Duffey got to tour the campus, be a fly on the wall through the players’ workouts, and got to know the players and coaching staff better.
“It was pretty cool. Texas Tech’s weight room was very energized. I got to get a picture of what I will be doing there,” Duffey said.
Yet Duffey said that his favorite part of the trip was when he stepped into The Jones. He said he just pictured what it would be like in the years to come when he is suited up in Red and Black.
For Duffey, it is all about the relationships you make throughout the recruiting process, which is something he said he really took away from the Elite 11 semifinals in Los Angeles.
“If it was one thing I would take away, the Elite 11 is a brotherhood, we compete hard but at the end of the day we create relationships,” Duffey said.
Duffey is working on building those relationships at Texas Tech, and said he enjoyed talking with everyone on the staff on his visit. He added he talked with quarterback Davis Webb during workouts and the other recruits visiting.
He is also working on bringing more talent to Lubbock to compete with him. Guys like 2017 offensive lineman Jack Anderson and recent Texas Tech four-star receiver commit T.J. Vasher are guys Duffey has been talking a lot with, but “there are a couple more guys were trying to get,” he said.
“Lubbock is definitely where I want to be. I can’t wait to play in Lubbock and bring home that Big 12 championship,” he said.For the meantime, Duffey is busy prepping for the Elite 11 finals in Oregon next month.
“I have the playbook in my lap right now,” he said.
Duffey is looking forward to competing with the best quarterbacks in the nation and being around some of the best coaching.
