Texas Tech received their 2nd commitment of the day, the 4th of the 2022 class in Alief Taylor receiver Tyler King.

The first thing to notice is that King’s highlight video says that he runs a verified 10.21 100m and a 20.74 200m and that he’s the fastest player in the nation. The only stats listed in his 24/7 Sports profile is 20 receptions for 203 yards and a touchdown for 2020, which ended up being just 5 games.
King is an obvious track guy, so the question is if the speed translates to the field, and yes, I can confirm that King is fast to quite fast. like a lot of sprinters, the speed is effortless, like he’s not moving that fast, but he’s out-running everyone. I’ve also been thinking that Texas Tech has very much gone after very big receivers, other that Myles Price, and sometimes you need a guy that’s going to break the top, your very own Tyreek Hill, and maybe this is the staff trying to build a receiving corps that can do a few different things and receivers that beat you in different ways.
