Texas Tech gets 2013 commitment

Texas Tech head coach Billy Gillispie landed his first recruit from the 2013 class earlier this week with the verbal pledge of forward Blake Danielak (Liberty Hill, Texas/Liberty Hill H.S.). Multiple sources have reported the commitment.

The 6-foot-7 Danielak is averaging 16 points and 7.5 rebounds per game this season, according to the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal.

"He's a very long kid, and the thing with Blake is he has great upside," Liberty Hill head coach Barry Boren told the paper. "He's a really good shooter. He has shot about 37 percent from the 3-point line this season and 80 percent from the free-throw line."

Danielak is the first 2013 commitment for Gillispie and his staff.
