Texas Tech's next commit?

Texas Tech is always looking to plug in top offensive linemen into Mike Leach's passing scheme. The Red Raider coaching staff has found a target out of the Fort Worth area that fits the bill perfectly. This 6'4, 330 pound lineman could very well be Tech's next commit, and it most likely will happen within the next week. Come inside as RaiderPower brings you the inside scoop.

Deveric Gallington is one of the top offensive guards in the Lonestar State and he recently took an unofficial visit to check out the school that is leading for his services.

"I flew out to Jacksonville on Sunday and then we drove to Gainesville for a helmet and shoulder pad camp," said Gallington. "We just got back today and we had a blast. The campus is by far the best I have been to and I enjoyed meeting and hanging out with the coaches."

Gallington worked out with Gator offensive line coach John Hevesy and the two broke away from the pack for some private instruction that could end up paying big dividends for both parties.

"We worked out for about an hour with just me and him," Gallington explained. "He said that it's between me and one other guy from Florida for their last o-line spot and that he would let me know something by the end of the week."

The big 6-4, 330-pounder says that his offer list has grown considerably since the last time Scout.com spoke with him but the field has been narrowed to two.

"My offers are from Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, Purdue, Kansas State, Iowa State, Arizona, TCU, SMU, Washington State, and there are some more but I can't think of them right now," said Gallington. "I'm down to either Florida or Texas Tech. If Florida offers I will commit but if not then it will be Texas Tech."

Something could go down as early as this weekend with the big Texan and if not then by next week.

"I'll probably make a visit to Lubbock next week and take a look at everything," said Gallington. "My coach doesn't want me to commit to a school without visiting so we're going to go over there. If I like everything and Florida doesn't offer then I will commit while I'm there."
