Last year Jah’mius Ramsey became the highest ranked recruit in Texas Tech history when he committed to the Red Raiders. Now it looks like his former teammate at Duncanville High School will be joining him as the next highest rated recruit in Texas Tech history. Micah Peavy announced his commitment to Chris Beard’s squad this morning, which marks yet another huge win for Beard on the recruiting trail over the last year.
Peavy is a 6-7 wing with a versatile skillset and a great knack for scoring. He (along with the aforementioned Ramsey) led Duncanville to the 2019 6A championship this past March. Peavy was named the most valuable player of the championship game after scoring 22 points and adding 13 rebounds, a stat-line that greatly showcases his scoring ability and supreme versatility.
Peavy gradually improved his profile over the last year, picking up offers from programs such as Michigan, Oregon, and Texas after showing off in various camps and the AAU circuit. Texas Tech has been going after Peavy for over a year, as his offer came in the middle of the 2019 recruiting cycle and his first unofficial visit came on October 19th. It’s clear that Micah was one of the top priorities for this Tech coaching staff, and he provides a foundational piece to build the 2020 recruiting class around.
Peavy joins fellow four star forward Chibuzo Agbo as the two commits in the 2020 recruiting class. The 2020 class might only need two recruits with only two seniors on the roster (T.J. Holyfield and Chris Clarke), which means getting a player like Peavy to fill one of those holes is tremendous towards ensuring next year’s roster has the top level talent to counter what will still be a very young team.
Peavy’s commitment is a huge win for the basketball program, and the excitement level continues to grow with the season starting in just one day. The future is bright in Lubbock with Chris Beard at the helm, and Micah Peavy is a big reason why.
