BREAKING: Texas Tech Adds a 2016 Commitment

New, 8 comments

The Red Raiders now have another defensive commit.

With National Signing Day only a few days away now, the Red Raiders added a new member to the 2016 class.

Last week I listed Douglas Coleman as potential last minute get for Texas Tech and that has now happened. Coleman flipped his commitment from Tulane after visiting Lubbock this past weekend. Although he was an electric wide receiver in high school it appears that Coleman will play corner in college. The addition of Coleman is great since Neiman Armstrong decommitted earlier this week. Armstrong was one of the few defensive back commits for the 2016 class. Below is what I mentioned last week regarding Coleman and his Hudl highlight tape.

Douglas Coleman | 6'1", 175 lbs | Athlete WR/DB

Douglas Coleman is a late target that Texas Tech has its eyes firmly locked on. It may have been with the help of new RB coach Jabbar Juluke who came from Louisiana Tech. According to 24/7, Texas Tech is pursuing Coleman as a corner back. As a wide receiver Coleman had 62 catches for 1,482 yards and 15 touchdowns in his senior season. Last week Coleman visited Tulane and committed a day after his visit. On 1/25 Texas Tech extended an offer to Coleman after showing a lot of interest in him over the past few weeks. It looks like Coleman is sit to visit Lubbock this coming weekend so keep an eye out on him potentially flipping his commitment to the Red Raiders.
