Despite some recent issues for Texas Tech with losing players, be it current players Jonathan Giles and Tony Brown to transfer, or in recruiting with the decommitment of Treveon Johnson, coach Kingsbury is still trying to build up some momentum on the recruiting trail. Corey Fulcher’s commitment should help, and he won’t be the only recruit to join Tech’s class in the next few weeks. With the uncertainty around the program, the Red Raiders need some good news and this commitment is the first domino to fall.

THE FULCHER FILE
Fulcher is the fourth player in Texas Tech’s 2018 class, a class that sits at 8th in our Big 12 composite rankings. He is also the fourth receiver to commit, a position that Tech is recruiting very hard this cycle as they lose five to graduation after this season. The Red Raiders brought in only one in 2017. Texas Tech needs help all over the place, but receiver is obviously a priority right now.
Fulcher picked Texas Tech as his only current offer. He lists interest from Northwestern Oklahoma State, and Stephen F. Austin on Rivals, a D2 school, and an FCS school. Texas Tech offered on May 9th, the same day he committed, so it’s pretty obvious that he was excited about the prospects of playing for a Big 12 school. He doesn’t get much exposure because he’s coming from a small high school in Kansas, but Texas Tech really likes what he brings to the table.
So what does he bring to the table? Well, he’s a big bodied, athletic receiver with a natural ability to run and a lot of raw potential. He plays all over the field for his high school, and absolutely has the potential to be a stud, though it will take a lot of work. He struggles with technique at receiver, and will need to be taught a lot of footwork and route related things before he sees the field in Lubbock. His ceiling comparison is a familiar face, Michael Crabtree.
