Akamnonu Ready to Be a Red Raider

Arlington Bowie four-star OT Madison Akamnonu details his most recent visit to Texas Tech.

If there was any doubt Texas Tech would not receive a National Letter of Intent on signing day from Arlington Bowie offensive lineman Madison Akamnonu, it seems an official visit has settled it.

“The visit went great. It was amazing. I learned a few new things. I met a lot of new people. I met the other commits, so I could establish some type of relationship. Yeah, it was great.”

Akamnonu went into detail on what the recruits did on their visit.

Day One: “The first day, it was just everybody getting to know each other, so we had dinner together and we just talked and played a few video games and stuff.”

Day Two: “We looked at Tech and we went to academics. We went to the rec center, and then we went to Main Event, and we played laser tag and bowling, and we ate dinner again with our hosts.”

The trip to Maine Event is known as a major highlight on official visits in the Kliff Kingsbury era. Akamnonu placed his recap on the bowling competition.

“Corey (Dauphine), definitely (is the best bowler). He’s one of the better ones. Coach Chiaverini, man, he was a beast. Actually, the worst bowler is Jonathan Giles.”

Despite a lack of bowling technique, Giles made up for it during a laser tag game in which the recruits dominated anyone who was not a recruit. While Giles did well, Akamnonu placed the most valuable player tag on someone else.

“Broderick (Washington). He blew everyone out of the water. He got like 4570 points. I’m over here with like 225, but we still won because it was recruits vs. everyone else and of course, we just came out and demolished them.”

The four-star commit had plenty of fun, but it was also a business trip for him. Akamnonu did a little bit of recruiting himself with those who have not pledged with the Red Raiders. One uncommitted prospect in particular was Rockwall running back Chris Warren.

“I was talking to him and you know, he’s a pretty big dude himself, so I’m like ‘Look, you’ve got me, Cody, Trace, Conner on the line and we can pull a hole and you don’t need too much’.”

Akamnonu’s host was junior linebacker Bobby Esiaba. The 6-foot-5, 269 pound lineman expressed sadness as the conversation ended, but also realized he’ll be staying in the hub city for good in four months.

“I’m really sad that I’ve got to go. That’s what is really making me sad, but I’m going to be up here in another four months.”
