Texas Tech landed three-star quarterback Taylor Potts of Abilene, Texas, back on March 30, ending the process before it really could get started for the 6-foot-5, 210-pounder. But recently Tech took another talented Texas quarterback Greg McElroy of Southlake (Texas) Carroll. Everybody wondered what that would mean to Potts. Would he stay solid? Is he still heading to Lubbock?
What's the latest?
"I'm still committed to Texas Tech," Potts, who is the nation's No. 12 pro-style quarterback, said. "The whole two-quarterback situation is okay with me. We've let the whole thing settle down and everyone has said what they want to say and now there's not too much to it.

"I'm letting God lead where I go. If that takes me to Texas Tech then so be it. If He leads me to go somewhere else, I will go somewhere else."
Potts said only a few teams have remained in contact with him since he originally pledged to the Red Raiders.
"There aren't any teams really talking to me anymore," Potts said. "Northwestern and Texas A&M are sending me mail, but nobody is calling or anything.
"If Texas A&M offered, I don't know what I'd do. I wouldn't think much about it until after the season was through and the team had accomplished what we want to accomplish first. I'd pray about it and talk to family and friends. I want to go where I feel I'm being called to go so I'm not sure exactly what I'd do."
Potts said he has no worries about how he would fit in at Tech – especially after watching the Red Raiders throw for more than 600 yards last week against Kansas State.
"I like Texas Tech for a lot of reasons," Potts said. "The coaches, the atmosphere, and a bunch of my friends will end up going there. Plus, it's not far from home and they have a great program going there."
"I really like talking to coach (Mike) Leach. He's a lot of fun and just laid back and doesn't seem like he cares too much about anything, but he really is interested. He's just a real laid back guy."
Potts has had a solid senior season on the field.

Midland, being the great team they are, we began playing conservative running the ball and stuff. We ended up winning 31-20. I think I was 12-24 for 230 yards and one touchdown passing, one running."Here to view this Link.
