Inside receiver Sterling Galban committed to Texas Tech yesterday after previously committing to Iowa State earlier in the year. Galban’s commitment makes it 20 overall for the 2018 class.

Galban spoke to RedRaiderSports’ Matt Clare as well as A-J Media’s Carlos Silva, Jr. about his commitment and this quote is from Clare’s artlce:

“Texas Tech is really a perfect fit for me as a slot receiver,” Galban said. “The offense they run and everything about the program is a fit for me. It is somewhat close to home, and that did give them an advantage. Coach (Emmett) Jones is a really cool coach and he just told me this offense is a perfect fit for me. Coach (Kliff) Kingsbury and I have a great relationship too. I really have a great relationship with all of the coaches and they are all very straight forward with me.

“I will graduate from high school in December, then I plan on enrolling early at Tech and joining the team for spring practice. After talking with the coaches, I feel like a few guys they have at wide receiver could leave and I can get there in the spring to possibly earn some early playing time. I return punts and kick offs now, and that is something Coach Morris and the coaches see me doing for the Tech special teams as well.”

It should be noted that Galban made his highlights on Hudl private so we don’t have anything current. I guess I should have watched highlights before he made them private.

I did find these highlights on the YouTube.

And you can also check out his sophomore highlights.

Galban plays lots of outside receiver in Burnet’s sets, which is common in high school. Galban is yoru prototypical inside receiver. Good quickness and definitely seems to understand the concept of finding open space as he does that very well. That’s always one of those more advanced things that you don’t really appreciate sometimes. You can also check out Galban’s track stats where he runs the 100m and both relays. Galban’s fastest time in the 100m is 10.58 and that moved him onto state from what I can tell.

Sterling, welcome to Texas Tech and git your Guns Up!
