Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury is heading into the final two weekends where Texas Tech can host visitors. Check out the list of players visiting over the next two weekends.

I've really been lacking on the recruiting coverage, but with about a week and a half or so to go, I thought it was high time to try to do some sleuthing and figure out who some of the remaining visitors are. All of this information was largely free, although I did do some Twitter sleuthing that I haven't linked here. Scout, ESPN and 24/7 Sports all have free lists with visitors. If you are a recruiting junkie, then bookmark those links. I wrote this yesterday night and haven't had time to check today, but here are the potential visitors for the next two weekends. The reference at the end to the recruiting service is where I found the information.

1/25/2013
IR Carlos Thompson (5-9/175) | Manvel H.S., TX | ESPN, Scout
IR Devin Lauderdale (5-10/170) | Bellaire H.S., TX | Scout
OG Dionte Savage (6-5/340) | Arizona Western College | ESPN, Scout
OLB Zach Barnes (6-3/225) | Grayson H.S., GA | 247
TE Gary Moore (6-5/215) | Clarksville H.S., TN | Scout

I should note that Lauderdale is a former Texas Tech commit that de-committed after Tuberville left for Cincy. The only guy that is committed is Savage and he's committed to Baylor and would guess that he sticks with the Bears.

ATH Darius Allensworth (5-11/174) | Heritage H.S., CA | ESPN
DT Zelt Minor (6-3/260) | Lamar H.S., TX | Scout
CB Martin Hill (5-11/185) | Pierce C.C., CA | Scout
WR Donald Gage (6-0/175) | Zachary H.S., LA | Scout
CB Dorian Crawford (6-2/200) | Mount San Antonio C.C. | Scout, 247
S Jeremy Tyler (6-0/195) | MLK H.S., GA | 247
OL Joshua Outlaw (6-4/285) | MLK H.S., GA
DE Jacarthy Mack (6-3/205) | MLK H.S., GA
WR/S Demarquis Polite-Bray (6-1/180) | MLK H.S., GA

Notice the four players at teh end of the list are all coming from the same high school in Georgia. They are all pretty highly ranked players, 3-star or so. I find that interesting that Texas Tech might be the one place that can offer them a "package deal" which would be to be able to sign every one of them.

If you've got more players to add to this list, please do so in the comments. Also, please link to the non-subscription based site where you found the information.
