"Move me to a solid Red Raider commitment because I'm going to Texas Tech," said the Scout.com Texas Top 100 prospect, giving the Red Raiders their eighth Texas Top-100 verbal this year.
"I decided to stick with Texas Tech," said Garland offensive linemen Buddy Brumit. "It's home. And I really like the coaches there, the atmosphere, and the fact that I have my family in Lubbock."
But it wasn't that easy for the 3-star prospect who could have just as easily called Tucson, Arizona his home for the next four to five years.
"Eric Wollford is the best recruiter I ever met in my whole life," said the DFW-Area Blue Chip. "He's not one of those coaches who just wants to coach. He really builds a relationship with you. And he's really smart, and he knows his stuff -- knows how to stay on top of everything. He was checking in with the parents of some of the guys already on the team there, calling uncles and aunts, and calling grandparents to update them on his players. He just has it together and you can see why offensive linemen want to play for him."
"But Tech was just the place for me," Brumit explaining the lure of the Hub City. "It's where I grew up, it's home, and it's a place I can return to, and give something back."
Not to mention a few other plusses Lubbock offered the State's No. 88...
"They have my major and I'm really interested in becoming a doctor. Besides me, my mom and sister, all of my family lives here. And, I think I can relate really well with Coach Bill Bedenbaugh."
