Yesterday in the morning practice recap that with the new offer to Garland Lafrance that this seemed like a situation where Brumfield was maybe looking else where, but then Brumfield ended up committing in the early evening. Let me know if you want me to work my voodoo on any other potential commits.

Brumfield did later correct himself and chalked it up to a rookie mistake, re. the University of Texas Tech in his tweet. Last year, Brumfield ran for 1,080 yards on 207 carries with 18 touchdowns and he’s run for over 4,239 yards in his career. RedRaiderSports’ Drew Kohnle and A-J Media’s Carlos Silva, Jr. both talked with Brumfield, so take your pick. This is from Kohnle’s article and about what swayed Brumfield’s pick:

“The schools that I chose to decide between were all great schools, but coach Juluke had a big role in my commitment in the end. I think just having that relationship with Juluke is what helped make my decision and it is ultimately what pushed me towards the Red Raiders.”

“When I gave the coaches a call and told them I wanted to commit there, they were all really excited which was very exciting for me. The coach who was looking forward to it the most was actually the o-line coach. He was so hyped about it. That is my guy, so I had to make sure to talk with him and chat it up with him. He was so excited.”

Brumfield is kinda already a complete back for what Texas Tech does. He’s already got the size and the speed that you normally associate with what Texas Tech does on offense. Brumfield blows past defenses and he runs between the tackles very well. In fact, he hits the hold really fast, almost too fast if a play is going to develop, but I’d rather have it this way than any other way. Brumfield doesn’t let defenders pull him down easily and he’s very much accustomed to running through defenders as well. Probably not the fastest back, but given what Brumfield brings to the table, and all of the other things he does, that’s of little concern.

Devin, welcome to Texas Tech and Git Your Guns Up!
