2014 Sooners legacy wide receiver recruit Jakari Dillard has committed to the Texas Tech Red Raiders, as the in-state schools was the one that has stood out to him the most thus far in his recruitment. Dillard isn’t rated yet, and he camped at TTU on the 6th of June on what was basically a five-day camp tour in the state of Texas to three major in-state programs. On the 8th and 10th, he camped at Texas A&M and Texas respectively.
Jakari Dillard has received offers from Syracuse, Texas Tech, and Mississippi State thus far in his recruitment, and the wideout received interest from Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas A&M, TCU, and Texas.
A 6’4″, 185 pound wideout, the Princeton, Texas standout has the looks of a four-star recruit with his size, athleticism, and speed. Dillard is a track and basketball star at Princeton High as well, and he caught 31 passes for 461 yards and four touchdowns last season- good for an average of about 15 yards per catch.
An Oklahoma target, Texas Tech was able to get Jakari Dillard over in-state rivals Texas and the Longhorns hated rivals in Oklahoma. The receiver has definitely been a hot recruit in the Midlands and among top Big 12 teams, so this is a big get for Tommy Tuberville. Not only that, but the busy Raiders also got a guy early who received national interest- including offers from the SEC and Big East (trying to be kind to the BE here).
What makes things more interesting is that Jakari Dillard is the son of former Oklahoma great- and NFL DL- Stacey Dillard.
