Fitte was in town along with several other top recruits. Shakeil Lucas, one of Tech's first verbals, was there as was his teammate, Ashton Tyler.
Ashton seemed to have a great time and his father, Kermit Tyler Sr., really enjoyed himself. "I really like what Coach Dooley is doing here," said Mr. Tyler. "Tech is definitely the second biggest program in the state,"
Shakeil Lucas said he was working hard to get Ashton to come with him to Ruston. "I'm working on Ashton," said Shakeil. "I'm trying to get my cousin, Cornelius Lucas, to come up here too." Cornelius Lucas, from Edna Karr, is the tallest player on Tech's board at 6'8". Ashton is not far behind at 6'7".
Cassetti Brown, one of the fastest players in the state was in town. Brown burned up the field this summer when he ran sub 4.4 40 yard dashes at both Tech's camp and at Tulsa's camp.
Two of the top players from East Texas were in attendance. Germad Reed, from Lufkin and Daniel Prior from Henderson were at the game. Both players have several options, but seemed very interested in Louisiana Tech.
Reed, who played with Tech defensive back Darius Terry last year at Lufkin, said he would like to see more Lufkin players come to Tech. Prior said he is still weighing his options, but he likes Louisiana Tech and added that it was an easy drive down Interstate 20.
Brett Craine, a big lineman from White Hall, Arkansas was also at the game. Other players visiting included Casey Henderson from Benton, Bennie Logan from Red River, and Shawn Edwards from Kilgore, TX.
