Bullitt Pulls the Trigger

With an impressive list of offers including Notre Dame, Kansas, Oklahoma State, Arizona, and Wisconsin, Naaman Forest safety Terrence Bullitt originally intended to take his time with recruiting to mull things over. However, after talking with the Red Raider coaching staff, the 3-star recruit decided to go ahead and pull the trigger early. RaiderPower.com has the latest...

The Red Raiders made quite an impression on Naaman Forest safety Terrence Bullitt when he visited Lubbock early this summer. Although he had originally planned to take all five of his official visits before making a decision, Bullitt had a change of heart and decided to give his verbal commitment to Texas Tech today.

Ultimately, the chance to contribute early was a big part of Terrence's decision to become a Red Raider.

"They're graduating six safeties, so I would have a really good chance of playing early," Terrence explained. "Texas Tech isn't too far from home and I just really liked it there. The visit I took to Lubbock earlier this summer also helped me to decide."

Bullitt, who will play strong safety for the Red Raiders, feels confident that Texas Tech is a good fit for his skills.

"I think that I'll fit well in the Red Raiders' system. When I talked to the coaches, they said that I was the number one defensive player on the recruiting board."

Because early playing time is important to Terrence, he's doing everything in his power to ensure that he is ready to play in the Big 12.

"I'm going to work on getting stronger and faster and also improve on my man to man coverage. I'm going to try to compete for playing time as a true freshman, but if not I'd be cool with playing as a redshirt freshman."

Although Bullitt's decision came rather quickly, he feels confident that his decision is a good one, stating, "I might take some visits later on in the season, but at the same time, I'm pretty much done with recruiting."
