Madison Akamnonu announced his commitment to Texas Tech on Saturday via Twitter.



Akamnonu, rated as a four-star offensive tackle by Scout.com, chose the Red Raiders over offers from Arizona State, Arkansas State, Baylor, Colorado State, UConn, Houston, Kansas State, Maryland, Mississippi State, Missouri, Nebraska, North Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Southern Mississippi, TCU, Texas, Texas State and Wake Forest.

The 6-foot-5, 270-pound athletic offensive lineman is ranked as the No. 20 offensive tackle and No. 219 overall prospect in the country for the 2015 recruiting cycle by Scout.

Akamnonu is the fourth offensive lineman to commit to Texas Tech in the the class and the third four-star tackle. The Red Raiders now have a five-star quarterback, a four-star 200 meter Texas state track champion running back, three four-star offensive linemen, a three-star offensive lineman and a three-star inside receiver committed on offense.

Tech also has commits from a four-star defensive tackle, rated as one of the top 50 overall prospects in the nation, and a first-team all-state linebacker on defense.

The Arlington Bowie standout is Tech's fifth Scout Top 300 commit and sixth four-star or better pledge of the 2015 recruiting cycle.
