Texas Tech Adds 11 in Early Signing for New Football Coach Wells

Texas Tech added 11 players on the first day of the early signing period Wednesday, less than three weeks after Matt Wells became the new Red Raiders coach.

Among the signees were quarterback Maverick McIvor and defensive back Alex Hogan, early commits to the Red Raiders who initially de-committed after Kliff Kingsbury was fired Nov. 25 before meeting with the new coaching staff. Wells was named Tech's coach on Nov. 29.

McIvor's senior season at San Angelo Central was cut short by injury, but as a junior threw for 3,415 yards with 43 touchdowns and ran for 870 yards. He had seven TD catches as a receiver as a sophomore.
