Texas Tech Offers 2019 WR Theo Wease

Allen (Tex.) receiver Theo Wease, Jr. discussed his offer from Texas Tech on Wednesday and his overall recruitment with RaiderPower.com.

Yet another 2019 wide receiver was offered by Texas Tech today in standout Allen prospect Theo Wease, Jr.


The 6-foot-2, 183-pound prospect was actually going to attend and compete in the Texas Tech satellite camp at Euless Trinity tomorrow, but due to a 7-on-7 event will have to postpone his visit to next month's camp. He does not plan on competing, of course, now that an offer has been extended.

"No, I don't think we'll be able to go to the camp any more since Allen, we got invited to a 7-on-7 tournament in Arkansas for Friday and we're leaving tomorrow. If I was going, my quarterback Grant Tisdale was going to come with me. I was really just hoping to meet all the coaches. Get the feeling of everybody. Since I can't go to this camp tomorrow, I was going to go to the one when the come back out here on July 24th." 


Wease discussed some of his thoughts on Texas Tech, and outside receivers coach Emmett Jones.

"I know that I like their offense. I like how it's up-tempo, fast-paced. I like how coach Jones works with the receivers, to make sure their technique is up and ready. He focuses on the technique first, before you start catching anything. I like that - I like learning slow, and just progressing."

Coach Jones will be serving as Wease's primary recruiter, and Wease discussed how their relationship has grown.

"Not too long. When he came out to one of our spring practices, that's when I first met him, and then he came out to a couple more. We just started talking from there. When I first met him, I knew we were going to have a good relationship. He made me feel welcome, he was just open and I could just ask him about anything."

Since he just wrapped up his freshman year at Allen, he's just getting a feel for the different colleges and doesn't know too much about Texas Tech outside of the Red Raider football team.

"I was hoping I could visit soon, just to get a better feel for where it's at and everything about it. Right now I just know about the football program."

Wease has a high opinion of the coaching staff at Tech.

"The coaches there, they're some of the best. I've met coach Jones, and met coach Kingsbury just for a little bit. Going off those two, I know that the rest of the coaching staff is just great. I know that they love to win, and they love coaching to win."

Schools from every corner of the country are beginning to show interest.
"Some other schools are Washington, Baylor, Oregon, Alabama, Florida State, that's really it right now."
With more offers likely coming soon, and a pair of offers already, does Wease have a timeline for making a decision? 
"I feel like I am going to do all that around this time after my junior year, right before my senior year going into the season. Two years from now. I would want to just shut everything down before my senior year so I could really focus on the season and know where I'm going to go."
Wease discussed his role for the Eagles last fall. 
"I was on the freshman team, but I played the last varsity game and all throughout the playoffs."
Regardless of whether they've offered, are any schools standing out at the moment?
"Tech, of course, Florida State, Texas, USC and Oklahoma."
However, two Big 12 schools are currently at the top of his list. 
"I feel like [Tech] is the perfect fit for me. The two schools that I always felt like would be good schools for me are Texas Tech and Oklahoma, just because of how they treat their receivers and get their receivers the ball. So when my coaches called me to tell me about the Tech offer, I was just like, this is perfect. This is my plan."
Although it's early, Wease looks like the latest Allen Eagle to be a national-player recruit, and will certainly be a top Texas Tech target in the class of 2019.
Theo Wease, Jr. holds offers from SMU and Texas Tech. He reports interest from Alabama, Baylor, Florida State, Oklahoma, Oregon, and Washington, among others.
