Possible Red Raiders (Part 1)

Here are some possible recruits Texas Tech is looking at the football team.

Andre Ross: DE (Navarro CC - Corsicana, TX)

Measurables: 6'4", 225 lbs, weak side DE, not ranked by 247sports and ESPN

Andre Ross was originally a recruit in the 2011 class, considering TCU, Houston, Baylor and Texas A&M. Even more interesting to me, he was recruited as a WR coming out of high school. According to Rivals, he didn't seem to get an offer from any of the schools, which is maybe why he ended up going to Navarro CC. I looked at his Film a little bit and noticed that he does have power and speed, but seems to have not that many moves to use (bull rush may be his only one). Hopfully if we can snag him in, the "bros" can coach him up to be a good DE.

Right now, its looks like those damn aggies are in the lead for him, with us, TCU, OU and OSU behind them.

KD Cannon: WR (Mount Pleasant HS - Mount Pleasant, TX)

Measurables: 5-11??? , 165 lbs, Wide Out, ranked 96 by 247sports / 84 by ESPN / and 4-stars by Rivals

This kid looks like an explosive firecracker. His size seems to be around 5'11", but every site I've been too has said something different. Kid is from East, Texas and did attend the Texas Tech spring game last month. Patrick Mahomes is currently trying to recruit is kid, along with alumi like Wes Welker. He recently finished 9th in the 4A 100m dash with a 10.66, so he is indeed fast. I have nothing bad so say about this Kid really (see for yourself), he plays fast, big, and feels like I'm playing Madden when I see him play.

Right now, Baylor seems to have the advantage over him, but Tech is not that close behind.

Derrick Dixon: S (Skyline HS - Dallas, TX)

Measurables: 5'8", 185 lbs, Safety, ranked 88 by 247sports / NR by ESPN / and 3-stars by Rivals

He is a little small for his position, sure, but he makes plays when they need to be made. Constantly throughout his film, I saw him grab INTs and FF from opponents and making plays in key situations. He visited on Junior Day along with fellow Skyline members Ty Barret (OL) and Victor Evans (DE), and was impressed with Lubbock and the coaching staff. He is listed as a safety, but I believe if Texas Tech can grab him, he will ultimately be a slot CB.

Right now, we are fighting for lead with Baylor (why are they trying to jack our #style man)

I will be posting more recruits throughout the week (there is only so much I can do at school with these passing periods).
