Recruiting Country: The latest recruiting news surrounding the Maroon & White

TexAgs' recruiting analyst Ryan Brauninger joined TexAgs Radio this morning for another edition of Recruiting Country, highlighting the latest news and notes from the recruiting trail following Texas A&M's winning performance in DFW.



Key notes from Recruiting Country

  • The biggest news that will happen today is that David Hicks‍ is committing at 3:30. I’ve been following him for quite a while. There was a tidal wave of Oklahoma momentum at the end of the summer. If there was going to be a school to get back in the recruitment, it was A&M. He came back-to-back weekends. He skipped homecoming to come watch Miami. I asked him about A&M rotating those defensive linemen, and A&M has done a great job of showing him that on the field. He grew up in Houston. We’ll see what happens today. The overwhelming momentum was Oklahoma. He moved up his date after I talked to him. When he moves up a date, is it because A&M does a good job on those visits or because he loves Oklahoma? Hicks and his family were on a zoom meeting with Jimbo and staff on Monday night. I think A&M has staying power no matter the decision. That’s the same with Hykeem Williams‍, Tony Mitchell‍ and Braylan Shelby‍ , too.
     
  • Zach Chapman‍ is committed to TCU. That’s a kid A&M could go back and look at. A&M is still right there with Johnny Bowens‍. He's taking an official visit to Oregon. A&M is going to rely on kids to flip.
     
  • It makes sense for players in Houston to be Aggies. It’s an easy drive. I’m going to the North Shore on Thursday. You can access Houston easily now. That 2022 class has a huge influence down there. Bryce Foster and Reuben Fatheree are huge names in Houston. A&M did their homework and found those lower-star guys in Houston too. Watching the game the other night, you could see a lot of Houston on offense. 
     
  • I think TJ Shanahan‍ is fine. I think it scared him more than anything. He got leg whipped. It looked bad, and they put him on the cart and went into the tent. He goes and finishes the game. The number one thing that sticks out is attitude. He’s a mean ole dude which is good for an offensive lineman.
     
  • Texas A&M offered Jakoby Banks‍. I don’t know if they’ll go back in on him. We’ll see what happens at wide receiver for the rest of the cycle. He's going to be like Ainias Smith in college. A&M is well established at Fort Bend Marshall.
     
  • North Shore and CE King on Thursday. Both of them have tons of college prospects. A ton of teams are off. On Friday, I’m going to see Montgomery Lake Creek against Montgomery. They have a freshman offensive line, Steve Mckinney’s son, Hunter McKinney‍.

So it sounds like unless we get kids to flip, this class could be really weak.. it will be hard to do that without a Bobby Taylor type in this class.. why can't we get any commits after back to back top 15 wins and a great night atmosphere vs Miami we barely got a bite.. if we get Hicks then I will shut up but until we land a big time guy this class has potential to be one of the worst we have singed in a long long time

Definitely glad we got him. Been an Ag for a long time and we never have played anywhere near this many freshman so I'm hoping that does help. Not doom and gloom but just curious after last year to then go to "relying on flips" like the article mentioned it got my attention.

Fun facts:

From Rivals standings...

We are number 2 behind only Ohio State in average stars per commit.

We are less than 100 points behind Baylol to get to the next rung on the ladder. They have 25 commits. We have,,, wait for it... 12.

Does that mean we would need like two "Just A Guy" recruits to pass them?
