Signing Day 2013: Texas Tech

Tommy Tuberville is no longer the head coach at Texas Tech ... but that didn't seem to hurt recruiting.

First-year coach Kliff Kingsbury staff got a late start recruiting but says he and his young staff signed players who will fit Texas Tech's immediate needs on the offensive line.

Kingsbury said Wednesday that some of the five offensive linemen could play right away. He also stressed speed on defense and offense and believes his staff, some of whom played with him at Texas Tech, accomplished that.

Kingsbury, a former Red Raiders standout quarterback who last year coached Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel at Texas A&M, was hired in December after Tommy Tuberville left for Cincinnati.

Rivals.com ranked the Red Raiders signing class 50th, a significant drop from Tuberville's last two years when the website ranked them 26th in 2012 and 20th in 2011.
