BREAKING: Tech football picks up two big commitments on defense

Both defensive backs committed to the Red Raiders today

NCAA Football: Kansas State at Texas Tech Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

Not one but two recruits have pledged their allegiance to Texas Tech today. Defensive backs Brandon Joseph and Alex Hogan have committed today and will be joining the team for the 2019 season.

Both recruits are three-star players, both from south Texas as Hogan is from Lamar High School in the Houston area and Joseph is from College Station. Joseph recorded 119 tackles and 7 interceptions in his junior year at College Station. He chose Tech over Northwestern and Arizona. Joseph kicked off the day with his commitment at noon.

Hogan is a former teammate of current Texas Tech freshman running back Ta’Zhawn Henry. He totaled 26 tackles and returned both a punt and kick for a touchdown. He chose Tech over Colorado, Iowa State, and Memphis. He committed an hour after Joseph at 1 o’clock.

Both of these players will join a defensive backfield coached by one of the best in the business, David Gibbs. These two run the total of commits in the class of 2019 to 15! We are all very excited they chose us over the competition.
