All of the information that you'll need as you get ready for National Signing Day, including the lists of current commits, possible targets, transfers and greyshirts.

This is your one stop for all of the information regarding Texas Tech's National Signing Day. It's not a ton of content, but you have links and information on every player that's committed to Texas Tech as well as possible targets on both offense and defense. I've also included Mike Mitchell as the lone transfer from last year as well as the greyshirt coming on board, Joseph Clark.

Class Updates

Last night, Twitter was abuzz as long-time commit DT Courtney Wallace will most likely decide to stay home in Louisiana and most likely sign with Louisiana Tech, where his father played, or Louisiana-Monroe.  I had no idea that Wallace's father played for La.Tech.

As I mentioned yesterday, I think this is a lot more top-heavy class than most people are giving credit and I do think that if Jamile Johnson chooses Texas Tech, then this makes it even more top-heavy.  MikeTTU is predicting that Johnson and Semisi Uluave choose Texas Tech and I think those would be pretty significant.  There was also chatter late last night that Texas Tech possibly offered Blinn CC WR Darrion Landry, who is currently committed to Toledo, but as of this morning, I can't confirm that.

Current Commitments

2015 Greyshirt

2014 Transfer
