Texas Tech extended an offer to one of the top prospects in the nation of the 2018 class Tuesday in Cedar Hill four-star running back Josh Fleeks.
"My coach (Joey McGuire) called me and told me and my reaction was funny because I just got done working out and I was wanting an offer from there for the longest," Fleek said.
Fleeks is rated as a four-star prospect, one of the top running backs in the country and the No. 153 overall prospect of the 2018 class by Scout. He attended Texas Tech's satellite camp at Duncanville over the weekend and made a big impression on the coaches, by among other things, running a 4.34-second 40-yard dash.
The 6-foot, 165-pound speedster added the offer couldn't have come fast enough because he has been a fan of the program for some time, more so now his cousin T.J. Vasher, one of Tech's top-rated signees of the 2016 class, is on campus.
"T.J. and I are really close. I grew up with him (and known him) for a real long time," Fleeks added.
The offer didn't get by Vasher either who posted a congratulatory message to his cousin on Twitter.
Fleeks is a dynamic runner in the open field (which you can watch in the video clips below from Cedar Hill spring ball) and is a versatile guy equally comfortable making plays out of the backfield as he is at lining up in the slot and burning defensive backs.
The junior to be holds offers from Tech, Houston, Illinois, Iowa State and SMU, plus reports interest from Texas A&M. Fleeks added he doesn't have a timetable for deciding on a school.
