Well that was a heck of a game.

ESPN has their season end report card and the overall grade is a D+ and here’s the summary:

In 2015, the Red Raiders seemed to have turned a corner in Kingsbury’s third season, as they were competitive and exciting on the way to a seven-win finish. But this season proved to be a step back. Tech did have some nice moments in 2016, with the away-from-home wins against TCU and Baylor. The Red Raiders were also very competitive in losses to Oklahoma and Oklahoma State, the top two teams in the conference. But all of that was overshadowed by another year of dismal defense combined with the failure to reach bowl eligibility. Considering the Red Raiders boasted one of the best quarterbacks in the country, this season felt like a waste in a lot of ways. As a result, 2017 figures to be a crucial year for Kingsbury and the program.

Another year of dismal defense. Yeah.

There were a couple of possible offers out there and I can’t be sure if they are real offers or preferred walk-on type of offers. First up is Oklahoma Jones WR Rowdy Warner (6-4/215). You can watch his highlight video right there. The other is Sacshe IR Nate Shelton (6-1/180), who does look the part of an inside receiver and you can watch his highlight video there.
