Another Big Week for Tech

Louisiana Tech added commitment number 18 in L'Damian Washington and number 19 could be very close.

Louisiana Tech Head Coach Derek Dooley had a few in-home visits this week. He went to Dallas to follow up with Roderick Goodlow from Adamson HS, who took an official visit to Tech last weekend. Goodlow is visiting Northwestern this weekend and is expected to announce his decision on Monday. Louisiana Tech, Northwestern, and Wisconsin appear to be the leaders. Coach Dooley also stopped by to see Josh Harris from Duncanville. Harris, who is committed to Wake Forest, was one of six players on their official visits this week.

Coach Dooley also stopped by the homes of Kilgore offensive lineman Vince Cano and Green Oaks star L'Damian Washington. Cano committed to Tech in November. So did Washington commit to Coach Dooley in person? "Yes, sir," said the 6'4" receiver from Shreveport. "It went great and I really like his way of doing things. He is a great coach to me."

With Washington in the fold, Coach Dooley and staff were able to turn their attention to this weekend's visitors. Josh Harris said he had a good time. "I like it here," said Harris. "And it's really close to home."

Harris said he is committed to Wake Forest, but he is still considering Tech, Kansas State, and Purdue. "I would consider myself a soft lean to Wake Forest," explained Harris. "I liked it there, but it's so far away."

The only other visitor this week who hasn't committed to Tech was Jacob Miller. Miller is a 6"3" and 280 pound guard from Hutchinson Junior College in Kansas. "I have offers from Missouri State, Arkansas State, Old Dominion, and Louisiana Tech," said Miller. "Signing day is Wednesday and I am leaning toward Tech."

"I can play guard or tackle," added Miller. "Wherever they need me, I can help out." Miller would join John White from Oklahoma as junior college players expected to sign with Tech. Signing day for junior college players is Wednesday.

Other visitors in town this week were Matt Nelson, Shakeil Lucas, Vince Cano, and Javontay Crowe. Crowe said he was feeling good about his decision to commit to play for Louisiana Tech. "This weekend went great," he said. "I am so glad to get the decision out of the way.

Check back later this week to get the latest on which junior college players sign with Tech and on Roderick Goodlow's decision.
