Wells announces 11 signees to kick off 2019 class

LUBBOCK, Texas – Texas Tech head coach Matt Wells announced the first additions to his initial signing class Wednesday as 11 student-athletes inked National Letters of Intent to join the Red Raider football program.
 
The 11 signees kick off the 2019 class for Wells, who landed a solid core of commitments less than three weeks after being named the 16th head coach in program history. He and his staff will add to that number in February when high school and junior college prospects are again able to sign with prospective universities.
 
"This is a good start to this signing class," Wells said. "The thing that I appreciate about this class is their willingness to open up their homes and their hearts to our staff and just allow us to listen to their story. This is a solid start and there are more to come in January."
 
The early-signing class represents 10 high-school prospects along with a junior-college addition in tight end Travis Koontz, who was the only signee to hail from outside the state of Texas. Tech landed recruits from all across the state, including Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth and West Texas.
 
Below is a full listing of the class along with bios on each signee.
