Defensive tackle Trevon McAlpine was the third surprise commit of the 2022 class and with this player profile, I’m officially done with the 2022 class.

RedRaiderSports’ Ben Golan talked with McAlpine about his commitment to Texas Tech:

“They just see me as a player who can play all spots. They see me being a dominant player who opposing offenses have to game plan for.”

McAlpine is reunited as a Texas Tech signee with Joseph Adedire. The two were formerly on TCU’s commit list, but will now play their college football in the 806.

“I’ve talked to some of the other signees but me and Joseph have the closest relationship.

How does a tackle that has 101 tackles not get a single SEC offer? How does that work? Seriously, I simply don’t understand how not one team from the SEC offers McAlpine. McAlpine is physically dominant, more physically dominant than just about any defensive video I’ve seen in a handful of years. Strong, quick, agile, likes to tackle, finds himself completely unblocked way too much (not his fault), and is so quick off the line of scrimmage that the offensive player doesn’t have time to get his hands on him. When they do, it doesn’t matter.

With me finishing McAlpine’s player profile, I’m done with the 2022 class until Joey McGuire adds a commit or two in February. I’ve done the 2022 Commitment Page where all of the commits are in one spot, so feel free to check that out.
