Houston Madison offensive lineman Lee Almanza attended Texas Tech's junior day last weekend and hopes to have impressed the Red Raider coaching staff.
Almanza (6-foot-5, 295 pounds) hit the Houston Independent School District wire as a sophomore, anchoring a offensive line that reached the playoffs. He followed that season with an all-district performance as a junior.
"I really liked their campus and coaches," Almanza said about his trip to Texas Tech. "They have a new offensive line coach and it was cool over there. We went to a basketball game, which was cool also.
[Texas Tech] is my favorite school right now. I am also talking with Houston and Texas A&M."
Almanza attended the Texas A&M junior day where his district-mates Damian Square and Leroy Chevalier of Jack Yates High School verbally committed.
"I'm ready to get this process going and make a decision," Almanza said. "If Texas Tech were to offer, I would take it. I like their style of offense and how they use their linemen. Texas A&M was nice also.
