James Sylvester - WDE - just decommitted from TCU


I read yesterday that he decommitted and then immediately backed off and still considered himself a commit. Is this something new today?

Don't think he's been on many people's radar, but we are after a defensive end out of Arizona. Built more like a basketball player right now but has a great frame to work with. He'll be an official visitor for the Alabama game.

I just saw it today so I posted it. I know we were interested before he committed so I through it out there in order to see if y’all knew anything.

I don't think he's a decommit anymore and I don't our staff is pursuing him like they are a bunch of other guys

Here's some info I found on a horn site. It seems to be from Billy, but I can't really say for sure, since I don't have access. I cut and paste the most interesting stuff.


quote:



• Don't look now, but there are suddenly a couple of very real and very exciting options for Mike Elko and Mo Linguist at safety.

Love the odds right now of the Ags landing at least one of these two elite safety targets at some point not too far down the road. Land both plus Josh Eaton and Dontae Manning to go along with Jaylon Jones and Joshuah Moten and you're talking about a top 3-5 DB haul in the country in 2020.

• A&M has as good a chance as teams like LSU, Bama and Georgia at eventually landing Zach Evans?, and the Ags have what I would consider an excellent chance at landing Daniyel Ngata? (we're hearing he's very close) and Devon Achane?. EJ Smith? isn't one to tip his hand, but the son of NFL legend Emmitt Smith is coming off of an outstanding College Station visit, and we're in the middle of seeing Fisher, Jay Graham and the Ags making a furious push for the Dallas-area RB's services. Should be fascinating to see how things play out in the backfield.

• One of the biggest storylines of the weekend had to do with the Ags' skyrocketing up Miami pass-rusher extraordinaire Donell Harris' list... Texas A&M is absolutely positioned as the team to beat for the game-changing edge rusher's services.

It's still very early in the game, but the Aggies also look like a potential front-runner for both 2021 linebacker Terrence Lewis? of Miami powerhouse Northwestern High (where Fisher did plenty of work during his time in Tallahassee) and explosive all-purpose 2021 back Amari Daniels? of Miami's Central HS.

• An interesting way to look at things coming out of a busy weekend of recruiting movement for the Aggies? I'd say it's fair to chart A&M's progress with some of their top remaining targets in two ways. Prospects Jimbo Fisher and Co. probably made up the most ground and made the biggest move with would probably include Miami (FL) DE Donell Harris, East St. Louis (IL) S Antonio Johnson, Shadow Creek S Xavion Alford and Dallas Jesuit RB EJ Smith, in that order. As far as prospects I would have said the Ags already led for entering the weekend and, in some cases, have for some time now, it's safe to say A&M's position was strengthened significantly with guys like Memphis OL Chris Morris?, Aldine MacArthur CB Josh Eaton, FB Marshall RB Devon Achane and Manor DE Princely Umanmielen?. If you're wondering about Zach Evans, I've kind of got the North Shore tailback in his own category. Jimbo Fisher and the Ags are playing the long game with the nation's No. 1-ranked runner, and every exceptional visit like the one this past weekend only increases A&M's chances of reeling in the biggest fish out there.

• Current dream finish in the trenches for the Aggies?

1. Close out Chris Morris on the o-line when he visits Alabama weekend in early October (this one looks more likely than ever).

2. Eventually close out Princely Umanmielen at defensive end, probably sometime this fall (far from done but the Ags appear to be in a very good spot).

3. Pull off the mother of all coups and sign a borderline five-star pass rusher in Donell Harris (it'll be a wild ride until December but a pre-season commit is still very much in play).

4. Overtake and outlast Oklahoma (and whoever else) in the battle for the signature of Athens OT Garrett Hayes?.

The good news? If Signing Day were tomorrow, I believe the three who were at the BBQ on Friday would ink with the Ags.


The Aggies continue to create problems for UT in recruiting, and many believe A&M could grab DT Omari Thomas out of Memphis.

• As we approach the final quarter or so of the 2020 recruiting marathon, there's really just one position that you'd say has to rate as a concern. The Ags are still very much in the hunt for five-star Noah Sewell?, but the Utah product is still thought to be leaning heavily in favor of the Oregon Ducks. Beyond that, we're probably talking about Mike Elko and Bradley Dale Peveto having to rally to find at least one and perhaps even two more LBs to fill the need. A&M did a great job of finding a couple of potential gems in Chris Russell and KeShun Brown down the stretch for the 2019 class, and the Ags may have to do the same this time or the position will undoubtedly be Priority No. 1A and 1B in 2021.

2021 North Shore WR Shadrach Banks is scheduled to announce his commitment on August 1.

• As far as the 2021 class goes, the next domino to fall could still very well be North Shore WR Shadrach Banks?.

• Interesting recruiting sidebar: LSU just landed 2021 DE Landyn Watson? of Hutto, which is the third time in the '20 or '21 cycle that Ed O and the Tigers have taken a front seven recruit from the Lone Star State that the Aggies had not offered (2020's Josh White? and Alec Bryant? are the others). As far as '21 goes, the Ags' in-state focus seems locked in on guys like Tunmise Adeleye? of Katy Tompkins, the Pleasant Grove duo of Landon Jackson? and Marcus Burris?, Denton Ryan's Ja'tavion Sanders, Shemar Turner? of DeSoto and PA Memorial's Jordon Thomas?.

• Okay, I did this last week but, as expected, a lot has transpired on the trail since then so let's do it again today. Here's my slightly updated 'Most likely to sign with A&M list':

1. Josh Eaton
2. Chris Morris
3. Donell Harris
4. Daniyel Ngata
5. Xavion Alford
6. Antonio Johnson
7. Devon Achane
8. Princely Umanmielen
9. Dontae Manning
10. Zach Evans
11. EJ Smith
12. Omari Thomas?

• Finally, Howell wrote a short article about the late addition of Australian punter Nik Constantinou? yesterday and I thought I'd add a couple of notes and thoughts. First and foremost, I had a source tell me that Constantinou isn't 6-0, 190 but is actually 6-3 and nearly 230 pounds. He's a big dude with a very big leg. He'll have four years to play four so won't be able to redshirt next season. However, the Ags felt it was important to have a punter on campus this fall and it's fairly easy to understand why. Ray Guy Award winner Braden Mann is a senior and the Aggies will return a loaded squad in 2020...one capable of making a run at an SEC title and perhaps even more. In other words, getting Mann's hopeful replacement on campus and letting the Australian have a full season to work under the best in the college game while getting acclimated to American football should equal Constantinou being ready to step in and hit the ground running next fall. This is something that's been in the works for quite a while now and Nik is currently working through the red tape in hopes of being here in time for the start of fall camp later this week.

Call me crazy but if we only land one other 5* in this class I'd rather have Sewell over Evans. You can go RBBC with guys like Ngata and Achane in the SEC, getting great play by a inside LB is a game changer for a defense. Add a guy like Lewis next year and the defense will be damn salty in a couple years.

Did Hayes and Thomas come to the Bar B Q? More beef in the trenches would be nice along with Morris.

Landing Sewell would be amazing. I'm glad his OV is for the Bama game so he can see the 12thman at work.

Hate that it doesn't sound like Garrett Hayes is very likely to commit. He is a true tackle, and we have really been leading up on guys who seem like guards to me. Hopefully Morris can play tackle.

Just reading above. He didn't make Luicci's top 12 most likely guys to sign with A&M. While guys like Omari Thomas made the list, who I assumed was a bit of a long shot. I know nothing about Hayes recruitment, sorry if it came off as if I did. I just really think he is a big need.

Was totally confused at first,thought you meant Derrick Harris Jr would mean a almost lock for Terrence Lewis. Was wondering what his pull with a FL recruit would be, Donnel makes a lot more sense.
