Texas Tech, Colorado State, Louisiana Tech and New Mexico are a few others that quickly expressed interest. "The Tech coach said he offered two receivers already, and that if they didn't commit, he'd offer me… Colorado State coach came to practice and was recording me.

He will also be hitting UTEP's satellite camp in Abilene Tuesday, June 5.
