More after the jump, including video of Alfredo.
The Player Speaks: LAJ's Don Williams spoke with Alfredo about coming to Texas Tech and said that the fact that Texas Tech runs a similar offense was a big reason:
"We watch film on Texas Tech, and we run the same offense (in high school),’’ he said. "We get everything from them. We pretty much run all the same plays. It’s identical. That’s why I say it’s a perfect fit."
And Alfredo said that he and his brother, fellow Texas Tech commit OL Tony Morales, motivate each other:
"I think it’s really good,’’ Alfredo Morales said. "We motivate each other and stuff on the field to make each other better.’’
Scouting Report: Just like his brother, this video is from Alfredo's sophomore season and Williams article mentions that he's the starting right guard. That's just about the perfect positions for the Morales Twins and fits into what what head coach had previously talked about, which is somewhat smaller linemen at the guard and center positions. Considering this is his sophomore year, he looks awfully polished and very similar to his brother. If Alfredo was this far along as a sophomore year, his first year starting, then I think the future looks bright for Alfredo. In the video, Alfredo is starting at right tackle and I think that he would definitely need to be a bit quicker, I think, and I think he's probably learned to finish each and every play, but he's awfully strong, and that's the one thing that impresses me the most.
Alfredo, welcome to Texas Tech and Git Your Guns Up!
The 2011 Class: Updated with McRoy off the list and added Clark. Won't have time to get to this week's commitments until later in the week, or possibly not until this weekend. I'm tired.
