HOT 11 RANK POS HT/WT
1

Marlon Williams

Pflugerville (TX) Pflugerville
LB 6-0/225

Williams
is staying late after practice every day and while he's still second
team at weakside linebacker he's pushing everyone around him. His work
ethic and leadership skills are making this football team better. His
emergence will also make

Chad Hill
better in the long run and regardless of who starts,
the backup will see several opportunities.
2

Jake Johnson

Gainesville (TX) Gainesville
OT 6-7/370

The
giant junior college transfer has begun to make his move a week into
workouts. This was a no lose situation for Texas Tech because if Johnson
didn't or doesn't materialize, it's no big deal since he walked on. But
so far the results have been very favorable. Johnson has seen the
majority of his reps at right tackle and is in the mix to crack the
rotation with

Chris Olson
,

Stephen Hamby
and

Lonnie Edwards
.
3

Graham Harrell

Ennis (TX) Ennis
QB 6-3/205

First
off, Harrell is a flat-out stud at quarterback. In talking to another
college coach this week that has some working knowledge of Texas Tech
and this offense he indicated the inexperience at offensive line isn't
as big a deal as everyone is making it out to be. Why? Because Harrell
will get rid of the ball very quickly. Harrell also has this team
focused and on the same page. Every time a practice concludes Harrell
calls the team together they all break in unison by shouting the word
"family".
