OFFERS | Northern Illinois, South Alabama, Tennessee and Texas Tech

STATS | On the offensive side of the ball, Madison caught 62 passes for 1,166 yards and 17 touchdowns. From what I can tell, on defense, Madison had 65 tackles, but I'm not sure about any other numbers.

THE PLAYER SPEAKS | Madison has a lengthy Q&A with, who says that he hasn't visited Texas Tech, but will visit Lubbock next month. When asked about what position, he said cornerback:

"They've talked to me about playing cornerback, but there's also the possibility I could play some offense. It's really just a matter of how I fit when get down there."

The answers are short and sweet, so go read the whole thing. Madison also spoke to the DMN:

"I committed to Texas Tech. I really like Coach (Kevin) Curtis and Coach (Mike) Smith. They have a great vision for me. I am excited. They are my favorite. I just want to play there. I spoke with Coach Smith. I asked Coach Curtis last night, if I committed would they accept my commitment? At first Coach Smith asked what my mom had to think about it. He then asked my coach. He said if I wanted to commit without visiting I could. It made his year."

SCOUTING REPORT | It is awesome watching Madison's quarterback as he'll just throw the ball out there and throw it deep and Madison will just go up and get it. It's awesome how many times Madison goes up and gets the ball. Those offensive numbers are plenty impressive, and there's no doubt that if he's this good on offense, but the coaches want him at cornerback, I can't even imagine if he's better suited for that side of the field. Plenty of quickness and speed and Madison runs hard, very hard, even though he's not all that big, he'll run through people and run with some power. He's really fun to watch.

Tevin, welcome to Texas Tech and Git Your Guns Up!

2014 TEXAS TECH FOOTBALL COMMITS | I think I have figured out how to do a table and not make it look awful.
