Days before Signing Day, a couple of friends decided that they didn't want their friendship on and off the field to stop. That caused a major shakeup for the recruiting process of Rajon Henley and the final outcome was a switch in his commitment early Tuesday morning.
Three-star defensive tackle Henley had spoken with his friend, Texas Tech commit Dewayne Baziel about his plans and let his coach know that he wanted to check with another coaching staff to see if there was a spot available.
"Rajon always liked Texas Tech, he asked me to call to see if they had a scholarship for him, they did, and he committed to them," Ball coach Ron Holmes said. "Those two have played football together since they were kids. They didn't want that to end."
"So today, Rajon made that dream of playing together in college come true."
Rated as the No. 38 defensive tackle in the country, Henley had previously committed to Oklahoma State but was still taking a look at both the Red Raiders and TCU.
Playing with his long-time friend and teammate was too much to pass up.
"When they went their separate ways for college and committed to different schools, it really affected their friendship," Holmes said. "Rajon started talking to Dewayne about it, and it just came around."
Henley adds to a very big recruiting class for Texas Tech with only one day to go until Signing Day.
