We are starting a new segment here at WreckEmRed, profiling current commits as well as current athletes at Texas Tech. First up for us is Red Raider football commit Tevin Madison, who is 1 of only 2 commits not from Texas or Oklahoma and who was gracious enough to allow me to pick his brain a bit about Lubbock, Texas Tech, football, and life. Tevin played both sides of the ball while at Fayette County High School and also returned punts, and chose the Red Raiders over the likes of Tennessee, Northern Illinois, and South Alabama.
