Two in Play for Lauderdale

FOX Sports NEXT has an update on Bellaire wide receiver Devin Lauderdale from Houston, Texas. He has some weekend plans and shared them with us.

After a coaching change at Texas Tech, wide receiver commitment Devin Lauderdale from Houston (TX) Bellaire. He mentioned that he would be looking into options like West Virginia and California, even setting up visits at Oklahoma State and Notre Dame.

Perhaps there has been a change of heart. On January 11, the 5-foot-10, 175-pound Lauderdale took an official to Oklahoma and this upcoming weekend (January 25), he will be visiting the school that he is currently committed to.

"A couple of weeks ago, I visited OU. It was a good visit and I liked the environment," Lauderdale said. "That's the only visit I have made so far. I am going to Texas Tech this weekend. I am still committed to Tech."

Surely that's good news for Red Raider fans as Lauderdale is a solid play maker who should see the field early in his collegiate career. This past season, as a receiver and return specialist, he had 1,025 yards and 14 total touchdowns.

Now he will go to the place where he originally called for long ago in the recruiting process. 

"I want to see how I feel there (in Lubbock). I want to see if I can be there for four years," Lauderdale said. "These two schools are the only two I am visiting."

At one time, there was talk that a visit to Ohio State was likely to happen, but Lauderdale said during the interview that it would not. Only the two Big 12 programs will see him for an official visit. 

"On February 6, I will choose between Texas Tech and Oklahoma. That's it, those two," Lauderdale said.
