National Signing Day live thread #19Guns

The Red Raiders look to add to Matt Wells’ first recruiting class

National signing day is here! The past two years have featured less eventful signing days due to the early signing period implemented in 2017, however this year’s signing day still has a lot of intrigue given how coach Matt Wells’ first class has been put together As of now there are 12 players signed with the Red Raiders, and four additional players are committed. Here’s the list of those that have signed with the team already:

OT Trevor Roberson: Wellington, Texas

TE Simon Gonzales: Magnolia, Texas

SDE Gilbert Ibeneme: Pearland, Texas

OT Landon Peterson: Odessa, Texas

TE Travis Koontz: Ventura, California (JC)

DB Alex Hogan: Houston, Texas

WR Trey Cleveland: Arlington, Texas

WR Cameron Cantrell: Whitehouse, Texas

LB Tyrique Matthews: Houston, Texas

LB Bryce Robinson: Sachse, Texas

QB Maverick McIvor: San Angelo, Texas


DE Tony Bradford Jr.: Houston, Texas

The three-star defensive end from Houston will hope to bring the same winning attitude that he brought to the national champion North Shore Mustangs.


DE Quinton Williams: Houston, Texas

We have a bit of a surprise as three-star defensive end Quinton Williams has committed and signed with the program this morning.


P Austin McNamara: Gilbert, Arizona

One of the top punters in the country has officially signed with Texas Tech. Austin McNamara is a big addition to the special teams unit.


RB Dadrion Taylor: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Three-star running back Dadrion Taylor might have been the most underrated player in this Tech recruiting class. The Oklahoma native has now officially signed on as the fourth scholarship running back on the roster.


K Jonathan Garibay: Riverside, CA

Kicker Jonathan Garibay has now committed to the #19Guns squad. He’ll compete with Trey Wolff to start as the placekicker.


Three-star athlete Velton Gardner has decommitted from Texas Tech and will instead be signing with Kansas today. This has been expected by many of us as Gardner never really saw eye to eye with the new coaching staff.

OT Cole Thomas: Seattle, Washington

Head coach Matt Wells was able to convince Seattle tackle Cole Thomas to follow him to Texas Tech. Thomas looked to initially be headed to Utah State on scholarship, but has decided to take a preferred walk-on position with the Red Raider instead.

ATH Alante Brown: Chicago, Illinois

Brown is arguably the big commitment surprise of the day. The three-star wide receiver was highly sought after by Florida State, however Tech OC David Yost was able to reel him in.

Watch out for more in depth coverage of these new additions.
