Tech Lands Two Speed Demons
It has been a great couple of days for the Texas Tech Red Raiders in the streets of Houston.
First, Tavares Garner, a 6-foot-0, 170-pound athlete from Manvel pulled the trigger on a commitment and got the ball rolling for the 2013 class.
Garner is a versatile athlete who will play in the defensive backfield in college. He helped Manvel to a 15-1 record as a junior in 2011.
Garner is reporting a 4.38 40-yard dash and has been clocked at 10.5 in the 100-meter dash, so he is bringing real speed to the college game and has a knack for locking down half of the field.
Then, the news got even better for the Red Raiders when Devin Lauderdale, a 5-foot-10, 170-pound wide receiver announced his intentions to play in Lubbock.
Lauderdale is a true prize, who like Garner reports top-tier speed. He is listed with a 10.6 100-meter dash time, but is also very scary in space.
Lauderdale selected Texas Tech over reported verbal offers from Baylor, Colorado, Texas A&M and Notre Dame
I was just having some shits and giggles on their way out the door during football season.Says the tool that changed his profile to Aggy's opponent each week. Pretty sad when you are obsessed with Aggy.
You went and dug up an old Texas Tech thread to post some weak recruiting sauce in April.
You're clearly not obsessed.
Clearly you're not obsessed.
Tech has UT, OU, Baylor and West Virginia all at home this year.Injuries played a key role in Texas Techís underwhelming 5-7 season a year ago. In particular, the Red Raiders backfield was decimated when leading rusher Eric Stephens and primary backup DeAndre Washington both went down with separate season-ending ligament tears in their knee.
The good news for TTU, however, is that both running backs should be good enough to go for the fall. Coach Tommy Tuberville said as much about Stephens in January and Washington (pictured) told RedRaiderSports on Friday heís close to full strength again.
ďRight now itís about 80, 85 percent,Ē Washington said of his knee. ďIím moving lateral and doing a lot of cutting. I havenít gone all out yet, but itís coming along. I should be ready for the season.
ďIt was a blow, but the way I look at it was it was a minor setback. Everything happens for a reason. Iím just looking to bounce back from it and trying to make the most of it. Iíll be 120 (percent).Ē
Receiver Alex Torres (ACL) should also be back in time for the start of the season. Torres, incidentally, suffered his injury against Missouri as well.
My expectation at this point with this talent and this schedule is 9 wins.
I think Tubs seat will get pretty hot if they win less than 8.
he had better not miss the season because of this shit.There's little more frustrating to me in sports than wasted potential. It happens for various reasons, but bad decisions off the field is often the worst example.
If you're a frequent reader of the blog, you know how much potential I see in Texas Tech receiver Darrin Moore.
Last year, some of that potential was held back by injuries after Moore hauled in 21 catches for 339 yards and four touchdowns in the first two games of 2011.
Now, he's driven himself into a new hurdle.
Texas Tech has suspended wide receiver Darrin Moore from the football team after his April arrest on a drunken-driving charge.
Athletic department spokesman Blayne Beal confirmed to The Associated Press on Tuesday reports of Moore's suspension.
The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reports police reports show Moore was arrested April 13 after a Lubbock police officer observed him driving erratically. He remains free on $1,000 bond.
Jason Howell covers recruiting in the state of Texas for Rivals.com. He said that Kingsbury will immediately bring a boost to the recruiting efforts of the Red Raiders.
"He was a recruit to the school and he played there so he knows all of the attractive things about the program," Howell said. "He will not need to fake it because he was sold on going to Lubbock and he can sell kids on going to Lubbock.
"More than that is that it isn't going to be the stepping-stone job that some other people may look at it as ? he will not be looking to move on after a couple of years. It is a great fit for him and for the school."
Texas Tech has 17 commitments for its Class of 2013 and that currently ranks ninth in the 10-team Big 12. It also ranks No. 55 nationally, which would be the program's lowest-rated class since Rivals.com began tracking recruiting classes with the Class of 2002 --Kingsbury's last as a player.
Level said that the hire has been met with near universal approval.
"Facebook, Twitter, all of that stuff has been buzzing," he said. "People are really busting at the seams to have him back."
Tevin Broussard one of the top JUCO safetys chooses UTSA over Texas Tech. Haha.
Lets just use this topic as the A&M recruiting topic.
