Key notes from Recruiting Country

  • There’s probably going to be two or three more recruits join the class by July 5th. We anticipated a big summer, and that was before Fadil Diggs
     
  • A&M will have ten to twelve recruits by camp probably. And some are coming out of nowhere like Deondre Jackson‍. I don’t think Jackson committing changes your plans at running back. I don’t think it changes your plans for Devon Achane. Achane sees himself as a running back.
     
  • For corner, the focus is more narrow. The Aggies have four names at the cornerback positions, and I honestly think A&M could get all four. 
     
  • If you take seven to nine corners in the next two classes, you couldn’t blame A&M. You want to be prepared and don’t want to look up and think, “what happens if I lose a corner?”
     
  • I think Isaiah Raikes‍ decision is similar to the Blake Smith‍ decision: it’s a crucial piece to the puzzle.
     
  • If Isaiah lived in Texas, he is probably the #1 big defensive tackle in the state. His one problem is he lacks some wingspan, but he’s enormous. He’ll likely reshape his body once he gets here and he’ll take a year to do that.
     
  • You also have to think about the interior as it is. Bobby Brown probably only has two years left. You are going to have to replenish for the coming years.
     
  • I’d lean toward A&M getting Achane, but one thing is they have to get him on campus. It’s not anyone’s fault, but he’s just been very busy with track. I’d say we’re a long way away from an Achane decision.
     
  • Kourt Williams II‍, Noah Sewell‍, Jackson Bratton‍, Choe Bryant-Strother‍, Derrick Wingo, Kenneth Phillips‍ are all potential linebacker recruits. I’d say A&M offers seven or eight and they end up getting three.
     
  • There will be some people who are wired to worry and complain, and I could see Kourt Williams shutting it down and going to Ohio State this weekend. But Jimbo is doing everything he can.
     
  • My gut tells me that A&M will get Haynes King‍, but they’ll have to scratch and claw to keep him from Tennessee.
     
  • My favorite thing about covering the kids is the relationships you build. You get to know a lot of them, and I want them to make the best decision or themselves. If that’s A&M, then that’s great but if it’s not then that’s fine too.
     
  • I’d say that we know about 99% of the time if someone has silently committed. That may be two hours before or two months before.
