Top Five Remaining Uncommitted Targets

Five prospects Texas Tech is really going after to help complete its draft class and how likely they are to sign with the Red Raiders.

Texas Tech has 16 committed prospects for the 2015 class. The coaching staff has said in the past it expects to take a full class, or approximately 25 commits, this cycle so that means they have a lot of work ahead of them between now and National Signing Day, which is just eight days away.

The following is a list (in alphabetical order) of Tech's top five uncommitted prospects and where I believe each will end up.

The Dallas Bishop Dunne four-star defensive tackle and Texas Tech legacy is the Red Raiders' top target in my opinion and for good reason. He was a TAPPS first-team all-state selection on both offensive and defensive line as a senior and helped lead Bishop Dunne to a state title.

At 6-foot-4, 305 pounds, he is a force of nature who if paired with five-star signee Breiden Fehoko, could help change the program on the defensive side of the ball.

Daniels told RaiderPower.com he is down to Tech, Oklahoma and Iowa and he will announce his decision 7 p.m. Friday.

Prediction: Texas Tech

The 6-foot-2, 230-pound linebacker would be a perfect fit at outside linebacker, presumably a replacement for Pete Robertson when his eligibility runs out after next season. McGinnis just visited Lubbock last weekend and appeared to really enjoy his time.

He visited Arizona the week before and will head to Norman this weekend. McGinnis is expected to choose from those three on National Signing Day. Following his visit to Tech last weekend he tweeted that it will be a hard decision.

Prediction: Arizona

The one-time Tech commit reopened his recruitment in December, but that hasn't deterred the Red Raider staff from pursuing the 6-foot-4, 195-pound four-star receiver. In fact, Texas Tech visited Strickland at Dallas Skyline High School earlier Tuesday just hours before his 8 p.m. (CT) decision time.

Skyline recruiting coordinator Eric Mims tweeted Strickland is choosing between Tech, Cal, UCLA and Oklahoma.

Prediction: Cal

The giant four-star interior offensive lineman visited Texas Tech earlier this month and was blown away by what the school and program has to offer. It probably didn't hurt fellow Hawaii native Breiden Fehoko was there to show him around as his host.

Uluave is down to Oregon and Texas Tech and despite his plan to go on LDS mission for two years before playing college ball, his commitment now could be a big help towards securing his services in the future.

Prediction: Texas Tech

The 6-foot-2, 275-pound four-star defensive lineman is a versatile disruptive force capable of playing both defensive end or tackle at the next level, though he has stated a preference to play the three-technique.

Wicker is down to a final three of Tech, Arizona State and UCLA.

The Texas Tech coaches visited Wicker last week at his school, Long Beach (CA) Poly and at his home which he said went very well.

Both Arizona State and UCLA are expected to visit him at home this week and he will make a final official visit this weekend to see the Bruins before announcing his decision on signing day.

Prediction: UCLA
