Red Raiders Hosting Top Recruits This Weekend

Texas Tech is hosting an impressive list of recruits this weekend for the season opener against Sam Houston State.

Labor Day weekend will be a big recruiting visit weekend for Texas Tech, as a slew of prospects from the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, the Greater Houston Area, and even a couple from out-of-state all make their way to Lubbock.

Headlining the list of visitors are four Cedar Hill class of 2017 Scout300 prospects in quarterback Avery Davis , receiver Charleston Rambo, receiver Jaylon Jackson and receiver Camron Buckley. Rambo, whom RaiderPower.com interviewed back in July, is the fourth-ranked wide receiver in the state of Texas and stated during the interview that Texas Tech is "showing the most love". Buckley, the sixth-ranked wide receiver in the state, is seeking the right offensive system to play in and mentioned during a previous interview that he "love[s] Texas Tech's offense. Seventy percent of the time, they're throwing the ball."

Davis, the fourth-ranked quarterback in the state, was offered by offensive coordinator Eric Morris back in June and was very impressive in Cedar Hill's opener last week, accounting for four touchdowns and 277 total yards.

Another pair of Metroplex juniors make their way to Lubbock this weekend in athlete Khari Dickinson and center Jack Anderson. Anderson, the top-ranked center in the class of 2017, has visited Texas Tech numerous times and Texas Tech is expected to land on the Top 6 that he releases this weekend. Dickinson, who mentioned he was "praying and hoping for an offer" from Texas Tech, was clocked twice running a 4.4-second 40 yard dash at Texas Tech's Euless Trinity satellite camp back in June.

A pair of Bayou State prospects will take their official visits to Texas Tech this weekend. Outside linebackers Kevin Moore and Johnathan Picone, both from high schools along the I-10 corridor in southern Louisiana, will make their way up to Texas Tech to watch the game. Picone, who committed to Texas Tech back in June, is actively recruiting Moore, who holds an offer from Texas Tech and is also being recruited by coach Kevin Curtis. Moore is the second-ranked outside linebacker prospect in the state of Louisiana in the class of 2016.

Further west along the I-10 corridor, class of 2016 outside linebacker Brayden Stringer will be taking an unofficial visit to Texas Tech. The Houston-area linebacker has shut down his recruitment, with no plans to visit any other schools despite holding offers from Arizona, Oklahoma State, and Wisconsin among others. This will be Stringer's second unofficial visit, as he is conserving his official visit until after the season. 

Rounding out the confirmed visitor list is West Texas standout Ivory Jackson. The Amarillo High School defensive tackle committed to Texas Tech over offers from SMU, Kansas, and Kansas State among others.
