Spring (Tex.) defensive end Lonzell Gilmore announced his commitment to Texas Tech via Twitter on Thursday.
Just want to say thank who all supported me throughout this recruiting process cause I promise it was a TOUGH choice. pic.twitter.com/IiJvoQVlbl— Bookie #9?4? (@TheFrenchQrt) December 19, 2014
The 6-foot-3, 210-pound Gilmore is expected to play Bandit at Texas Tech which means he'll split time as a pass rusher with his hand on the ground and at outside backer up in a two-point stance.
Gilmore chose Tech over offers from Colorado State, Fresno State, Kansas State, Nevada and Stephen F. Austin. He told RaiderPower.com earlier Thursday his decision came down to Tech and Nevada, adding "both are good schools to me so it'll be a tough choice".
In the end, he picked the Red Raiders at a position of need as Gilmore is the first outside linebacker/defensive end type to pledge to the Red Raiders in this recruiting cycle.
Gilmore joins three defensive linemen: five-star defensive tackle Breiden Fehoko from Honolulu Farrington, three-star defensive tackle Courtney Wallace from Louisiana Class 4A state champ Monroe Neville two-star defensive tackle Broderick Washington of Longview.
Linebacker D'Vonta Hinton and Houston Jersey Village safety Christian Taylor are the other current defensive pledge for Texas Tech, giving the Red Raiders six so far in the current cycle.
Gilmore was the third prospect to commit to Texas Tech on Thursday as La Mirada (Calif.) four-star receiver Tony Brown and Taylor both pledged to the Red Raiders earlier.
