Texas Tech visit: “We met up with coach Paul (Randolph), he’s a really good coach. After that, we went and toured the weight room which was really nice. Talked to the strength and conditioning coach, and after that we went and talked to coach (Matt) Wells. We had a really good conversation, my family and I bonded with coach Wells.
After that we did a really great photoshoot. Former Tascosa defensive end, just like me, L.B. Moore was with us. We had a lot of fun, it was a great experience.”
Why he wanted to visit Tech: “This was my first time to meet the Tech coaches because of what happened with COVID-19 and the dead period.
I really wanted to get down here and see Tech for myself, especially because my sister came down for an unofficial visit a week ago. She was telling me how nice it was and I wanted to see it for myself.”
Message from the Tech coaches: “They just told me they’re gonna keep recruiting me. They’re really confident about the program coming up and they told me that I could really change their program and that they’re gonna keep fighting for me.”
