Class of 2017 5-star OL commits to Texas Tech

Class of 2017 five-star offensive lineman Jack Anderson, out of Texas’ Frisco High School, near Dallas, has committed to the Texas Tech Red Raiders. Anderson announced his decision on his personal Twitter page.

The mark of a strong offense is an even stronger offensive line and given how Anderson is 6-foot-5, 285 pounds, he could provide plenty of protection for coach Kliff Kingsbury’s air raid offense once he arrives on campus in a couple of years. On top of Texas Tech, he had received offers from a number of schools including Arizona, TCU, Texas A&M, LSU and Georgia, plus many others.

He won’t step on the field in Lubbock for another two years, but Anderson is the No. 1 guard in his class for a reason and will be a fine addition to the Red Raiders’ line once he suits up.

Texas Tech, however, must now focus on getting back in the win column when it hosts Big 12 rival Iowa State on Saturday. Kickoff is slated for 3:30 p.m. ET.
