Jeffers enjoyed Lubbock

Current Texas Tech commit Harrison Jeffers, along with his family, was in Lubbock this past weekend for the Texas A&M game. The 4 star running back had already visited once, but he wanted his family to see why he feels Texas Tech is the place for him. We also have what DT prospect Lavunce Askew told Harrison during their visit. Come inside to get all the latest scoop on the recruiting scene.

Lawton, Oklahoma running back Harrison Jeffers has been excited to show off Texas Tech to his family.

Jeffers had already visited Lubbock by himself for the annual Red-Black game, but he really wanted to show his family everything that Texas Tech had to offer.

"My family loved it," said Jeffers.  "They enjoyed everything about the campus.  We also had a chance to talk with Coach Leach and Coach Littrell.  They were both excited about me coming down for A&M weekend."

The 5'9, 207 pound running back has only set foot on campus a few times, but that doesn't mean he isn't one of the more popular players around town.

Jeffers remains solid to Texas Tech
"The crazy thing is that people all around Lubbock know who I am," explained Jeffers.  "At the game there were fans chanting my name, which was cool.  The craziest thing was we went out to eat.  We were waiting for a table when someone came up and asked if I was Harrison Jeffers.  He told me he had seen my highlight videos on YouTube.  Everywhere I go in Lubbock, people know me."

Jeffers has been a Tech commit since March of this year, but other schools are still trying to pry him away from the Red Raiders.  One team in particular is working extremely hard on him.

"Oklahoma State keeps telling me I need to get away from Tech and go to OSU.  They are trying to get me to come down for this week's game.  I'm not hearing it though.  I'm still solid to Tech."

There were several other big prospects in town besides Jeffers, one of the biggest being Arkansas commit Lavunce Askew.  Harrison was able to spend a lot of time with the 3 star defensive tackle out of Camden Fairview High School.

 "I did get a chance to talk with Askew," said Jeffers.  "We hung out all night.  He talked about taking one more visit to Tech before deciding.  He did tell me that he was having a great time though.  I kept telling him Tech is where he needs to be."

Jeffers has racked up over 1100 yards rushing and receiving this season for Eisenhower High School.
