Insider notes of 4-star QB Malik Hornsby
Focus is now 100% on Fort Bend Marshall QB Malik Hornsby. The staff has been in contact with him and he is receptive and interested. The 6-foot-3, 180-pound prospect has offers from just about everyone around the country. At this point expectations are that CJ Stroud will commit to Ohio State. Update 1:20 pm Friday:I spoke to a person close with Malik just a moment ago:- Malik is currently on an official visit to Purdue- Malik talks about Baylor pretty often and has realized the upswing from the staff in his recruitment- Wants to stay close to home, but not too close to home (Houston)- Very close to his mom which is part of the reason he wants to stay close to home- Strictly wants to play QB- Texas is not on his list anymore because of that even though they'd like to take him at another positon- Florida State is recently off of his list as well.- Has a good relationship with QB coach Coach Glenn Thomas that has been steady for awhile but rest of the staff is starting to get involved.After this conversation I really like Baylor's chances here. We will see what happens.

National Average Rating

The 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 SicEm365 rating. Combining the data provides a rating for each prospect, which is then normalized to fit the SicEm365 Rating 100-point scale.

The intent of this rating is to provide SicEm365 readers with a comprehensive snapshot of how individual prospects rank nationally.

70-79: Solid prospect (Two-star)

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.

Example #1

If the predicted school is Baylor and confidence is set to “High”, then the staff member is saying “I believe that this recruit will ultimately sign with Baylor and I feel very certain about that.”

Example #2

If the predicted school is “Alabama” and confidence is set to “Low,” then the staff member is saying “I believe that this recruit will ultimately sign with Alabama, but I’m not very certain about that.”
