One of the members of Texas Tech’s 2012 Class, Trey Keenan, is extremely happy about his status as a Red Raider commit. He talked to Scout.com about when he will visit and his development on the field as a senior.

Trey Keenan, has come a long way with both his physicality and his play.

A 6-foot-6, 270-pound Scout.com three-star offensive tackle from Argyle High School, Keenan is solidly committed to Texas Tech and has helped lead his team to a 4-1 start in his senior season.

Coming off of a tough loss last week – their first of the young season - Argyle now has a bye week to get back on track.

“We are just going to focus on fixing the downs from last weekend. We are ready to get back at it,” he said.

Keenan has not just gained experience but has put on extra weight that offensive tackles need to be more of a threat to the opposition’s defenses.

“Well, I’ve put on about 20 pounds, so I’m playing at around 270 right now,” he said. “Playing with more experience has helped me to relax and just play. I’ve also gotten better at reading the defense.”

Though he has received offers from schools all over the country – including Arkansas, Baylor, Kansas State, Michigan, Purdue and several others – Keenan just couldn’t distance himself from what attracted him to Texas Tech.

“It had that West Texas attitude and I felt right at home,” he said. “I grew up a Tech fan, always playing as them in the video games. It just felt like a perfect fit.”

Being a pretty stable commit to Texas Tech, Keenan said the other schools recruiting him have backed down a bit. He has no plans for other visits at the moment but may consider some eventually.

“Some coaches still send me some mail here and there, but generally they understand my commitment to Tech. I might still consider some other visits, but for now I’m pretty solid with where I’m at,” he said.

Keenan has yet to make an official visit to Tech.

“We are still waiting for the coaches to decide when our visit will be. Most likely January,” he said. “They want to find a weekend where all the commits can come together so we can just hang out a little bit and get to know each other.”

Though no official visits have been decided, Keenan is planning on making a couple of trips to see his future team play.

“We are going to try to make it next weekend to watch them play Texas A&M, and possibly Oklahoma State,” he said.
