The Woodlands, Texas defensive end Kevin Mims has returned from his first official visit.
“Things went real good at Texas Tech,” the 6-foot-4, 245-pound Mims said. “I had a good time doing everything.”
Mims said the highlight of the weekend was when he walked toward the locker room on Sunday morning.

“They invited me first thing Sunday morning to come down to the locker room,” he said. “There were about 120 hostess girls there all cheering for me when I came around the corner. Then they showed me a No. 68 jersey that had Mims on the back of it.
“Then they turned on the big screen at the stadium and showed a profile of me including some highlights of me playing. It was really neat.”
Mims had a good time in Lubbock, but he doesn’t want to place the Red Raiders up in the top spot.
“I don’t want to put anyone in the top spot,” he said. “I had a good time and they are close to the top. I still am going to visit Northwestern this weekend (Nov. 7). That’s the only other visit I have set up.”
