Fisher glad he got the chance to visit

Though most prospects don't commit to a school without having ever stepped foot on their campus, that's what wideout Aaron Fisher did this spring when the Red Raiders extended a scholarship offer his way. The 6-foot-3, 188-pound finally got the chance to check out Lubbock recently and is glad he got the chance to do so.

"Oh man, it was sweet," he said of his visit. "I got to finally see the campus and everything and I loved it. It was awesome. I'm definitely glad I got to finally go."

Fisher saw everything he needed to see on his visit, giving him some peace of mind about making his decision when he did.

"It was a nice feeling just to see everything and realize that it was even better than I thought it could have been when I committed," he said. "It just makes everything easier now, and it's great to already have it off my chest. That's just such a big decision and without having to worry about that all spring, it just made everything so much easier.

One area of life that became less stressful as a result of his decision is recruiting, where Fisher says things have slowed down quite a bit.

"It's been great since I committed," he said of his recruitment. "My coaches got the word out to everyone that I was off the market and thanks to them I haven't had any trouble really with schools bothering me a lot about changing my commitment or anything. It's just been really chilled out, which has been nice. I've still been getting a lot of mail and stuff, but coaches haven't been bothering me or anything."

The star wideout, who ran a 4.43 forty last Thursday, isn't kidding when he says he's been getting a lot of mail either. Despite having been off the market for a few months now, his mailbox is still feeling plenty of love.

"Most of the mail is actually coming from the SEC," laughed Fisher. "It's mainly LSU, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, and some schools like that. Of course Tech still sends the most mail and everything, and then there are some other Big 12 schools too, like Texas A&M and Oklahoma."

While all the letters he's been receiving are certainly flattering, Fisher was quick to reassure Tech fans that he's not going anywhere.

"Oh, don't worry, I'm 100% committed to Tech," he said. "I'm fully committed, and this visit only reaffirmed that. I'm ready to go."

Fisher, who holds offers from Nebraska, Boise State, and Louisiana Tech in addition to the offers previously reported by RedRaiderSports.com, is ranked as the 45th WR in the country and the 46th player in the state by Rivals.com.
