Recruiting on the High Seas :: DT Donald Langley

It's been a while since I've done this, in part because I've been lazy, but the other part is that most, if not all of the prior commitments happened quite some time ago (and yes, I need to update the sidebar, I've been lazy).  Texas Tech received a commitment from DT Donald Langley from Copiah-Lincoln Community College (pcrawttu was first with the FanPost).  Let's get to it.

The Measurables:

The Player Speaks:

LAJ's Don Williams spoke with Langley, who will be visiting Arkansas this weekend, and will be making his decision next Wednesday, when certain JUCO players may sign a letter of intent:

"Texas Tech has a great family atmosphere, like a brotherhood," said Langley, who visited campus during Halloween weekend for the Tech-Kansas game. "It felt like the coaches had your best interests at heart and genuinely cared about you."

Langley was originally a signee with Tennessee, but after Phil Fulmer left, so did Langley and I thought this was interesting:

Langley said the Tennessee staff denied his request for a scholarship release, forcing him to transfer to a lower-division school or a junior college before returning to Division I. This season at Copiah-Lincoln, he was named to the Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges all-state team.

He said Tech assistant coach Brian Mitchell contacted him after he left Tennessee.

"When I got to Copiah-Lincoln, luckily for me I kept (Mitchell’s) number," Langley said. "I said, ‘Check me out. Hopefully, the interest is still there.’ He got a hold of me since mid-season, and it’s been all love ever since. Me and coach Mitchell have a great relationship. I hope to do great things with me, coach Mitchell, coach Ruff (McNeill) and coach (Mike) Leach."

The Scouting Report:

Since all of the services are essentially under a pay-wall, the days of getting a free scouting report are long gone.
