6-foot-2, 310-pound defensive tackle Courtney Wallace became the 11th commit of Texas Tech's 2015 class on Saturday night.
Wallace confirmed his verbal pledge with RaiderPower.com late Saturday, but wanted to wait until Sunday morning to announce.
He joins five-star prospect Breiden Fehoko from Farrington (HI) and Broderick Washington, who committed a couple weeks ago, from Longview on the list of defensive linemen pledged to the Red Raiders for the 2015 recruiting cycle. That is almost 900 pounds of beef up front for Texas Tech.
To put it in perspective, the Red Raiders only signed one high school defensive tackle (Anthony Smith) in the past three classes and none in coach Kliff Kingsbury's first two recruiting classes.
Wallace is rated by Scout as a three-star prospect and as the No. 48 defensive tackle in the 2015 class. He told RaiderPower.com in a previous interview the Tech coaches plan on utilizing him at nose guard.
Wallace chose Texas Tech over offers from Arkansas State, Louisiana Tech, Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisiana-Monroe, South Alabama, South Florida and Southern Mississippi.
