RedRaiderSports’ Matt Clare spoke with Dyson about Dyson and how he kept in touch with Joey McGuire:
“I have been talking with Coach McGuire since the summer. He was recruiting me while at Baylor and I went for a visit this past summer. He really wanted me there, but they had filled their spots on the defensive line and there wasn’t a spot for me. There wasn’t much he could do, but we stayed in touch and then ended up talking tonight.
“Coach McGuire always checked in on me, and then once he found out about the opportunity to become the head coach at Texas Tech, he texted me and told me that he wanted to offer me a scholarship.”
Dyson is not a finished product now, probably a bit raw at this point, but his size and strength in the high school arena is pretty clear. I think Dyson is projectable, the type of player that gets in the weight room, develops for a couple of years, and then when he’s a redshirt sophomore, you ask where he came from. And Texas Tech has typically done a terrible job of recruiting and developing defensive linemen, but Philip Blidi, E’Maurion Banks, Gilbert Ibeneme, and L.B. Moore are examples of young defensive linemen that are hopefully developing because they’ll need to play sooner than later. The cool thing about Dyson is that he’s very instinctual.
Up next is defensive lineman Syncere Massey.
