Red Raider Nation was alerted to the 21st football commitment of the 2014 class with the familiar "BOOOM!" from Texas Tech recruiting coordinator Jason Reed's Twitter account.
Not too long later, 6-foot-7, 310-pound Tyler Junior College offensive lineman Drew Sarvary also took to Twitter to announce he "Officially committed to Texas Tech!"
His current coach was not surprised he chose Texas Tech over offers from East Carolina, Memphis, North Texas and South Florida after visiting Lubbock last weekend.
"He likes Kingsbury, he enjoyed his visit there, they think he'll start and he probably will," Tyler JC coach Danny Palmer said. "I think the difference was Kliff Kingsbury didn't want him they told him they needed him. I think he liked what the other players told him about Kliff Kingsbury and liked the other players while he was there."
Sarvary played for Florida A&M last season out of Tallahassee Leon high school, starting in just his second game as a true freshman against Oklahoma in Norman.
"Any kid that goes to Florida A&M and plays in that program as he did as a freshman against Oklahoma can play, because there's a lot of athletes at Florida A&M," Palmer said. "But he wanted another atmosphere and the only way he was going to do that was by going to junior college and then transfer. Texas Tech is getting a good football player, he'll do well there academically and he'll be there in December."
Palmer added Sarvary has good feet, a good grasp of what they want to do on offense and is equally adept at both run and pass blocking.
Sarvary is Texas Tech's fifth offensive lineman commitment of the 2014 class, joining Robert Castaneda (Round Rock), Justin Murphy (Belton), Mildren Montgomery (Oklahoma City Douglass) and Deionte Noel (Cibolo Steele).
