Texas Tech Recruiting Roundup, 11/25

Texas Tech's 2016 recruiting class is now at 26.

Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

The Red Raiders gained another commitment last week in Lovejoy OL Bailey Smith and are now at 26 commits for the 2016 class. Smith was offered on 11/18 and turned that right around into a commitment. Texas Tech was Smith's first offer but had been gaining interest from other programs. Standing at 6'5" 300 pounds, Smith has ideal size to play offensive line which is a need of Texas Tech's. His highlights below are from his junior year.

The 2016 class is now at 26 and is a pretty balanced class. Defensive line is the position group with the most commits at 8 which shows you that the coaching staff is trying to improve on a weakness. Jett Duffey is still the lone QB commit and I'm not sure if the Red Raiders will target any others. There's still room to add a few more commits so we'll see what the coaching staff has up their sleeves leading up to National Signing Day.
