Fisher makes the call

Texas Top 100 wide receiver Aaron Fisher from Keller Fossil Ridge pulled in two offers yesterday and made a verbal commitment today. RaiderPower.com spoke with Fisher to find out where he will be heading.

Right after Keller (TX) Fossil Ridge wide receiver Aaron Fisher pulled in offers 10 and 11, he was ready to make his decision. This morning the 6-foot-3, 185-pound Fisher made the call to the Red Raider coaches and gave his verbal.

"I called the Texas Tech coaches today and gave my verbal commitment," Aaron told us.

"I chose Texas Tech because they're a great school and just a great program. They're only taking one wide receiver in this recruiting class, so I felt like it was a great opportunity for me."

Alan Nadeau (Fisher's stepfather) added, "[Texas Tech] is a perfect fit for him."

It all started from the Fossil Ridge scrimmage where Fisher shined. The Texas Tech coaches were there to evaluate Fisher and were very impressed with what they saw.

On one play, the Texas Top 100 wide receiver took a pass 70 yards for a touchdown. Apparently, that was all it took to pull in not one, but two new offers.

"The [Fossil Ridge] coaches ran a slant route to Aaron, and he took it for a touchdown," Nadeau said. "I heard the reaction was sort of like the ‘wow' factor. That seemed to seal the deal."

The other offer received was from Missouri, but Fisher had already made his mind up. He chose Texas Tech over other offers from Minnesota, Louisiana Tech, Arizona, Vanderbilt, Kansas, Northwestern, Iowa, Purdue, and Boise State.

Fisher has not yet taken an official visit to Lubbock, but he says, "I plan on visiting as soon as possible."

Fisher finished the season with 61 receptions for 1,059 yards and 16 touchdowns. As a return specialist, he averaged over 44 yards a return and scored one touchdown.
