New JUCO lineman Prospect?

No other position has been more volatile for the 2104 class than offensive line, but Texas Tech will host a JUCO All-American this weekend. RaiderPower.com caught up with the prospect Thursday night to see where he stands.

Shaquille Davis confirmed Thursday night he is visiting Texas Tech this weekend and the Red Raiders have offered him.

"They're in the top three," Davis said. The other two schools are Colorado State and Fresno State.

Texas Tech assistant coach Darrin Chiaverini, who coached at Mt. San Antonio College, is the main contact for Davis.

"He came back and he was looking for some dudes and he saw me and he was all like ‘We're gonna look at your tape' and when he saw my team he was like ‘Yeah, you need to come here'."

Davis enjoys the fact Texas Tech features five Red Raider alums on staff.

"I think that's great. That brings even more tradition towards the team and adds an extra added intensity because of course, if that's their alma mater, they don't want to lose. They want to win even more."

The 6-foot-4, 306-pound lineman, who was named a first-team All-American by the JC Athletic Bureau and California Community College Football Coaches Association, said he enjoys any type of blocking, but prefers pass blocking because he it feels better to win without any help.

"Since I play tackle, you're on an island and I like being on that island. I like beating the dude one-on-one."
