This is a quasi-recruiting update on a couple of levels, but first I want to get out a disclaimer.
I don't know if I've formally stated this before, but I'm not a recruiting expert. I've never seen any of the commitments or potential recruits play one down of football, thus I rely on those websites that claim they do know. Much of the list below is based upon the information gathered on the free portion of the subscription sites. If anyone can add anything to any of these players, go ahead and sign up for a free account (it literally takes 10 seconds) and make a comment. This site will thrive if we can get everyone to add their two cents.
In the best news for Red Raider fans, at Eddie Dean's Ranch, 944 South Lamar, Dallas Texas, Coach Mike Leach will be the featured guest speaker for the 2007 Football Recruiting Roundup. As most of you know, this is two days after national signing day and would be a great opportunity to support Texas Tech athletics and have the opportunity to hear what Coach Leach has to say about the new class. Tickets are $25 per person and once I figure out if I have a future court date I'll be in attendance. I received this news via email and you are to call or email to reserve tickets. If you need her contact information then send me an email I'll send you her contact information.
Back to the list. The list below is the list of players who, from what I've been able to gather, are still interested in Tech and then loosely organized by position. Without knowing anything about these young men, at the very least, Tech doesn't seem to have a problem recruiting receivers, or at least getting them to mention Tech as an option. Now, if we could just get kids to do the same on defense (only 9 of the 26 potential commitments are defensive players). No matter, it's still early, so there's no way to tell what's going to happen.
