Welker helped the Red Raiders land Batson and the young punt returner may end up helping Tech land a top-notch defensive recruit in Edmond Santa Fe safety Calvin Bundage.
“He [Batson] makes me feel really good about Texas Tech," Bundage said. "He likes it down there, so he’s wanting me to come and visit to see it on my own.”
Bundage said he first heard about Texas Tech when Batson committed to the Red Raiders. Tech inside linebackers coach Matt Brock offered Bundage back in December after looking over his academic transcript.
At 6-foot-2, 190 pounds, Bundage is rated as a four-star safety by Scout, the No. 12 safety in the nation and top safety in the state of Oklahoma, but told RaiderPower.com Texas Tech is recruitng him at both safety and outside linebacker.
Bundage has offers from 15 different schools, including all three FBS teams in his home state. The Scout Top 300 prospect also features an offer from Arizona where his brother, Cayman, will be a senior offensive lineman.
Cayman is allowing his brother to let the recruiting process play out, and make his own decisions, “He wants me to do what I want to do.”
Bundage will not attend Tech’s junior day, but he does plan to visit soon. All 15 schools are recruiting the Santa Fe safety equally as hard. He recently told Scout he’s not close to making a decision yet.
“It’s not even a thought in my head right now,” said Bundage about a potential commitment. “It has been really crazy, but I’m not really thinking about it.”
