Texas Tech Flips Houston Commit

Texas Tech steals a recruit from the Houston Cougars.

Texas Tech adds to its 2017 recruiting class again, this time with a flip from Houston.

WR Bronson Boyd is now an official Texas Tech commit, following in the footsteps of his mother (an alum) and his coach (Carlos Francis).

Boyd is a tall, rangy wideout, measuring 6'3 while only weighing 185 lbs. Some very big names were looking at him as well, as Boyd held offers from Arizona, Houston, Utah, Miami, and Oregon as well as others before settling on Houston. Less than a week after committing to Houston, he announced his flip via Twitter.

According to Scout, Boyd is a three star prospect, ranking as the #17 receiver in Texas. As always, Kliff might have seen a little more in the receiver's tape, as his Hudl highlights indicate some serious speed. Boyd caught 60 passes for over 1,000 yards and 8 touchdowns as a Junior, and he looks to only get better. Adding some weight to his frame while maintaining his speed would be prudent for Boyd, as it looks like we have a great Z receiver to have in the cupboard once Devin Lauderdale moves on from Texas Tech.
