Gallington is a Red Raider

Texas Tech is always in need of talented offensive linemen and they landed just that Monday evening. After taking visits to both Texas Tech and Arizona, 3 star prospect Deveric Gallington told RaiderPower, "I'm a Red Raider."

The Red Raiders have been pursuing Richland Hills offensive lineman Deveric Gallington really hard, and Monday evening that hard work paid off.

"I committed to Texas Tech this evening," said an excited Gallington. "I went to Tech a couple of weekends ago and I just fell in love with the place. It has everything I want out of a school."

Gallington is the 12th commit for what will be a small class in 2008.

Several schools had been giving Gallington the run around. Florida brought him down for a visit and kept delaying on offering the 3 star prospect. He also visited Alabama, who did the same thing.

Will there be other schools that get a shot of pulling him away from his commitment?

"No, this is it. I won't be taking any more visits or anything. I did visit Arizona last weekend. I compared it to my visit to Tech and that's when I saw how much I really liked Tech."

Although Gallington did play some defensive tackle in high school, he is projected to be an offensive guard at the next level.
