Crockett’s Allen Horace Offered By Texas Tech
The sixth Division I FBS scholarship offer came in Sunday for Crockett 2020 defensive end Allen Horace Jr.
The Bulldogs' playmaker reported via Twitter that Texas Tech has offered.
Horace (6-5, 230) was previously offered by Arkansas, Baylor, Houston, Nebraska, and Oklahoma State.
As a junior, Horace helped Crockett finish 7-4 in 2018 and reach the bi-district round of the Class 3A Division I playoffs.
Horace is a talented athlete, who also contributes on the offensive side of the ball at wide receiver, and on the basketball court as well.
Last May at the sixth annual ETSN Combine at APEC in Tyler, Horace recorded an impressive laser-timed, 40-yard dash time of 4.83. He also had an eight-foot, four-inch broad jump, and a vertical of 31 inches, while putting up 20 bench-press reps at 185 pounds.
Texas Tech just hired Matt Wells as its next head football coach. The Red Raiders, who compete in the Big 12, were 5-7 last season.
Horace, like all juniors, is first eligible to sign with any program that offers him in December of 2019.
