Texas Tech Adds 4-Star Recruit, Two Former Red Raiders Set To Join Forces
It was an all around good day for Red Raider fans, first and foremost because the Freshman class of 2015 got much stronger with the addition of defensive end Breiden Fehoko from Hawaii and secondly due to the news that former coach Mike Leach will be adding former Red Raider great Graham Harrell to his coaching staff in Pullman.
Fehoko joins an already very strong 2015 class, led by one of the nation’s top recruits in Jarrett Stidham at quarterback. The Red Raiders also received another commitment from 3-star linebacker D’Vonta Hinton on Sunday, bringing the total commit count to six for 2015. Fehoko was absolutely nasty during his junior year, recording 24.5 sacks.
There’s other good news here: the former Red Raider legends Mike Leach and Graham Harrell are set to make a reuniting effort in the form of coaching this season for the Washington State Cougars. In arguably one of the best years for Texas Tech football back in 2008, Leach and Harrell both led a team to the top of the nation, earning a second-place ranking after defeating then #1 Texas here in the Hub, then dismantling a highly-ranked Oklahoma State team the next week. Of course, National Championship hopes were dashed after a complete meltdown in Norman the week after. Either way, Harrell gets to bring his knowledge to Leach’s offense in the form of what will probably be dubbed “quality control”.
It’s a good day for Red Raiders, and who knows what other good news is coming this spring. Stay tuned.
