"I've liked them for a while, so I decided to go ahead and commit. I actually called and talked to the coaches yesterday," Delans explained. "I decided to commit mainly because I like the coaches a lot and I feel like I fit in well with the offense."
Griffin committed despite not having seen Lubbock in person, but he says that he will definitely be taking a trip to the South Plains in the near future.
"I haven't visited yet, but I plan on visiting soon. We don't have a date set up, but it will definitely be sooner rather than later."
As a junior, Delans put up monster numbers, rushing for 1,962 yards and 33 touchdowns and gaining another 118 yards and 3 scores through the air despite missing three games. He is confident that his success at the high school level will continue once he suits up in the Red and Black.
"I think that I'll fit in really well with Texas Tech's offense. I like playing in the spread offense, and I can catch the ball as well as run it. I think that's an advantage I have to playing tail back; I can either run the ball out of the backfield or I can catch passes.
"Everybody is saying that I'm going to be able to come in and compete for playing time early. The coaches were telling me that, so I think there's a good chance that I could see the field pretty early."
"I'm pretty much done with recruiting. Once I commit somewhere, I'm committed."
