The first order of business is keep the current 25 commitments intact. L'Damian Washington is still telling Tech that he is committed. Look for a new interview with L'Damain soon.
John Hubert remains a target despite committing to Kansas State. Does tech still have a chance? "Yes," said Hubert. "They are coming by this week." Check back to see how his visit with the Tech staff went.
It looks like Tech will not sign another defensive lineman. They have decided not to take another end for sure. "It's okay," explained Germad Reed, who said he is now headed to UTEP. "I'm gonna do what I can to contribute to the team." Reed and fellow East Texas end Christopher Knighton visited a couple of weeks ago and were offered scholarships. Unfortunatly, they got caught up in a numbers crunch.
With a full class already, Louisiana Tech is looking to close out with Porter and Hubert. They want to oversign in case they lose a commit at the last minute or if a commit fails to qualify. If they still end up with more than 25, they have a plan in place to grayshirt a few players.
Jesse Grandy is still scheduled to come in this weekend. Like Quin Giles, Grandy can make a huge impact at receiver or safety. Grandy, who has offers from Tech, Arkansas, and Mississippi, is another top playmaker Tech would love to get to close out the 2009 class.
Some of the top Tech recruits that have committed elsewhere are still popping up on the rumor mill. Lamin Barrow was down to Tech and Ole Miss before LSU offered. Bennie Logan attended at least four of Tech's home games to see his brother play. Both players have been rumored to still be considering a visit to Tech. It's unknown whether those visits will happen. Logan committed to LSU yesterday, so he appears to be out of the picture. We will keep our ears to the wall and let you know if anything happens with these two players.
Louisiana Tech looks to be in a good position going in to the home stretch.
