Texas Tech Football Adds 22 Players On National Signing Day
National Signing Day is like Christmas for those die hard college football fans, as teams begin to put together the building blocks of their future. Texas Tech kickstarted its future endeavors by adding 22 players to its roster.
Tech’s offseason class grew to a total of 25, including the three early enrollees from last month. Of those 25 players, more than half are comprised of defensive backs and wide receivers, which shouldn’t come as a surprise. Of those 13 additions, the player that sticks out the most is a late addition in Nigel Bethel II, a speedy corner out of Miami who opted out of playing in his home city. Ian Sadler, arguably the best receiver added, could be a Wes Welker/Danny Amendola-type receiver with a build under six feet and 200 pounds.
As far as quarterbacks go, Tech added Patrick Mahomes, as expected, who should push Davis Webb this offseason.
In all, the class was cut down the middle, as 12 defensive players were added and 13 offensive players were added. This is one of the better classes that the Red Raiders have seen in a long, long time; it’s now up to coach Kingsbury and his staff to hone these young men into collegiate elites.
