Three Texas Tech football coaches
Destrehan athlete Kirk Merritt listed off who crossed the state line to speak with him.
"The running back coach, the head coach and Kevin Curtis."
Those familiar with the program know the running backs coach is Mike Jinks and the head coach is Kliff Kingsbury.
Merritt (5-foot-11, 200 pounds) said the coaches plan to use him as an athlete all over the field including as a returner and a tackler on kick-offs.
When the question about Kingsbury's spread offense came up, Merritt responded in a positive tone.
"I really like it, because I'm running it in high school right now and it's used to give the athlete in space and that's really what I want."
The Red Raiders are speaking to Merritt on a weekly basis with the majority of contact coming from Curtis.
Lubbock is in the opposite part of Texas from the Louisiana border, but that doesn't worry Merritt.
"It really doesn't play as a big factor, because my family will just come and watch me anyway."
Merritt doesn't have a list of top schools at the moment, but he does plan on visiting Tech at some point in the future.
For those wondering what the three-star prospect is up to at the moment, besides collecting offers from the likes of Arizona State, Clemson, Florida, Mississippi, Nebraska, Notre Dame, TCU, Tennessee and Texas A&M.
"I'm working hard and staying humble."
