Day made the commitment after Tech gave him his first offer.

“It kinda felt right," said Day on his decision. "I’ve been up there, got to meet the coaches and I really liked the atmosphere up there. It’s a young team and a new coaching staff. They told me some things as far as playing, and I just liked it overall, better than anything else.”

Day said he visited Lubbock a few months ago with friend and 2014 football and baseball commit Patrick Mahomes of Whitehouse.

“I’ve grown up with him and played with him my whole life," Day said of Mahomes. "It makes it more comfortable knowing I have a friend up there.”
