Three Preferred Walk-On’s Commit. Kind of a busy day for preferred walk-on’s.

* It started with Lovejoy safety/receiver Chief Collins (6-0/180).

RedRaiderSports’ Ben Golan talked with Collins, who is the son of a former Red Raider footballer, Chad Collins.

* Up next was Argyle receiver Cole Kirkpatrick (6-1/180). In Kirkpatrick’s senior year, he caught 69 passes for 1,301 yards and 17 touchdowns and you can check out his senior season highlights on Hudl. RedRaiderSports’ Ben Golan talked to Kirkpatrick, both of his parents went to Texas Tech so that’s two legacies thus far.

* The third commit is Grapevine receiver Ben Gair (6-1/185). Gair caught 67 passes for 861 yards and 13 touchdowns and you can check out Gair’s senior season highlights on Hudl.
