The recruiting momentum picked up from last week’s eight-commitment showing has continued as the Red Raiders gained 2 new verbals for the 2019 class. Here is a quick breakdown of the new commits.
Maverick McIvor is a 6’2” dual-threat QB out of Central High School in San Angelo, Texas. Much like 2018 enrollee Alan Bowman, McIvor has a good arm and shows the ability to throw the deep ball necessary for a QB in an Air Raid offense. While McIvor is listed as the 16th best dual-threat QB in this class according to 247Sports, his film shows he is not scared of staying in the pocket to let plays develop. McIvor threw for 43 touchdowns, ran for 8, and even caught 1 in his junior campaign. He has everything he needs to be a successful QB at the division 1 level, including an outstanding name. He also holds offers from schools like Ole Miss, UNC, ASU and Iowa.
Tony Bradford is a weak-side defensive end out of North Shore High School in Houston, Texas. Bradford often lines up on the interior, but no matter where he is, one thing is for sure: this kid can get after the quarterback. His tape is just non-stop highlights of him breaking up plays in the backfield and clogging up running lanes. Bradford is rated as a 3 star recruit by 247Sports and he holds 15 other offers from schools like Purdue, Arizona, Memphis and Washington State.
These two commits have the potential to be game-changers when they arrive in Lubbock. It is safe to say the 2019 class is coming along quite nicely.
