Texas Tech's 2016 recruiting class is still sitting at 24 verbal commits and looks to add another commit or two before National Signing Day in February. Since the class is basically already full this allows coaches and staffers to start looking to the future. Just yesterday, the Red Raiders offered a Texas Tech legacy.
Extremely blessed to receive an offer from Texas Tech University! pic.twitter.com/SKLzTE5ECt— Ty Thomas (@ty_thomas20) October 27, 2015
Ty Thomas is the nephew of Texas Tech great, Zach Thomas. Ty is a 3-star safety who currently attends Lubbock-Cooper. Thomas is a junior this year and currently holds two other offers besides Tech, Washington State and East Carolina which both have coaches (Mike Leach and Ruffin McNeill) tied to Texas Tech. Thomas is currently committed to Wazzu but a lot can change over two years.
A local QB is gaining attention
Jaelyn Nolan is gaining a lot of attention as of late. The sophomore is shining at Brownfield. He was rushed into the starting role last year as a freshmen after the starting quarterback got caught up in some criminal activity. Nolan has led Brownfield to a 7-0-1 (Levelland game called with 3 minutes left in 3Q because of lightning) and has racked up some nice stats. As of now, 24/7 is the only service with a rating out for him but they do have him graded as a 90 which is a 4-star recruit. Texas Tech is his only offer at the moment as well which has to bode well for the Red Raiders. Below are his freshmen highlights, he's even better this year.
