The Player Speaks: The only quote I can find is from RRS’s Will McKay who said that the biggest reason for the commitment was early playing time:
“I just felt it was the best decision for me and my family, and I have a great opportunity to play early here. That’s what it’s all about, just playing.”
Scouting Report: Addison really wanted to hear from Houston and a Texas A&M offer, but they’ve sat tight despite being in Addison’s backyard. Addison even went so far as to attend TAMU’s junior day, but no offer came. Now, this very small and exclusive group of players were invited to be in Lubbock and Addison brought his mother and family all the way from Angleton, which isn’t a short drive, to be in Lubbock this weekend, where Texas Tech very much made a big deal out of offering Addison. This was a family affair, make no mistake.
It’s strange how these things happen as Addison is certainly the type of player that Zac Spavital and David Gibbs are looking for in terms of a defensive back. Long and rangy with good, but not great speed. Length and athleticism makes up for the speed and quickness, plus the length of receivers makes it that much more imperative that Texas Tech get in the business of big defensive backs that are projectable athletes and can play.
Also odd that Addison isn’t really rated at all, which is odd, but I really believe that this is the sort of guy that Spavital likes to find, develop and make into first round picks, see William Jackson, III. That’s who Spavital sells to these players.
Addison hits hard, he seems to stop opposing offensive players straight in their tracks, which is a unique trait for sure. Addison takes a while to get going, but when he does, that long stride makes up some ground.
Oh, and this is what secondary coach Karl Scott posted on Twitter after Addison committed.
