Spring Westfield tight end Sandy Riley went up to Texas Tech for a one-day camp, and came home with a scholarship offer.
“I really liked the Texas Tech coaching staff and the school,” he said. “I wouldn’t mind redshirting my freshman year either, to get settled into college life and school. I could commit early, but I’d like to take some visits in the fall.”
Riley (6-1, 241-pounds) is also being pursued by Baylor and North Carolina, Arkansas and SMU. Baylor held a one-day camp on Westfield’s campus last weekend, which Riley attended. He will also be attending a one-day camp at North Carolina and for TCU at North Shore High School in Houston.
He is participating with his team in seven-on-seven tournaments around Houston and continues to work out. He plans on gaining 10-15 pounds this offseason.
Riley’s receiving abilities will be showcased more this season, since the Mustangs have gone through a coaching change. Former offensive coordinator Corby Meekins has taken over the Westfield reigns, and has a more spread philosophy.
“I’m excited because I think we are going to open it up more this year,” he said. “We have the quarterback and the receivers to do it.”
