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.
