Trey Keenan, a 6-foot-6, 270-pound Scout.com three-star offensive lineman from Argyle High in Texas racked up scholarship offers from the top conferences across the country.
Schools like Michigan, Arkansas, Arizona, Baylor, Mississippi State, Tennessee and Texas A&M are just some of the upper echelon programs that stepped up to verbally offer.
After considering all of his options he decided to stay in-state and join a program that plays in the new Big 12, but has a little bit of SEC flavor under the tutelage of Tommy Tuberville, who previously coached at Auburn.
"Through a long recruiting process I have made my decision on where I want to go.... Texas Tech."
"GUNS UP RED RAIDERS."
Keenan says he can bench 345-pounds, squat 425 and has a 28-inch vertical jump.
Keenan also competes in track (52.8 shot; 168 discus) and says he’s considering trying to double-sport.
Keenan hopes to major in forestry and reports a 3.1 core GPA and 24 ACT.
Keenan: “I’m quick and I have the ability to go block in the second and third levels. I play very aggressive and I’m more of a go get ‘em kind of guy.
“I’m trying to get some weight on and I want to learn to play with a wider base.”
