This morning, I caught a mention by Coach T about a Junior Day. I recall that UT had held a Junior Day last year and attrracted many of this year's rcruiting class. So I went searching to see if Texas Tech had one. I found an article in SportsDFW from Mar. 27, 2010 about a Texas Tech Junior Day, and Allen High School receiver Jonathan Lee was the big buzz. I could find no earlier mention, but I did see that there are some national Junior Days and also that OU had a Junior Day and that A&M plans one. What is a Junior Day? Is it the same as an "invitation only" combine? The coaches can take times and watch players. Can they make offers? How new is this for Texas Tech? Did Tommy get this started or have we been doing it for years? Just asking. I think we have one scheduled this spring again. Florida State had theirs at the end of January...........Just curious. I wonder how many of the recruits we got this year attended our Junior Day in 2010? Anybody have that?
Here is a paraphrase from SportsDFW in March 2010. "Several football recruits trickled into Jones AT&T Stadium on Friday's practice on the eve of Texas Tech football's Junior Day on Saturday. Junior Day is a way for juniors to get exposure to the Texas Tech football program early in the process."
