Texas City linebacker D'Vonta Hinton is now a Texas Tech commit.
Hinton certainly enjoyed the campus, the coaches and Lubbock, but the biggest impact came from the stands.
"I enjoyed the spring game, but the fans. There were a lot of fans for a spring game and they were all into it. They all cheered and everything. It was nice and I liked it there."
Throughout the conversation, Hinton was positive about the fan support. While the fans made an extreme impact, there were a few other factors too.
"Just the atmosphere. I enjoyed the fans. The people were nice. The coaches were nice and they believe in me. And I like the facilities."
Belief goes a long way in Hinton's book. In a recent story, he mentioned disbelief as a motivating factor.
"They all enjoyed me. They said they wanted me to come play for them and they believe in me. They're not worried about my height. They know I can play. They've seen me play on film. They said I have the best inside linebacker film they've seen and they'll give me a chance to play."
Hinton said his next step is to win a state championship. The 5-foot-10 bruising linebacker feels Texas Tech is the spot for him and committing early feels nice.
He did have one more thing to say to the fans of Raiderland.
"I'm glad to be a Red Raider. Guns up!"
