Texas Tech picked up its first
Texas City linebacker D'Vonta Hinton confirmed to RaiderPower.com via text message that he pledged to the Red Raiders.
Hinton, 5-foot-10, 200-pounds, was selected Class 4A first team all-state in 2013 by the Associated Press after compiling 148 tackles with 27 for loss, four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and a pair of defensive touchdowns.
The defensive standout visited Texas Tech on Saturday with his father for the Red Raiders' annual Red and Black scrimmage at Jones AT&T Stadium.
Hinton, who is unrated by Scout.com, chose Tech over offers from Louisiana Tech, Maryland, Texas State and Texas-San Antonio.
He joins three-star running back Corey Dauphine, four-star quarterback Jarrett Stidham, four-star junior college offensive lineman Lio Lafaele and three-star offensive lineman Trace Ellison as class of 2015 Texas Tech commits.
