Texas Tech Head Football Coach Tommy Tuberville and his coaching staff continue to get quality recruits for 2011. The latest recruit to the party is James Castleman from Amarillo. In short, Castleman is an absolute stud of a defensive lineman. Texas Tech also got a commitment from linebacker Blake Dees from Spanish Fort in Alabama. Dees was already being recruited by James Willis while Willis was on the Alabama staff. Dees will probably not be a superstar for Tech but should be a solid, productive player.
When these two players are combined with the rest of the recruits that Texas Tech has for 2011, it paints a bright future. The 2011 recruiting class has a chance to be one of Tech’s best ever. There is no way to know how these recruits will pan out, on paper they look pretty good. Coach Tuberville and his staff have done a good job on the recruiting trail since arriving in Lubbock.
Castleman and Dees join a recruiting class that already has QB Michael Brewer, RB Kenny Williams, WR Derek Edwards, WR Javares McRoy, TE Jace Amaro, LB Terrell Hartsfield, LB Devon Hocutt, and OL Tony Morales. There may be four or five four star recruits already committed to Texas Tech. If Coach Tuberville can have a productive season on the field, there is no reason why Tech can’t be in the running for at least a couple more four star type recruits.
