Texas Tech football picked up a 20th verbal commitment for the 2014 recruiting class this morning when junior college defensive tackle Keland McElrath gave his pledge to the Red Raiders.
McElrath is a 6-5, 290 lb. defensive lineman out of Coahoma Community College in Clarksdale, Miss. A three-star recruit by Yahoo! Sports and Scout, McElrath held offers from Kentucky, West Virginia and Western Kentucky before verbally committing to Texas Tech.
The 2014 Red Raider recruiting class now boasts three defensive linemen, a definite need position for next year. McElrath is the first junior college commit for this class.
