WR Calvin Clater Talks Texas Tech Visit

2017 Fort Worth South Hills receiver Calvin Clater discusses his recent visit to Lubbock and his overall recruitment with RaiderPower.com.

Texas Tech, led by outside receivers coach Emmett Jones, has been recruiting Fort Worth South Hills receiver Calvin Clater for a while now and hosted the 6-foot-3 receiver for an unofficial visit over the weekend.


Clater originally planned on visiting for the spring game, but made the trek a week earlier instead. Despite missing the Red and Black game, Clater saw plenty he liked, which he detailed in the following interview conducted through direct messages via Twitter:

Raider Power:  First off, how'd the visit go overall? What'd you do?

Clater: It was an awesome visit. I watched practice and I met a lot of the players and the other half of the coaching staff. They gave me a tour around the whole campus. I liked it A LOT and I sat down and talked with Coach Jones.

Raider Power: Yeah, I read in a couple of your interviews with Zach Tanner that Coach Jones is leading your recruitment. What's your relationship like and what all did he say on the visit?

Clater: We have a great relationship. I talk to coach a lot and he said all he wants to see is me move around in person and that will be May 4th during spring ball.

Raider Power: Are they looking at you primarily at inside receiver?

Clater: Outside receiver. I Play outside. I don't play inside.


Raider Power: Ah. What'd you think of Tech's outside receivers during practice?

Clater: I think they're all very good athletes and they know how to work hard. They're physical and quick off the line of scrimmage.

Raider Power: You said you liked the campus a lot. What stood out, What'd you like about it?

Clater: I liked the weight room a lot, the student rec center and of course the football athletics center.

Raider Power: Do you have a leader or top group and do you know when you want to decide?

Clater: I want to decide sometime near December but it may be sooner and Tech is definitely in my top 5

Raider Power: Great. Who else is in the top 5? And what are you looking for overall in a school and program?

Clater: I really don't have an order yet but my interest in Tech is very high and I like Mississippi St. too but there's a lot of schools that's contacting me.

Raider Power: Is there anything else about the visit, Tech or you overall recruitment I'm missing or you'd like to add?

Clater: No sir.

Raider Power: Alright, thanks for your time and congrats on all your success.

Clater: Thank you and no problem.

Clater currently holds an offer from Nevada and reports interest from Colorado, Houston, Louisiana-Monroe, LSU, Oklahoma, TCU, and Texas Tech, among others.
