Sentimental favorites in this class.....

Posted: 1/26/2012 1:08 PM

Sentimental favorites in this class..... 


Reginald Davis' story is probably the favorite in this category......

But you have to admire both Conner Groom for walking on and then Chase Robison for turning down Tenn.-- supposedly the team he admired growing up...

I also like Quinton White-- his twitter handle is "hardworkpaysoff" or something like that. Not sure if he'll do anything, but I also admire Austin Stewart-- kid was passed over by D1 schools out of HS in spite of having some pretty good numbers & measurables.  He was on a state championship team and I believe had a big game.

I like JJ Lollar (formerly Bynum) for his story about his mom, also that he's from College Station area and is going to Tech.

forgot about that one!  I think we have some very good prospects for the "bottom" of the class.    Not that there's a sentimental angle, other than he's from Snyder, but I think we got a good one in Keenon Ward.

I'm going with Clayton Nicholas.  I'm always a fan of West TX kids, and Nicholas looks criminally underrated due to the regional biases and being a solid commit for a long time.

Agreed on that.  I think Bynum, Ward and Nicholas are all under rated.

Reginald Davis is the, I guess you could say, recruit I brag on.....we all know his story growing up, his highlight viedo proves that he is one of the most athletic guys in the state, he has all the intangibles to go with that, and the kid is from Tenaha stinking Texas.....plus he was our second or third commit of the season.  Got the ball rolling, and I believe, is a big reason why we were able to hold onto Wheeler.

Micah Awe is my other guy.  This quote just sticks with me, and I wish every player had his attitude...

"I’ve always wanted to have a big Division I school come get me.  I didn’t think it was going to be possible, because I’m undersized, but Texas Tech’s not worried about size or how big a player is. They’re recruiting for leadership and heart.”

Definitely something to be said for those that have heart and desire.  Had great numbers his junior year-- he had pretty good numbers this year.

Whichever Defensive Juco steps up and contributes next year. Our offense will be fine either way.

Tough to top Reginald Davis' story.  He is already pretty amazing no matter what he does on the football field.

And what is the story about Bynum switching his name?  I only kinda sorta heard about it but didn't catch the important details.

Considering the year that we had, this is a very good class.
My favorites are the ones who stand by us, and their commitment.
Last year- there were several last minute, big-time signings.
I don't see that this year.... Do you?
We look 98% finished.

He changed his last name to his mother's maiden name because his father was'nt around to help raise him.  He wanted to change it sooner but she wanted him to keep it until the recruiting process was finished.

Might get that RB out of zona.... He's got all kinds of offers.  If not, I'm guessing we get that DT or other.

Which is very big.  It looks like we are going to hold on to this class. Everyone that had some rumors looks solid now.  We already took some losses with Johnson, Vaitia, and Okafor though. 

So lets hope for some late suprises.  I think we will get a couple and  finish what is a solid class considering where the program and perception is.

Weeler. A top recruit that had all the offers of the big schools. He picked us from the beginning and narrowed it down to us and Baylor (an even smaller school) over the big named schools.

Re: Sentimental favorites in this class..... 


IMHO the top 3 players we appear to have solid are all WRs. Bell, Wheeler and Davis.
Considering the insane WR depth we bring back, wow.

To me this says we will definitely continue passing the ball a lot which I want to see.

We really need Lee Adams, Starts and Delvon Simmons to give us an SEC-like front 4 we can control games with by 2014.

I agree we will be loaded for the immediate future.  When you look a year or two down the road though, they'll be needed.  So despite all the questions about moving people to defense don't be surprised if most of these athlete types (guys like K Ward) actually do stick at WR.

The one I'm curious about most is Reginald Davis.  You gotta figure a guy like that from a place like Tenaha played both sides of the ball.  And he seems to have decent size and the attitude of doing whatever he can to contribute.

I think he looked too natural with the ball in his hands not to be on offense......
