The Player Speaks: RRS’s Matt Clare talked to Weaver, who made it clear that he did not want to miss out on being part of this 2017 class:

“I noticed that Casey (Verhulst) committed earlier today,” Weaver said. “I sat down with my high school coaches and my Mom for a little bit. There are only so many spots and I wanted to take my spot in this Texas Tech recruiting class.

“I called Coach Hays and he was surprised. He told me that he didn’t want me to feel any pressure about making my commitment. I told him that I was ready and that I’m ready to compete.”

Scouting Report: Long and lean as well, a very similar player to Casey Verhulst. Weaver is a big kid and he’s got a huge frame. Very much like his disposition as he seems to be a bit more nasty when it comes to how he plays offensive line. I think that he gets a bit high, lots of times, darn near just standing up, but as of right now, his feet can compensate his standing up. Weaver seems to have all of the prerequisites to play tackle. Big body, long arms and good footwork, he just needs to refine that technique as well as add some serious weight. And that is one thing that worries me about guys like Weaver and Verhulst, is the ability to add weight. Not everyone can do that. Just ask Trey Keenan, who arrived at Texas Tech and never really was able to add enough weight. That’s the biggest fear with long and lean guys like Verhulst and Weaver, they’re going to have to pack on some weight.
