Texas Tech Recruiting Roundup, 11/25

Texas Tech Monday Presser

The Red Raiders gained another commitment last week in Lovejoy OL Bailey Smith and are now at 26 commits for the 2016 class. Smith was offered on 11/18 and turned that right around into a commitment. Texas Tech was Smith's first offer but had been gaining interest from other programs. Standing at 6'5" 300 pounds, Smith has ideal size to play offensive line which is a need of Texas Tech's. His highlights below are from his junior year.

The 2016 class is now at 26 and is a pretty balanced class. Defensive line is the position group with the most commits at 8 which shows you that the coaching staff is trying to improve on a weakness. Jett Duffey is still the lone QB commit and I'm not sure if the Red Raiders will target any others. There's still room to add a few more commits so we'll see what the coaching staff has up their sleeves leading up to National Signing Day.

why does texas get all the recruits but texas tech and A&M dont get as much or near? | Yahoo Answers

Often it is the coaches or situation that determine where the recruits come from. Usually UM and tOSU have much closer to the same number of recruits from Ohio HS teams. But, with the problems this year, almost all of OSU's recruits are from in-state.
In future years, and with Meyer as coach, as their image improves again, they will probably go back to having closer to as many out of state recruits as local and leave more quality left-overs for UM to recruit from Ohio. Apparently, after a couple of weaker seasons, Texas is down to recruiting almost exclusively in-state also.

How many recruits will Texas Tech lose? | Yahoo Answers

I am a Texas EX Longhorn but married to TT Alumni. From what my husband is saying many are pulling their donations for the new stadium too. Going to be hard to lure players there now.
Sounds to me like another typical case of a rich, big shot buying something for his son that Adam couldn't, and wouldn't, earn on his own. Has Craig stopped to think that since his precious son is the only one complaining about the Texas Tech program, yet most who are, or have been, associated with the program since Adam became a part of it are pointing the finger at Adam that HE could be the problem???…
