Stringer Talks Tech Visit, Recent Offers

RaiderPower.com caught up with Cypress Ranch linebacker Brayden Stringer for a recap of his visit to Texas Tech last weekend and an update on his overall recruitment.

Cypress Ranch (TX) linebacker Brayden Stringer is seeing his recruitment blow up. Indiana, Arizona, Cal and Oklahoma State are the newest schools to throw their hats into the ring for the prospect, who currently holds eight Power 5 offers.

The linebacker is fresh off his visit to Texas Tech last weekend, and had great things to say about his visit.

"I had a really good visit. I love the campus. All the coaches were real nice, Coach Gibbs, coach Spavital we went over some film and how well I fit into their scheme. We watched the spring game and went over their defense, just how it went and how it would work with me." The defender has been in contact with the Tech coaches for nearly a month on Twitter.

"Me and coach Spavital started talking on Twitter probably about four weeks ago, we started messaging, he watched me do some drills during the athletic period, they offered me that night, that's when we started talking. Coach Gibbs and Coach Kingsbury message me too and just emphasize how much they want me at Tech."

Stringer had more to say about his interaction with coach Kingsbury on the visit.

"I talked to Coach Kingsbury and he just emphasized how much he wanted me at Tech, he's a real nice guy, they're all really nice guys, and I had a good time going up there."

The remoteness of Lubbock is sometimes a turn-off for some prospects, who would prefer to play closer to home. That's not the case for Stringer.

"I love Tech, Tech's definitely up there on my list of schools that I'm really interested in. The campus is beautiful. Lubbock kind of does its own thing being out there, it's kind of out there on its own, some people may not like that but I kinda do. It was just good being up there."

The Houston-area linebacker is looking for a school with great academics, and wants a good relationship with the coaches.

"I'd like a degree somewhere in the business field. A big deal with me is the chemistry between me and the coaches. I want to know that they're there for me, I'm not just hopping into something. That's a big deal to me."

In a previous story, Stringer mentioned wanting to commit as soon as his high school's spring ball was over (their last scrimmage/spring game is on the 29th of May). With more Power Five offers coming in, and schools like Texas A&M coming to visit, he's pushing out his timeline a little bit so he makes the right decision.

"With the recent offers from Oklahoma State and Arizona, I'd still like to commit right after the spring, it just kinda depends on how good everything goes and if I find a school that I'm in love with completely. A&M, they're kind of watching me. Coach Chavis and coach Banks, I think they're gonna come out possibly next week and visit me. Iowa State came out and watched me, that was about it, SMU came out but I haven't really heard from them."

While Tech remains high on his list, Stringer is not ready to name a list of favorites and is keeping things even until he can make more visits.

"I'm keeping everything pretty even right now. Some schools, I'm starting to narrow it down and some of the bigger schools I can see myself playing at. But as far as the schools I've narrowed it down to, they're all pretty even."

Stringer was extremely productive last season for Cy-Ranch head coach Gene Johnson, putting up big numbers against impressive competition like Langham Creek, Cy-Woods, and Cy-Fair.

"I think I had, at the end of the regular season, maybe a little over a hundred tackles, but I don't know what I had during the playoffs."

The defender currently holds offers from Arizona, Oklahoma State, Boston College, Illinois, Indiana, Texas Tech, and Wisconsin, among others.
