Texas Tech won a massive recruiting battle on Monday with 2024 four-star offensive tackle Ellis Davis shutting down his recruitment and pledging to the Red Raiders.
The 6-7, 275-pound prospect out of Prosper (TX) took his official visit to Lubbock over the weekend, and apparently it went well enough that Davis decided he doesn’t need to see anything else.
Davis is the No. 20 offensive tackle in the class, and the No. 42 overall player in the state of Texas. As one of the top offensive line prospects in the country, Davis holds offers from Stanford, TCU, Auburn, Florida State, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Oregon, Penn State, Tennessee, and Texas A&M, among others.
Davis told 247Sports that he’s always been high on Texas Tech and loves the atmosphere in Lubbock.
“People have been asking me that nonstop, but I haven’t been to another place like that,” he said. “The energy of Texas Tech is different. It truly does feel like home. I feel like the players there are truly allowed to be themselves and it’s one big family. Every coach on the staff is part of it. There’s not a single one of them that you don’t talk to. There’s not a single one of them that the players are iffy about. I asked multiple players about every single coach and they all had great things to say. Since day one they’ve been extremely welcoming and caring. It just feels like a big family there and that’s really important to me.”
Davis is the 10th commitment for the Red Raiders’ 2024 recruiting class and their third overall four-star commitment in the cycle. With Davis’ commitment, Texas Tech holds the No. 22 overall class in the nation, and the No. 1 class in the Big 12 at this time.
