BOO YAH! Just a short while ago, KeKe Coutee decided to shut down his recruitment and commit to the Red Raiders over Louisville. The 3-star Athlete becomes the 17th commitment of the class and the 2nd Athlete (along with Johnathan Giles). Here's my review of KeKe Coutee from back in June:

KeKe Coutee was first offered by the Red Raiders back in May of 2013. However, KeKe would commit to Longhorns a month later when the Longhorns offered. Things changed though when Charlie Strong took over, and KeKe decommitted to January, letting teams like the Red Raiders get back in the mix for Coutee. We first knew that the Red Raiders were in contention for Coutee when he camped with Tech in Longview. After that, many predicted that Coutee would end up at Tech. He visited the Lubbock for the Texas game back in November, with many believing he would commit to Tech. However, Louisville came into discussion around that time, and secured a visit from the athlete later in month. At this time, many considered Louisville the favorite. It didn't matter though, as KeKe shut down his recruitment a short while ago and gave the Red Raider's their 17th commitment of the 2015 class.
Now let's a took at what KeKe will bring to the Red Raider football team. KeKe is a versatile player that could play as a Wide Receiver or Cornerback. If he were to be a receiver, he could be used on screens, deep plays or crossing patterns. You could basically place him wherever you wanted him. He can do a multiple of things. KeKe also has killer speed. 247sports list his 40 time as 4.41, but he said back during the summer on twitter that his 40 time was 4.38. If he gets space, then he's off to the races. He reminds he a lot of way Devin Lauderdale plays, and could be a big player like Lauderdale last year.
Tech now has 17 commits of the 2015 class and will likely add around 5-7 more commits before the class is done. Tech still has some good recruits still on the board, like Semisi Uluave, Arhtur McGinnis, and Darrion Daniels, and will likely push hard to get their commitments before National Signing Day next month. Still have a lot of options left for the 2015 class and a bunch of recruits looking at Tech for the 2016 class.
