The 6-1, 190-pound safety was committed to Oklahoma State but just before Thanksgiving he announced his de-commitment and was looking seriously at Texas Tech. He called Oklahoma State earlier this week and set up an official visit for this weekend, and he made the trip to Stillwater with family.
There are reports that McGruder has re-confirmed his commitment but none of those reports show any substantiation or quotes from the player. There was a "pistols firing" tweet from Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy on Sunday morning that was attributed to the Houston area. Gundy also saw McGruder this week as he was in Houston for the Houston Touchdown Club Banquet.
We have calls and messages in to McGruder to try and confirm the new pledge.
