Notes from Members Only-Fast Houston workout
Last night, I traveled down to Houston to watch a group of about 20-30 top prospects from the area work out with Ro Simon one last time before high school football season begins. Here are some of my notes from the event...1. Let's start with the most prevalent news at the moment for Texas A&M fans which involves top safety target Xavion Alford from Shadow Creek. Alford did not participate in the workout last night but did show up to shoot some more pieces for his commitment video. I made a note a couple of days ago that Xavion personally said he was going to push back his commitment date to into the season. However, it now sounds like he just meant he was going to push it back a little bit further into August. When I had spoken to him after the pool party/BBQ, Alford gave the indication off the record that an announcement would likely come sooner rather than later. He told me last night that he still wants to get this done before the season to remove any stress and distractions from his senior season at Shadow Creek. He spoke with Jimbo Fisher on Friday night for quite a while. He and his inner circle also continue to speak with Mike Elko on a consistent basis. Alford told all the media members there that this had come down to a battle between A&M and Texas with Alabama now on the outside looking in. The Longhorns have made a late push, but I'm still sticking with my gut here that the Aggies hold a lead. Now, the main question remains - when does a public decision happen? I'm leaning toward the 7-10 day range as it stands now. If a final decision hasn't been reached yet, it'll likely happen soon. One thing I want to make clear: Alford is an outstanding kid who wants to do as much homework as possible before making a decision. He's looking at a lot of factors here from top to bottom. He's being as thorough as I've seen a kid be leading into a decision. 2. Another often talked about prospect that was out there last night was Aldine MacArthur CB Josh Eaton. Eaton is also closing in on a decision, and it looks like this one is leaning toward the state capitol. The Aggies have continued to stay after other corners, too - scheduling an OV with Jacobe Covington out of Scottsdale (AZ) and making the final list for junior college standout Brian George. I personally think Eaton lands at Texas before the season starts. While I think landing Eaton would help Herman and Co with Alford, I do not think it's a backbreaker for the Aggies by any stretch. I think both kids will make decisions independent from one another. 3. I may have found the next version of Demond Demas last night - at least a young starter kit version of him. 2022 Shadow Creek WR Randy Masters (more affectionately known as Bobo) is an absolute monster. He's already got offers from Vanderbilt and South Carolina. There's no doubt he is about to explode. Freak show of an athlete with a fantastic frame and Demond-like explosiveness. No brainer offer for me. He'll be one of the best players in Texas in that class. Bobo stole the show last night. 4. Another offer worthy 2022 is Port Arthur Memorial CB Jaylon Guilbeau. I've already interviewed/written about Guilbeau before, but he showed he belonged among the best prospects in greater Houston already without any sophomore tape. He and his father spoke extremely highly of Texas A&M and their experience so far with the coaching staff - specifically Terry Price and Bradley Dale Peveto. Guilbeau is really tight with 2021 monster DE Jordon Thomas. Thomas was also out there last night and was the only non-skill prospect at the event. If Thomas tape matches what he's flashed at camps and work outs this summer, he's a top 10 player in Texas without any argument. The kid is a freakshow, and he just now started driving. A&M, Texas, and LSU are the three standing out right now for the pass rusher out of the Golden Triangle. 5. I'll round out the post with some quick hitting observations...- Texas Tech is getting a steal with Lufkin WR Ja'Lynn Polk. He's super smooth. - Klein Oak DB Dwight McGlothern is taking all of his officials out of state and to every corner of the US. - Ft Bend Travis QB Eric Rodriguez is the most underrated QB in Houston. If he goes FCS, he's going to throw for a bajillion yards there. - More 2022 DB names to know include Eric Hemphill III from Brenham, Jaidan Scott from Shadow Creek, and Alejandro Colbert and Jacobe Chester from Ft Bend Ridge Point.- Texas A&M is keeping a close eye on 2021 Katy CB Hunter Washington. I've had multiple Katy sources indicate the Aggies plan on scouting his first few weeks of tape as a junior. He's definitely an offer candidate.

A few Saturday evening notes
The Aggies are hosting a few Louisiana standouts over the next few days. Baton Rouge Madison Prep S Major Burns is part of that group and he has been active on social media since his arrival. He is in town with his family and the word I am hearing is the visit is going very, very well right now. I would not call it a slam dunk that he makes any decisions before leaving town, but whatever happens it looks like the Aggies are putting themselves in a very strong position in this recruitment. Other Louisiana standouts already in town include Baton Rouge University Lab DT and LSU commit Jaquelin Roy, Madison Prep S Joel Williams, and Southern Lab 2021 WR Theodore Knox. I haven't heard as much about the trip for these guys but it sounds like everyone is enjoying themselves.I was out watching some top prospects at a Pylon 7v7 event today and I have a few thoughts for you there too.-Dallas Skyline 2021 WR Quaydarius Davis is one bad dude. I have seen him at a few events now and he leaps out of the crowd. He is going to be a top national recruit and one of the best in the state. He is currently committed to SMU, but I don't think that sticks. He will be in College Station tomorrow for Junior Day. Davis was named offensive MVP after pool play and he was the most explosive playmaker I saw on the field all day.-Davis may have been the best prospect, but Fort Bend Travis 2020 WR Parker Washington was the guy who did the most damage. Using his quickness, precise route running, and sure hands he sliced up defenses throughout the day and proved to be the most unguardable receiver out there. -Lufkin 2020 Ja'lynn Polk also had a very good day. He is long and smooth and made plays all over the field.-Weatherford 2020 QB Ken Seals continues to shine bright. He makes great decisions, he has a quick release, and he puts the ball on the money. He led TrueBuzz to the championship of today's event and TrueBuzz was without several of their top players because of college recruiting events.-A few more guys who caught the eye Dwight McGlothern, Cedrick Pellum, Lorando Johnson. All three will be in College Station tomorrow.-Team Grind is going to be one to watch. They had a younger team out there that hung with the big boys and I got to know a little bit about a few new top 2022s. Mesquite High has a promising future with 6-4, 200-pound WR Darryl Richardson and 6-4, 200-pound LB Maleeyon Winfield. Lancaster has another big, athletic receiver coming down the pipe in Phaizon Wilson (6-4, 200), and Dallas Skyline RB/ATH Qualon Farrar (5-6, 170) looks like a Velton Gardner starter kit. Farrar is the little brother of Oklahoma State signee Kamryn Farrar and he already holds an offer from Kansas.

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.
