Texas Tech Recruiting Roundup, 10/14

This week I check out some of our key 2016 recruits' stats for their senior seasons.

As of now, the Red Raiders are still at 24 verbal commits for the 2016 class. O-line commit Emoree Giddens was arrested on vehicle burglary charges this past week which should free up another scholarship and I personally hope it does free up a spot.

Now let's get to some good news, Texas Tech has some recruits who have been killing it so far this year. I'll get you caught up on some of those recruits.

Jett Duffey | 6'0", 175 lbs | Dual-Threat QB

Lake Ridge High School (Mansfield, TX)

24/7: 3-star | Rivals: 3-star | Scout: 3-star

Passing Comp Att Pct Yds TD INT
Jett Duffey 55 96 57.29 867 10 0

Rushing Att Yds Yds/Att TD
Jett Duffey 64 621 9.7 6

The main thing I like seeing from Jett after 6 games is that he's thrown zero interceptions. It means he's making some smart decisions. He's also averaged over 100 yards a game in rushing. Duffey is a true dual-threat who makes big plays. He's led Lake Ridge to a 6-0 start and are poised to make a deep playoff run if he keeps this level of play up.

Da'Leon Ward | 5'11", 180 lbs | Running Back

Skyline High School (Dallas, TX)

24/7: 3-star | Rivals: 3-star | Scout: 3-star

Rushing Att Yds Yds/Att TD
Da'Leon Ward 110 720 6.5 6

Ward is averaging 6.5 yards a carry which is an awesome average. He's also found the endzone 6 times. Along with his rushing, Ward has 13 catches for 86 yards and a touchdown.

T.J. Vasher | 6'5", 180 lbs | Wide Receiver

Rider High School (Wichita Falls, TX)

24/7: 3-star | Rivals: 4-star | Scout: 4-star

Receiving Cat Yds Yds/Cat TD
T.J.Vasher 36 676 18.8 5

Vasher is averaging 6 catches a game and over 100 yards per contest. He sounds like a true Texas Tech receiver in the making. Vasher has the ability to make an immediate impact once he gets to campus much like Tony Brown is doing this year.

Houston Miller | 6'3", 240 lbs | Defensive End

Keller High School (Keller, TX)

24/7: 3-star | Rivals: 3-star | Scout: 3-star

Defense Solo Asst Tot Tckls TFL Sacks
Houston Miller 55 25 80 13 7

Miller has been an absolute beast for Keller. He leads the team in solo tackles, total tackles, tackles for loss, and sacks. He's averaging 13.3 tackles a game through 6 games. If he can keep this up at Tech, great things are coming the Red Raiders way.

The above recruits are some of the more high-profile guys Texas Tech has committed and some of the stronger stats I saw while researching how the 2016 recruits are doing. I'll make sure to provide more updates throughout the year.
