster 2021 WR Majik Rector was in College Station recently and Liucci mentioned him as a prospect who has really caught the coaches eye. Well, know that he definitely has his eye on the Aggies too. The biggest competition at this early point seems to be Oklahoma and Texas. He was at Texas yesterday and the Longhorns also gave him a lot to think about too, but from what I've heard I'd give the Aggies the early edge.**********Some quick notes-Put the name Solomon Turner down on your lists. The guy is a 6-2, 205-pound LB with the frame to get bigger and cover skills. He has an NFL pedigree, and he has been wrecking shop on the camp circuit. He played everywhere from WR to LB to S and combines cover skills and physical play. Osafo-Mensah showed some serious speed on the edge and opened up 1on1s with two big wins over Oklahoma bound 2018 OL Darrell Simpson. Rector is as quick as they come and he continues to shake people up from his slot position. He is small but the quickness and the confidence (he has been competing against D1 athletes for the past two years) is hard to find.-2020 OL Trent Pullen looked the part today at OL/DL camp. He already holds an offer from Baylor, but he will no doubt see that offer list grow considerably. His feet were very nice in addition to his size. OL Jett Duncan of the Woodlands is an interior OL worth watching. Big, stout kid with little bad weight on his frame, and he plays mean.-2019 Killeen DL RaQuan Thompson was easy to spot today. He checks in at about 6-3, 245 and he worked at both DE and DT. He showed a quick first step and won reps on both the interior and on the edge.-2019 Argyle OL Preston Wilson had some nice reps today. He's also another big prospect with light feet, little bad weight, and he is smart. -2020 Lancaster CB Lorando Johnson and 2020 CB Collin Gamble both had solid days. A guy to watch is Plano Prestonwood CB Chase Lowery (5-11, 165) Very good size for a young guy.

Career Stats




6’2, 209 pounds

40-yard dash






Power Throw



Just a good football player. He plays defense, offense, and special teams for his high school and excels at each of them. He shows good explosiveness and speed at the wide receiver position along with a need for contact. Turner is not afraid to run over or through defenders when he gets the ball in his hands. This mentality is why I think he is so solid on defense and why he projects well at the next level. I think he has a good feel for the game as far as positioning goes. He has five interceptions in three years of playing safety and most fo those are just due to being in the right place. Turner is a good tackler as well and appears to be incredibly strong especially against the competition he is facing. I like his size as well at 6’2, 209 he is very versatile. At camp the biggest thing that stood out to me that you don’t get to seen a ton of in games is his coverage at linebacker. Since he plays safety it is hard to learn much about his outlook at other defensive positions. He covered running backs and tight ends very well at camp and looked much quicker than his shuttle would indicate.


Turner’s film is deceptively awesome because of his competition. He is faster, stronger, and bigger than just about everyone he is playing against in TAPPS. He is consistently running by or through people for touchdowns, that won’t happen at the next level. His 4.81 shuttle is not good enough for the safety position so I think he is really only in line for either the WLB or MLB linebacker position. I just don’t know that he is athletic enough to play anywhere else. I worry about his explosiveness with his vertical and shuttle but his 40 time is actually really good for a high school linebacker so that puts my worries to ease a little.

How I see him fitting at Baylor

I see him at either WLB or MLB. He has very good speed for the position and a frame that should be able to easily get him in the 225-235 range. It will take him some time to get adjusted to the position but I think he will contribute early and often on the special teams because like I said he is just a good football player.

SicEm365 Rating


Rating Explained

He is currently an 84 because of the competition he played against, the less than elite athleticism, and because he is being projected at a position that he has not played. Currently his best position is receiver but I do not believe he is good enough to play that at Baylor. On the flip side he plays all over the place and does so much for his team.

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.”
