Red Raiders Land Another WR

Red Raiders add another pass-catcher to this year's recruiting haul of standout prospects.

Conroe Oak Ridge WR L.A. Reed decided to end the suspense when he pulled the commitment trigger in favor of the Red Raiders. His 6-2.5/6-3, 190-pound frame is just what the doctor ordered as Mike Leach and his staff continue searching for more size to add to their receiving corps. They got that and more.

"Texas Tech was the first team to offer me," said Reed when asked why he picked the Red Raiders. "And they're the school I like the most too."

Asked specifically what he liked the most about Texas Tech, Reed said, "Well, they pass the ball 90 percent of the time. I don't get the ball that much in my high school offense, so going to Tech will give me the opportunity to see a lot of passes and that's exciting."

Wide receiver/tight end coach Dana Holgorsen was tasked with the responsibility of reeling in the playmaking wideout and that's who Reed called when he decided to wrap up the recruiting process.

"I just told Coach Holgorsen that Texas Tech was the only school I was thinking about and that I wanted to go ahead and commit," Reed explained. "He said I made a good choice, that I was coming to a good school and that I would like it up there. He was excited."

Reed also favored schools such as, TCU, Iowa State, A&M, Kansas, Colorado and Baylor, but Texas Tech stood out just a little bit more.

The Oak Ridge senior-to-be said he wanted Red Raider fans to "look out" for him. And to "come see me play because I'm going to give it everything I have".
