Texas Tech adds DB recruit to 2017 haul

Lost in the baseball madness was the Red Raider defense getting a crucial recruit

Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Texas Tech's Baseball Super Regional would not stop Texas Tech Football from recruiting. The latest commitment to Kliff Kingsbury and the Red Raiders is Adam Beck of George Ranch High School.

As you can see from his Hudl highlight, Beck is raw, but aggressive, exactly the type of defender that David Gibbs has in mind when he goes looking for recruits. Beck was on a state championship level defense, a defense that stifled current Red Raider quarterback of the future Jett Duffey. Beck is tall and rangy, which will aid him in defending in the pass-happy Big XII.

Beck will be one of the "defenders of the future" along with Desmond Smith, another tall, rangy DB. The direction that David Gibbs wants to take this defense is becoming more clear with every single recruit he brings in.
