Scout Top 100 WR Commits to Texas Tech

Dallas Skyline four-star receiver Carlos Strickland committed to Texas Tech on Tuesday.

Dallas Skyline football's official Twitter account announced Tuesday that senior Carlos Strickland committed to Texas Tech.



Strickland is rated as a four-star prospect, ranked as the No. 12 receiver in the nation, No. 2 in Texas and a member of the Scout Top 100.

The 6-foot-4, 195-pound receiver committed to Texas Tech over offers from Alabama, California, Clemson, Connecticut, Illinois, LSU, Miami, Mississippi, North Texas, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma State, SMU, TCU, Texas, UCLA, UNLV and Wisconsin.

Strickland is the sixth four-star or better rated offensive player committed to the Red Raiders for the current recruiting cycle joining five-star quarterback Jarrett Stidham, four-star running back Corey Dauphine and four-star offensive linemen Madison Akamnonu, Conner Dyer and Lio Lafaele.

"Strickland is the tall and wiry-strong wide receiver who always seems to be open. He runs clean routes and then uses his size and reach to make sure catches," said Scout National Recruiting Analyst Greg Powers. "One of his best attributes is his blocking ability. He takes those snaps as seriously as the ones where his number is called. He is a weapon in the red-zone using his size to make a mismatch over smaller defensive backs. He is a pretty good route runner as well. Just very well-rounded."

Scout Midlands Recruiting Analyst Gabe Brooks recently covered two of Strickland's games. You can read his evaluation of Strickland's performances HERE and HERE.

Strickland is Texas Tech's second receiver commit, joining Jonathan Giles from Fort Bend Elkins. Red Raider receivers coach and co-offensive coordinator Eric Morris recently said Tech will sign 4-5 receivers in the 2015 class.
