Dallas Skyline wide receiver Carlos Strickland feels that he could fit in at Texas Tech.
Strickland, a 6-foot-4, 195-pound junior, has received offers from Illinois, LSU, Oklahoma State, SMU, TCU, and Texas Tech. Strickland said overall his recruiting has been going really well and he is excited for this opportunity.
"At first I was stoked because I had never received this kind of attention before. Really it has been a huge blessing to get an opportunity like this," Strickland said.
Out of all of the schools looking at Strickland he said Texas Tech is going at him the hardest. Co-Offensive coordinator and receivers coach Eric Morris paid a visit to Skyline a couple weeks back and Strickland said they talked about the offense, plus his potential at Texas Tech.
"We talked about how the offense works there and the set ups," Strickland said. "I would see myself fitting in a lot because of the way they run things on offense, they pass the ball a lot and that's perfect."
Strickland said he doesn't have a trip to Lubbock planned yet, but may visit on Tech's upcoming junior day next weekend.
In his junior season Strickland caught 29 passes for 669 yards and nine touchdowns. Texas Tech's strong pass offense is what is really attracting Strickland to the program. Overall, he said he wants to find a program that will take his play to the next level.
"I am looking for a place I can just have a chance to play, a good program, powerful QB, good scheme, coaches, and somewhere I can elevate my play," Strickland said.
