Texas Tech Recruiting Roundup, 12/16

New, 8 comments

Say hello to the first 2017 WR commit.

Last week Texas Tech gained its 4th commit to its 2017 recruiting class in wide receiver Jalen Reagor. Reagor is the son of former Red Raider great Montae Reagor. The senior Reagor played 9 seasons in the NFL and is currently a coach at Ennis which is pretty funny considering Jalen goes to Waxahacie which is Ennis' cross-county rival.

Jalen Reagor held two offers from SMU and Texas Tech. SMU offered him this past summer, they must've liked what they saw at a camp or 7-on-7 competition because as a sophomore Reagor only had 7 catches. As a junior this season Reagor exploded for 64 catches, 1108 yards and 13 touchdowns. While SMU and Texas Tech are Reagor's only offers I expect a lot more to come his way before he graduates in 2017. With that being said, I really hope Texas Tech is able to hold on to Reagor until 2017. He will be a hot commodity but with his Red Raider ties there's a good chance he'll be committed for good.

The scouting services have Reagor ranked as the following: 24/7: 3-star, Rivals: 3-star, and Scout: 4-star. As you can see, he is a pretty high ranking recruit and is already a 4-star according to Scout. Next season can only improve his stock and we could see Reagor end up being a 4-star across all three sites. Scout has him at 6'0", Rivals at 6'1", and 24/7 has him listed at 5'10". According to his HUDL, Reagor is 6'0" so I'd be leaning towards him being around the 5'10" - 6'0" range. Also, his weight varies from 165 pounds to 175 pounds across the sites.

After watching his highlights, Reagor's skill set reminds me of a Dez Bryant-type of receiver. I mean this as he's not the fastest or most elusive player but he plays physical and runs great routes.  If you think of Dez, he doesn't juke a lot of guys but he's sure-handed and comes down with jump balls more likely than not. Reagor will make a great addition as an outside receiver and will probably add on a little weight his senior year which will be great.

Texas Tech's 2017 class is now at 4 commits with the average ranking of them being 89.85. That's good enough to be the 10th ranked class in the nation according to 24/7. Neither Rivals nor Scout have their 2017 team rankings up yet but I would imagine they'd be similar to 24/7.
