Sixth Commitment in for LaTech

2015 CB Trey Spencer

Thanks to the last five days, Louisiana Tech is off to a fast start toward its 2015 recruiting class. The Bulldogs added their sixth pledge in that span Tuesday. Scout.com has more right here.

Louisiana Tech enjoyed a big junior day event this past weekend, garnering four commitments. The fifth commitment came Monday from Shreveport (La.) Huntington defensive back Aaron Roberson.

The latest Louisiana Tech pledge is Trey Spencer, a 5-foot-11, 175-pound athlete from West Orange-Stark (Tx.).

Spencer tweeted the news of his commitment Tuesday evening just before 9 p.m.

"Feeling good about verbally committing to Louisiana Tech!" Spencer tweeted.

Spencer plays receiver and defensive back for West Orange-Stark. He caught 10 passes for 208 yards and two touchdowns, plus picked off two passes from the secondary. Spencer projects to defense at the next level, possibly at cornerback.

That's one interesting aspect of Louisiana Tech's first six commitments -- all are defensive prospects.

The first was Tyler (Tx.) Lee linebacker Brandon Durman, who committed Friday after attending a spring practice session. The Bulldogs garnered three more defensive pledges during the junior day weekend from Hahnville (La.) safety Dwaine Thomas, Hahnville defensive tackle Fred Brown, and Shreveport Northwood defensive tackle LaDante Davenport.

Spencer gives Louisiana Tech three secondary commitments along with Thomas and Roberson.

Spencer is part of a fierce secondary at West Orange-Stark, which also boasts Alabama safety commit Deionte Thompson and Texas safety commit Johnny Shaw. West Orange-Stark also produced a Big Ten cornerback signee in the 2014 class in Chris James. The school is the alma mater of Seattle Seahawks all-pro safety Earl Thomas.

Durman and Spencer are early fruits of Louisiana Tech's efforts in Texas. The Bulldogs have been aggressive lately offering players from the Lone Star State. Burleson defensive lineman Kenneth Mann, Nacogdoches cornerback and Ole Miss commit Jaylon Lane, and Manvel cornerback Will Lockett are among recent Louisiana Tech offers in Texas.
