Hocker, Farrar Latest OL to Commit to Texas Tech

Texas Tech added two more offensive lineman commitments to the 2017 class on Friday.

Texas Tech offensive line coach Lee Hays is absolutely on fire as the Red Raiders have six offensive linemen committed to the 2017 class after a flurry of pledges this week capped by Jared Hocker's and Will Farrar's announcements Friday.

Hocker, a 6-foot-5, 291-pound tackle out of Richland Hills (Tex.) High School who originally committed to Kansas, picked Tech over offers from schools such as Colorado State, Fresno State, Kansas, Kansas State, SMU and Tulane.

Farrar, a 6-5, 290-pound tackle announced his commitment to Tech via Twitter just a couple hours later. The Fort Bend (Tex.) Travis standout, rated as the No. 6 tackle in Texas and No. 38 at his position in the nation, chose the Red Raiders over dozens of offers from some of the most recognizable programs from coast-to-coast such as LSU, Miami, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Texas and UCLA.

Friday's commits came on the heels of another double boom of offensive linemen just three days earlier when Casey Verhulst, a 6-6, 272-pound tackle from Plano (Tex.) East and Dylan Weaver, a 6-6, 275-pound tackle from Farmington (NM) Piedra Vista.

Don't forget Hays and Co. also reeled in Jack Reichel, a 6-5, 308-pound lineman from American River College (Calif.) in late May as a late addition to the 2016 class. That gives Tech four offensive lineman commits, and one signing(Reichel), in about a two week span!

The four commits this week join Frisco teammates Jack Anderson, one of the top overall prospects in the nation regardless of position, and Dawson Deaton to give Texas Tech one of the top, if not THE top 2017 OL class in the country.

Overall, the Red Raiders are up to nine commits for the 2017 cycle and reactions to the newest commitments from the previous pledges started pouring in.
