HOUSTON – Everyone knows that recruiting trends are like the stock market.
There are ups and downs. There are trends. When it comes to recruiting it follows that same pattern as there are years where more talent stays home and in other years the majority of the best talent leaves the borders of the Lone Star State.
Well, the best of the 2020 class of Houston recruits seem to be trending towards leaving Texas.
This isn't the first time that power programs outside of Texas – which has Texas, Texas A&M;, Baylor, Texas Tech, SMU, North Texas, Rice, University of Houston, UTEP, UTSA as quality programs to go play college football at – haven't been able to lure the best from the state.
It was the belief that they showed in him early that helped JD Head make the decision.
The Pearland quarterback over the weekend verbally committed to Louisiana Tech and adds a solid arm to the 2020 recruiting class for the Bulldogs.
"They made me feel at home," Head said. "It's a special place with a winning culture. Everyone I talked to loved it. I think they liked the stuff you don't see. The leadership, knowledge of the game and how I get along with people. I think that's what sets me a part from other guys."
