One of the challenges Texas Tech runs into every year is going up against Texas, Oklahoma, Texas A&M and LSU for the very best players. Under Mike Leach, Tech has won some recruiting battles in the past few recruiting cycles, including this year with Under Armour All-Americans and four-star prospects wide receiver Kadron Boone (Tampa, Fla./Trinity Catholic) and defensive end Jackson Richards (Southlake, Texas/Carroll).
