Later Welker was named Oklahoma State Player of the year by USA Today and The Daily Oklahoma All State Player in 1999. Welker was supposedly too small to play at the college level, so he was not recruited heavily while he was in the high school, but later after attending scholarship in Texas Tech University he said about his experience “I was thinking I’d get a scholarship somewhere. When it didn’t happen when it was supposed to, on signing day, I was pretty hurt by it. … In the end, I don’t think I could’ve picked a better school than Texas Tech.”

At the university Welker proved to be a treasure for the Texas Tech Red Raiders football team.

In the first ten games with the New England Patriots, he improved his total for receptions, touchdowns and yardage, having 16 receptions for 110 yards and two touchdowns in the first two postseason games, making 11 receptions in a single game.
