Red Raiders pick up DE commitment (free update)

Lawton (Ok.) Eisenhower duel-threat recruit Jake Ratliff said on Thursday that he has a pretty strong feeling about where he’ll play his college ball and he’s just about ready to make it official.

The talented tight end/defensive end prospect attended camps at Tech, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State and he said it’s more a gut feeling than anything that has him ready to wear the red and black.

“I just like it there. I don’t know what it is really. I like everything about it,” Ratliff said about the Red Raider program. “The coaches treated me and my dad really well and I was really comfortable with them.”

Although he has been recruited to play on both offense and defense, the 6-5, 234-pound standout said the Red Raider staff wants him to play along the defensive line.

“It doesn’t matter to me where I line up. I just want to play,” Ratliff said. “I like defensive end, especially getting to the passer.”

Ratliff picked the Red Raiders over the two in-state schools as well as Texas A&M and Colorado.
