Aggie 247 / Brian Perroni / National Top-100 S Kaine Williams postpones commitment

 

 

 

Spoiler

National Top-100 S Kaine Williams postpones commitment

Brian Perroni

One of the highest-rated prospects in the state of Louisiana - Marrero John Ehret safety Kaine Williams - was set to make his college decision on Monday evening.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound defender, ranked as the No. 100 overall prospect in the national according to the industry-generated 247Sports composite, was choosing between a trio of SEC West teams in Alabama, LSU and Texas A&M.

However, Williams has now pushed his decision back to an unspecified date in the future. Instead of announcing a commitment at 8 p.m. Central, he will reveal his final three teams at 2 p.m. Central.

LSU had been the Crystal Ball favorite for the athletic defender but, on Sunday, some of those changed to A&M. Alabama was also a team that seemingly had some momentum with Williams. However, he says he is not ready to make a decision just yet.


Kaine ”K5IVE” Williams
@kwilliams5_
Due to some circumstances I wont be committing but ill be dropping my final 3 at 2:00pm‼️🙏🏾

144
9:55 AM - Mar 23, 2020

Williams has been to Aggieland before and he made his way to town during spring ball a year ago. He has been in contact with the Aggie staff ever since and has remained high on A&M as well.

Williams has been a very frequent visitor to LSU the past two years, though. He was just in Baton Rouge prior to the NCAA-mandated dead period due to the coronavirus.

With an announcement of a top three coming Monday, Williams will take a big step towards narrowing down his 24-team scholarship offer list.

“I really have like a top two or top three colleges," Williams said earlier this month.

At 6-foot-2, 205 pounds, Williams is rated the No. 4 safety and the No. 100 overall player in the country, per the industry-generated 247Sports Composite Rankings.

Here's what 247Sports analyst Gabe Brooks said about Williams brings to the field as he got rolling with his high school career in New Orleans.

"Big-framed safety with good height and plenty of space to continue adding bulk in college. Instinctive in coverage. Patrols a lot of territory at the back end. Ballhawking safety who's constantly around the ball. Provided terrific production as a sophomore (73 tackles, six interceptions). Dangerous with the ball and becomes a threat to score after the INT. Shows encouraging ability to break on the ball. Flashes impressive closing speed against the run. Generally delivers some pop upon arrival. Needs to improve consistency with tackling technique. Often a shoulder tackler instead of a wrap-up hitter. Will need to continue to fill out to maximize strength and close-quarters power. Owns strong safety frame potential but may better fit center field-type free safety role. Bona fide high-major prospect with long-term potential to reach top half of the NFL Draft."

National top-100 RB Johnson has a top group, A&M in good shape

 

Brian Perroni

Houston Cy-Fair running back LJ Johnson had a big junior campaign for the Bobcats. The national top-100 prospect ran for 1,951 yards and 37 touchdowns while averaging close to 10 yards per carry. Now, Johnson is looking forward to a big senior season.

However, at the moment, football is on hold as the spread of the coronavirus has shut things down. The 5-foot-10, 205-pound junior is still putting in work, though.

"I actually just came back from a workout," the nation's No. 51 overall prospect said on Tuesday afternoon. "I've been working with my trainer and my track coaches. But, for school, they've just been having us do pushups and then, in your backyard or a field, doing sprints and stuff like that. It's basically just do what you can with what you have."

Though the NCAA mandated a dead period at the moment due to the virus, Johnson has remained in contact with a number of college coaches.

"I've been talking to several schools a lot," he said. "I've been talking to A&M pretty much daily. Also Georgia, Oklahoma, LSU, Stanford - those are the main schools I've been talking to."

Texas A&M recently hired a new running backs coach in Tommie Robinson. He was previously at LSU and already has a rapport with Johnson.

"I've talked to him several times," Johnson said of Robinson. "I've talked to coach Robinson and I also talked to Jimbo a couple days ago. They're just saying that I'm on top of their board and they need me in this class. I know they're taking two running backs but they're just saying that since the running back depth is so short, they need me to come in."

Once the recruiting dead period is over, Johnson has one unofficial visit he plans to take to an SEC school.

"Not officials. But the first school I want to hit when everything comes back is Georgia," he said. "I've never been out there, so I want to see it.

"I talk to coach (Dell) McGee pretty much mostly and he talks about how they're going to take two backs, how they'll use me and just what the program can do; how many backs they put in the league and stuff like that. They do a good job developing backs."

Though he has not scheduled his official visits yet, Johnson has a good idea as to where several of them will be to.

"Definitely I feel like A&M, Georgia and Oklahoma," he said as to schools that will receive official visits. "I feel like those three for sure, and proboably LSU, but I don't know about that fifth one yet."

With those programs being mentioned as far as officials, the question then becomes if those are his top programs as well. Though things can change, Johnson says that is the case.

"Either A&M, Georgia and Oklahoma or A&M, Georgia and LSU would be my top three right now," he said.

Fatass cubes are Jimbo's specialty. He makes his coaches adapt to what he wants to run, like he did with Trickett, Turner and now Henson. When Jeremy Pruitt was DC at FSU, a booster made a comment to him about how great a job his defense has done. His response was "It's Jimbo's defense".

All the stars have to align for them to go 10-2.  That's their great season and maybe even good for a New Year's Day bowl.  If the season doesn't happen, they will have had a make your own trophy, put it on the wall championship year.

Maybe the answer will be to eliminate nonconference games (probably hurt the small schools too much but it’s a fun thought otherwise) and eliminate schools like aggy padding their win totals against marshmallows. Then they’ll have to root for 6-2 or 7-1.

Tbh I agree if they can't go at least 10-2 after spending 75 million on a coach they should just quit football. Doesn't get easier for them ever than this.

Hattersley's A&M 2021 class prediction 1.0
VIP ByANDREW HATTERSLEY 58 minutes ago
Share
0 Comments

When Texas A&M’s class of 2020 was finished, it was the highest point total for the Aggies in the history of the modern recruiting rankings era. There were multiple five-stars and the Maroon and White showed that it is a national brand, signing players from 14 different states.

Jimbo Fisher and Co. are looking to replicate that magic in the 2021 class.

The Aggies currently have three commitments, all ranked as four-star prospects, and will likely take a full class of 25 once again. With junior college running back Earnest Crownover set to enroll when school starts in August, he will be eligible to play this season but will count toward the 2021 numbers. That means there are 24 spots left.

Things will definitely change between now and Signing Day as, a year ago, there were players that ended up on the Aggie commit list that weren’t really targets at this point in time. However, it is becoming clearer as to which prospects have the most interest in A&M and vice versa.

Today, both recruiting analysts for GigEm247 give a shot at their first predictions for the final A&M class. We will update these throughout the recruiting cycle but, as of now, this is our best guesses as to who will end up signing with A&M in the end.

For GigEm247 analyst Brian Perroni's predictions, CLICK HERE.

QUARTERBACK

(Photo: Brian Perroni, 247Sports)
Denton Guyer QB Eli Stowers

The nation’s No. 7 rated dual-threat quarterback was A&M’s first commitment in the 2021 class and has made multiple trips to College Station since. While it was a bit of a surprise to see A&M offer Flower Mound quarterback Garrett Nussmeier a few weeks ago, Stowers has expressed comfort in the past being part of a two-quarterback class and has developed a close relationship with the Aggie coaching staff. Stowers plans to enroll early and participate in spring ball next year.

RUNNING BACK

(Photo: Brian Perroni, 247Sports)
Cy-Fair RB LJ Johnson

Rated as the top running back in Texas, according to 247Sports, A&M sits near the top of Johnson’s list, however, Jimbo Fisher and Co. will face heavy competition from LSU, Georgia, Oklahoma, Stanford and Texas for the four-star running back but are currently sitting in a good position. Johnson said A&M, Georgia and Oklahoma are a few of the likely schools to receive an official visit, while there is a good chance LSU receives one as well.

Miami Central (Fla.) RB Amari Daniels

Daniels is the only all-purpose back A&M has offered so far and plays for one of the top high school programs in the country. Daniels recently named a top four of A&M, Georgia, Nebraska and Penn State. While no decision is imminent, the Aggies have recently picked up a pair of crystal balls and sit in good shape for the nation’s No. 3 rated all-purpose back.

Kilgore JC RB Earnest Crownover

The junior college running back already committed to the Aggies in early January, however, he did not sign in February as A&M is going to count him towards the 2021 class. Crownover will enroll in Aggieland in August when the fall semester begins. That takes advantage of a loophole that allows him to count towards 2021 since the 2020 class is full, however, he will still be able to play this upcoming season.

WIDE RECEIVER

(Photo: Brian Perroni, 247Sports)
North Shore WR Shadrach Banks

One of three commits in the 2021 class currently for A&M, Banks remains solid in his commitment to the Aggies. The four-star receiver is coming off a frustrating year missing part of the year with a broken foot before suffering another setback in the first round of the playoffs. This time it was an ankle injury that ended his season.

Banks will have another opportunity to help North Shore reach yet another state title game before I expect him to head off to A&M.

East St. Louis (IL) WR Keontez Lewis

A&M could go in a couple different directions for their second receiver spot but I would not lose sight of Keontez Lewis, who is the teammate of Aggie early enrollee Antonio Johnson. A&M has been one of a number of programs to show interest in him and A&M has had some success in that region in recent years.

While he may not be among the most highly rated receivers in the 2021 class, he has a lot of upside as Midwest recruiting analyst Allen Trieu notes as well: “He has nice hands and he is really skilled. He’s a really good route runner and has sure hands. He has some pretty solid track times so where he’s pegged as this possession guy, I think he has a little more upside than that.”

TIGHT END

(Photo: Jeremy Clark , 247Sports)
Grandview TE/DE Dametrious Crownover

Crownover is ranked as a tight end, but the 6-foot-6, 235-pound junior is being recruited to A&M as both a tight end and defensive end. Having his older brother already on the commitment list bodes well for the Aggies, who were in a strong position even before that.

Given the family ties and A&M being in pursuit of him for quite a while, I like the Aggies to end up with the younger Crownover as well.

Frisco Independence TE Elijah Arroyo

A&M could go a lot of directions at the tight end position but Arroyo, who was the first in-state tight end offer that tight ends coach James Coley extended, is a name to keep an eye on. Arroyo was not able to make it on campus for A&M’s Super Bowl recruiting event but will likely look to visit once the dead period is lifted after also taking visits to a couple other spots including SMU, TCU and Auburn.

OFFENSIVE LINE
Trey Zuhn
(Photo: Brian Perroni, 247Sports)
Fossil Ridge (CO) Trey Zuhn

Texas A&M landed one commitment during its Super Bowl party earlier this year and that came from Zuhn. The four-star offensive tackle was born in College Station and still has family there now.

Now residing in Colorado, Zuhn is solid in his commitment to the Aggies.

Richmond Foster OT Reuben Fatheree

The four-star offensive tackle has taken multiple trips to College Station, including right before National Signing Day where he spent the day with offensive line coach Josh Henson. While it would have beneficial for A&M to get him back in town before the dead period, A&M remains in good shape for him. Baylor, LSU and Oklahoma are a couple other schools to keep an eye on as well.

Fatheree does not have a timeline for when he hopes to make a decision, but I am sticking with my crystal ball pick to A&M for the Foster product to stay close to home.

Butler C.C OT Javonne Shepherd

A&M has pursued Shepherd aggressively on a pair of occasions and will likely try once again if he is able to graduate from Butler in time to be part of the 2021 class. Offensive line remains a big need for A&M and adding a player like Shepherd would certainly help.

Shepherd will have three years left to play three and if he is able to take care of what he needs to at Butler I like him to end up as part of the A&M class.

Katy Taylor OG Bryce Foster

This is going to be a battle for the Aggie legacy, who has an older brother that played for A&M and comes from an Aggie family, with Texas and Oklahoma firmly in the mix as well.

The Aggies are currently the crystal ball favorite with a pair of selections while Texas and Oklahoma each hold one as well. Given the family ties to A&M I will give the slight edge to A&M but this will be a fight to end up with Foster.

DEFENSIVE END

(Photo: Mike Roach, 247Sports)
Pleasant Grove WDE Landon Jackson

A&M was set to receive the four-star pass rushers first official visit the weekend of April 18, which was set to be the spring game. While that date does fall after the dead period, it remains to be seen if he will still go ahead with that date.

Defensive ends coach Terry Price has done a good job developing a strong relationship with Jackson. While Texas, LSU, Alabama, Ohio State and others are in the mix, I think eventually the Aggie legacy ends up at A&M, who were the first to offer the 6-foot-6, 240-pound defender who’s dad was a walk-on basketball player for the Aggies.

Pleasant Grove SDE Marcus Burris

Texas A&M and Texas are also locked in a battle for Burris who would prefer to stay closer to home. Much like Jackson, Burris is also high on A&M and has developed a similarly good relationship with Price. The four-star defender was not able to make it to A&M’s Super Bowl party earlier this year, but has been on campus plenty of times and has a good relationship with the coaching staff.

The Aggies sit in a good position for Burris, but Texas did make a strong impression on him during a visit earlier this year to Austin where the Longhorns outlined some changes to its defensive principles.

Burris does not have a timeline but could commit at any time although he might opt to wait until after the dead period to take visits to Texas and A&M before making a decision.

National Christian Academy (MD) SDE Monkell Goodwine

The four-star pass rusher is one of the most sought-after defenders in the 2021 class. He is listed as a defensive end but could end up playing multiple positions along the line at the next level including inside at defensive tackle.

Texas A&M received an unofficial visit from the East coast standout back in mid-November and raved about the visit after saying then that A&M would be in his top group. A&M has a couple of things working in their favor including Goodwine’s teammate and Joshuah Moten signing with A&M along with the presence of area recruiter Elijah Robinson.

Robinson has proven to be a huge asset for A&M in recent cycles as it relates to closing on big targets and the Aggies have a good chance of winning another battle with Goodwine.

Northeast (PA) WDE Elijah Jeudy

Texas A&M was one of the first schools to offer the 6-foot-3, 233-pound four-star defender and he has been high on the Aggies since. Just like with Goodwine, Robinson also holds a good relationship with Robinson and while a couple schools like Penn State, Alabama, Georgia, LSU are also in the mix, A&M is well positioned with Philadelphia defender.

DEFENSIVE TACKLE

(Photo: Brian Dohn, 247Sports)
Bergen Catholic (NJ) DT Tywone Malone

A&M had a lot of success in South Jersey in the 2020 class and will look to do the same in the northern part of the state this year. The 6-foot-3.5, 300-pound defensive tackle visited Aggieland during this past season and has listed A&M as one of his top four schools along with Ohio State, Rutgers and Ole Miss.

Robinson is once again the weapon here that I think will ultimately make the difference as to why Malone ends up picking the Aggies.

Westlake Village (CA) DT Victory Vaka

A&M has not hosted the four-star defensive tackle on campus yet but will do so later this year when Vaka heads to campus for an official visit in early November.

Although Vaka has not taken a visit to A&M, he has constantly kept A&M among his top schools which is a testament to the relationship he has developed with Robinson.

Although if he were to make a decision right now, A&M would probably not be the choice, the Aggies will have their chance to make an impression on Vaka when he visits Aggieland later this year for the first time. Given the four-star defender has included A&M twice in his top five without even taking a visit speaks to the relationships he has with the staff and the Aggies remain a real threat to land him.

LINEBACKER

(Photo: 247Sports)
Chaminade-Madonna Prep (Fla.) OLB Terrence Lewis

The top-ranked linebacker, according to the 247Sports Composite, previously listed A&M along with Florida and Nebraska as the three schools he was highest on. Working in A&M’s favor is his relationship with national top-100 defensive end Donell Harris, who signed with the Maroon and White in December.

It is going to be another battle to pry the five-star defender away from Florida, but the Aggies have a real shot at doing so given the success Fisher and his staff have had in the region in recent years. Lewis has strong relationships both with players and coaches and I like A&M to eventually end up with him.

Fort Bend Bush LB Kenneth Phillips III

After suffering a serious injury not long before signing day last year, Phillips did not end up signing with A&M and will instead do so as part of the 2021 class. This was a decision that was beneficial for both Phillips and A&M as it saved the Fort Bend linebacker from losing a year while rehabbing and allowed A&M one more spot in the 2020 class.

After committing to A&M in July 2019, I like Phillips to end up in the 2021 class and join Lewis as the two linebacker commits.

CORNERBACK
Tony Grimes
(Photo: Andrew Ivins, 247Sports)
Princess Anne (VA) CB Tony Grimes

Arguably one of the most important targets in the 2021 class for A&M, the Aggies have some work still to do as it relates to the five-star cornerback.

The departure of Linguist was a bit of a blow, but Grimes still has a good relationship with Jimbo Fisher while TJ Rushing has made him a heavy priority as well. Working in A&M’s favor is that Grimes does not plan to make a decision until Dec. 1. While Georgia is a big threat, Grimes has always been very high on Fisher and what he would be able to accomplish at A&M. I like Grimes to end up at A&M largely due to that relationship with Fisher.

Denton Guyer CB Deuce Harmon

A teammate of Stowers, A&M has built a strong relationship with Harmon, who has constantly appreciated the treatment he’s received from the Aggie coaching staff and been a frequent visitor.

Harmon planned to take an official visit to Notre Dame the first week of April but will have to reschedule. I like where A&M stands with Harmon and expect him to eventually end up in the 2021 class and join Stowers, who has been recruiting Harmon to join him in Aggieland.

Lackawanna C.C (PA) CB De'Jahn Warren

A&M has added a junior college cornerback in each of the past two cycles and it would not be a surprise to see them do that once again with Warren.

The nation’s top JUCO cornerback dropped his list down to 11 earlier this month and included A&M on it. Warren told 247Sports earlier this year he views A&M as a good school to develop said he hopes to eventually take a visit to A&M where the Aggies will have their chance to make an impression.

SAFETY

(Photo: 247Sports)
Beggs (Ok.) S Kendal Daniels

While Texas A&M missed out on one of its top safety targets Dakota Mitchell, A&M has also shown a lot of interest in another one of the top safeties in the class.

The Aggies will have to battle Oklahoma and Oklahoma State for Daniels, but A&M sits in a good position for the four-star safety who is a clear priority for the staff.

Miami (Fla.) Northwestern S Kamren Kinchens

The four-star safety was not able to make it to campus for A&M’s Super Bowl party but is high on the Aggies and has a good relationship with A&M analyst Ishmael Aristide. A&M has a couple of aspects playing in its favor along with Aristide as Kinchens is close friends with Harris, while the Aggies have also had a lot of success in recent years in South Florida and Coley should only help in that regard. LSU and Auburn are two big threats for Kinchens who will visit plenty of other programs before deciding

Things will definitely change between now and Signing Day as, a year ago, there were players that ended up on the Aggie commit list that weren’t really targets at this point in time. However, it is becoming clearer as to which prospects have the most interest in A&M and vice versa.

Today, both recruiting analysts for GigEm247 give a shot at their first predictions for the final A&M class. We will update these throughout the recruiting cycle but, as of now, this is our best guesses as to who will end up signing with A&M in the end.

For GigEm247 analyst Brian Perroni's predictions, CLICK HERE.

QUARTERBACK

Denton Guyer QB Eli Stowers

The nation’s No. 7 rated dual-threat quarterback was A&M’s first commitment in the 2021 class and has made multiple trips to College Station since. While it was a bit of a surprise to see A&M offer Flower Mound quarterback Garrett Nussmeier a few weeks ago, Stowers has expressed comfort in the past being part of a two-quarterback class and has developed a close relationship with the Aggie coaching staff. Stowers plans to enroll early and participate in spring ball next year.

RUNNING BACK

(Photo: Brian Perroni, 247Sports)
Cy-Fair RB LJ Johnson

Rated as the top running back in Texas, according to 247Sports, A&M sits near the top of Johnson’s list, however, Jimbo Fisher and Co. will face heavy competition from LSU, Georgia, Oklahoma, Stanford and Texas for the four-star running back but are currently sitting in a good position. Johnson said A&M, Georgia and Oklahoma are a few of the likely schools to receive an official visit, while there is a good chance LSU receives one as well.

Miami Central (Fla.) RB Amari Daniels

Daniels is the only all-purpose back A&M has offered so far and plays for one of the top high school programs in the country. Daniels recently named a top four of A&M, Georgia, Nebraska and Penn State. While no decision is imminent, the Aggies have recently picked up a pair of crystal balls and sit in good shape for the nation’s No. 3 rated all-purpose back.

Kilgore JC RB Earnest Crownover

The junior college running back already committed to the Aggies in early January, however, he did not sign in February as A&M is going to count him towards the 2021 class. Crownover will enroll in Aggieland in August when the fall semester begins. That takes advantage of a loophole that allows him to count towards 2021 since the 2020 class is full, however, he will still be able to play this upcoming season.

WIDE RECEIVER

North Shore WR Shadrach Banks

One of three commits in the 2021 class currently for A&M, Banks remains solid in his commitment to the Aggies. The four-star receiver is coming off a frustrating year missing part of the year with a broken foot before suffering another setback in the first round of the playoffs. This time it was an ankle injury that ended his season.

Banks will have another opportunity to help North Shore reach yet another state title game before I expect him to head off to A&M.

East St. Louis (IL) WR Keontez Lewis

A&M could go in a couple different directions for their second receiver spot but I would not lose sight of Keontez Lewis, who is the teammate of Aggie early enrollee Antonio Johnson. A&M has been one of a number of programs to show interest in him and A&M has had some success in that region in recent years.

While he may not be among the most highly rated receivers in the 2021 class, he has a lot of upside as Midwest recruiting analyst Allen Trieu notes as well: “He has nice hands and he is really skilled. He’s a really good route runner and has sure hands. He has some pretty solid track times so where he’s pegged as this possession guy, I think he has a little more upside than that.”

TIGHT END

(Photo: Jeremy Clark , 247Sports)
Grandview TE/DE Dametrious Crownover

Crownover is ranked as a tight end, but the 6-foot-6, 235-pound junior is being recruited to A&M as both a tight end and defensive end. Having his older brother already on the commitment list bodes well for the Aggies, who were in a strong position even before that.

Given the family ties and A&M being in pursuit of him for quite a while, I like the Aggies to end up with the younger Crownover as well.

Frisco Independence TE Elijah Arroyo

A&M could go a lot of directions at the tight end position but Arroyo, who was the first in-state tight end offer that tight ends coach James Coley extended, is a name to keep an eye on. Arroyo was not able to make it on campus for A&M’s Super Bowl recruiting event but will likely look to visit once the dead period is lifted after also taking visits to a couple other spots including SMU, TCU and Auburn.

OFFENSIVE LINE
Trey Zuhn

Fossil Ridge (CO) Trey Zuhn

Texas A&M landed one commitment during its Super Bowl party earlier this year and that came from Zuhn. The four-star offensive tackle was born in College Station and still has family there now.

Now residing in Colorado, Zuhn is solid in his commitment to the Aggies.

Richmond Foster OT Reuben Fatheree

The four-star offensive tackle has taken multiple trips to College Station, including right before National Signing Day where he spent the day with offensive line coach Josh Henson. While it would have beneficial for A&M to get him back in town before the dead period, A&M remains in good shape for him. Baylor, LSU and Oklahoma are a couple other schools to keep an eye on as well.

Fatheree does not have a timeline for when he hopes to make a decision, but I am sticking with my crystal ball pick to A&M for the Foster product to stay close to home.

Butler C.C OT Javonne Shepherd

A&M has pursued Shepherd aggressively on a pair of occasions and will likely try once again if he is able to graduate from Butler in time to be part of the 2021 class. Offensive line remains a big need for A&M and adding a player like Shepherd would certainly help.

Shepherd will have three years left to play three and if he is able to take care of what he needs to at Butler I like him to end up as part of the A&M class.

Katy Taylor OG Bryce Foster

This is going to be a battle for the Aggie legacy, who has an older brother that played for A&M and comes from an Aggie family, with Texas and Oklahoma firmly in the mix as well.

The Aggies are currently the crystal ball favorite with a pair of selections while Texas and Oklahoma each hold one as well. Given the family ties to A&M I will give the slight edge to A&M but this will be a fight to end up with Foster.

DEFENSIVE END

(Photo: Mike Roach, 247Sports)
Pleasant Grove WDE Landon Jackson

A&M was set to receive the four-star pass rushers first official visit the weekend of April 18, which was set to be the spring game. While that date does fall after the dead period, it remains to be seen if he will still go ahead with that date.

Defensive ends coach Terry Price has done a good job developing a strong relationship with Jackson. While Texas, LSU, Alabama, Ohio State and others are in the mix, I think eventually the Aggie legacy ends up at A&M, who were the first to offer the 6-foot-6, 240-pound defender who’s dad was a walk-on basketball player for the Aggies.

Pleasant Grove SDE Marcus Burris

Texas A&M and Texas are also locked in a battle for Burris who would prefer to stay closer to home. Much like Jackson, Burris is also high on A&M and has developed a similarly good relationship with Price. The four-star defender was not able to make it to A&M’s Super Bowl party earlier this year, but has been on campus plenty of times and has a good relationship with the coaching staff.

The Aggies sit in a good position for Burris, but Texas did make a strong impression on him during a visit earlier this year to Austin where the Longhorns outlined some changes to its defensive principles.

Burris does not have a timeline but could commit at any time although he might opt to wait until after the dead period to take visits to Texas and A&M before making a decision.

National Christian Academy (MD) SDE Monkell Goodwine

The four-star pass rusher is one of the most sought-after defenders in the 2021 class. He is listed as a defensive end but could end up playing multiple positions along the line at the next level including inside at defensive tackle.

Texas A&M received an unofficial visit from the East coast standout back in mid-November and raved about the visit after saying then that A&M would be in his top group. A&M has a couple of things working in their favor including Goodwine’s teammate and Joshuah Moten signing with A&M along with the presence of area recruiter Elijah Robinson.

Robinson has proven to be a huge asset for A&M in recent cycles as it relates to closing on big targets and the Aggies have a good chance of winning another battle with Goodwine.

Northeast (PA) WDE Elijah Jeudy

Texas A&M was one of the first schools to offer the 6-foot-3, 233-pound four-star defender and he has been high on the Aggies since. Just like with Goodwine, Robinson also holds a good relationship with Robinson and while a couple schools like Penn State, Alabama, Georgia, LSU are also in the mix, A&M is well positioned with Philadelphia defender.

DEFENSIVE TACKLE

(Photo: Brian Dohn, 247Sports)
Bergen Catholic (NJ) DT Tywone Malone

A&M had a lot of success in South Jersey in the 2020 class and will look to do the same in the northern part of the state this year. The 6-foot-3.5, 300-pound defensive tackle visited Aggieland during this past season and has listed A&M as one of his top four schools along with Ohio State, Rutgers and Ole Miss.

Robinson is once again the weapon here that I think will ultimately make the difference as to why Malone ends up picking the Aggies.

Westlake Village (CA) DT Victory Vaka

A&M has not hosted the four-star defensive tackle on campus yet but will do so later this year when Vaka heads to campus for an official visit in early November.

Although Vaka has not taken a visit to A&M, he has constantly kept A&M among his top schools which is a testament to the relationship he has developed with Robinson.

Although if he were to make a decision right now, A&M would probably not be the choice, the Aggies will have their chance to make an impression on Vaka when he visits Aggieland later this year for the first time. Given the four-star defender has included A&M twice in his top five without even taking a visit speaks to the relationships he has with the staff and the Aggies remain a real threat to land him.

LINEBACKER

(Photo: 247Sports)
Chaminade-Madonna Prep (Fla.) OLB Terrence Lewis

The top-ranked linebacker, according to the 247Sports Composite, previously listed A&M along with Florida and Nebraska as the three schools he was highest on. Working in A&M’s favor is his relationship with national top-100 defensive end Donell Harris, who signed with the Maroon and White in December.

It is going to be another battle to pry the five-star defender away from Florida, but the Aggies have a real shot at doing so given the success Fisher and his staff have had in the region in recent years. Lewis has strong relationships both with players and coaches and I like A&M to eventually end up with him.

Fort Bend Bush LB Kenneth Phillips III

After suffering a serious injury not long before signing day last year, Phillips did not end up signing with A&M and will instead do so as part of the 2021 class. This was a decision that was beneficial for both Phillips and A&M as it saved the Fort Bend linebacker from losing a year while rehabbing and allowed A&M one more spot in the 2020 class.

After committing to A&M in July 2019, I like Phillips to end up in the 2021 class and join Lewis as the two linebacker commits.

CORNERBACK
Tony Grimes

Princess Anne (VA) CB Tony Grimes

Arguably one of the most important targets in the 2021 class for A&M, the Aggies have some work still to do as it relates to the five-star cornerback.

The departure of Linguist was a bit of a blow, but Grimes still has a good relationship with Jimbo Fisher while TJ Rushing has made him a heavy priority as well. Working in A&M’s favor is that Grimes does not plan to make a decision until Dec. 1. While Georgia is a big threat, Grimes has always been very high on Fisher and what he would be able to accomplish at A&M. I like Grimes to end up at A&M largely due to that relationship with Fisher.

Denton Guyer CB Deuce Harmon

A teammate of Stowers, A&M has built a strong relationship with Harmon, who has constantly appreciated the treatment he’s received from the Aggie coaching staff and been a frequent visitor.

Harmon planned to take an official visit to Notre Dame the first week of April but will have to reschedule. I like where A&M stands with Harmon and expect him to eventually end up in the 2021 class and join Stowers, who has been recruiting Harmon to join him in Aggieland.

Lackawanna C.C (PA) CB De'Jahn Warren

A&M has added a junior college cornerback in each of the past two cycles and it would not be a surprise to see them do that once again with Warren.

The nation’s top JUCO cornerback dropped his list down to 11 earlier this month and included A&M on it. Warren told 247Sports earlier this year he views A&M as a good school to develop said he hopes to eventually take a visit to A&M where the Aggies will have their chance to make an impression.

SAFETY

(Photo: 247Sports)
Beggs (Ok.) S Kendal Daniels

While Texas A&M missed out on one of its top safety targets Dakota Mitchell, A&M has also shown a lot of interest in another one of the top safeties in the class.

The Aggies will have to battle Oklahoma and Oklahoma State for Daniels, but A&M sits in a good position for the four-star safety who is a clear priority for the staff.

Miami (Fla.) Northwestern S Kamren Kinchens

The four-star safety was not able to make it to campus for A&M’s Super Bowl party but is high on the Aggies and has a good relationship with A&M analyst Ishmael Aristide. A&M has a couple of aspects playing in its favor along with Aristide as Kinchens is close friends with Harris, while the Aggies have also had a lot of success in recent years in South Florida and Coley should only help in that regard. LSU and Auburn are two big threats for Kinchens who will visit plenty of other programs before deciding

 

The Arroyo one is delicious - well he ditched the aggy event he was invited to, but we offered early so lets go ahead and put him in the class.

Man, I hadn't noticed how dogshit their in-state recruiting was. They're trying to fill virtually their entire class from bidding wars in STL, South Florida and the Northeast Corridor. Good luck with that.

Attrition’s gonna continue to be a bitch for them. Idk the exact number, but they’ve signed 50+ in their last two classes, so they’re going to have to take some small classes the next two years and when that’s combined with all their transfers from the big 2019 and 2020 classes, they’re gonna have some serious roster holes.

Lulz saw this comment on Crownover ( the TE ).

With what we already have I think you take him and Crownover and call it a day. We have the luxury of taking a kid like crownover and seeing if he can get a fire lit under his **** at that point. Really strange when you compare the two Crownover’s film, one plays with a huge chip on his shoulder and the other looks like he just woke up from a nap

LAMO. They still want Shepherd after his flaky ass recruitment, threatening to assault a coach and then flunking out with a >1.0 GPA?

I really don’t understand the G rating asterisks on the aggy boards. Is “ass” really considered a bad word? And is it spelled with 4 letters now?

Have you seen any tackles on their campus? Me neither.
