Replenishing the Ranks: Justin Stockton

Texas Tech ended the 2013 season triumphantly with a 37-23 Holiday Bowl win over Arizona State. Now the Red Raiders must replace some important outgoing pieces. The following is one in a series of updates on Tech 2014 recruits in the month leading up to National Signing Day. Of all the explosive recruits of the class, Cibolo Steele all-state running back Justin Stockton may be the fastest.

It's no secret Texas Tech commit Justin Stockton had a stellar day in the San Antonio Sports All-Star Football Game.

"It's a blessing. God blessed me with a gift and there are dudes on special teams that blocked their butts off," Stockton said. "But without them, you know the holes wouldn't open up like that."

Stockton returned three kickoffs to the house. Some teams would eventually kick away from a kick returner who can score and that's exactly what the West team did. The East would get Stockton the ball on two of those return scores.

If his kick returning wasn't enough, the Cibolo Steele running back punched into the end zone twice more for a total of five touchdowns on the night.

Stockton is still solid with the Red Raiders and will visit the campus Jan, 24. No one is trying to flip Stockton or at least he doesn't give them a chance to.

"I'm solid. They ask and I tell them ‘You know I'm 100 percent with Tech, so don't even bother'"
