Porter is No. 9 for Tech

Texas Tech picked up a verbal commitment this Friday from Missouri City (Texas) Fort Bend Marshall offensive lineman Maurice Porter.

The 6-foot-5, 285 pound tackle helps fill a void at a position of need for Tech. He will be part of the Red Raiders 2013 recruiting class and is ranked as the 36th overall offensive lineman in the nation by Rivals.com.
