NCAA Lubbock Regional Starts Today. Here we go. The #9 men’s golf team opens the NCAA Lubbock Regional today starts today with the top five teams advancing. If you wan to follow along, you can click here for live results.
Stone Hires Assistant Coach. Head coach Tom Stone has hired Neil Payne as assistant coach for the ladies’ soccer team. Payne was most recently at Real Colorado as the personnel director.
Lady Raiders Basketball
Spears to Vanderbilt. Good luck to former Lady Raider basketballer Minta Spears who will transfer to Vanderbilt and be eligible to play immediately as she has already graduated and she will have two years of eligibility.
Wide Receiver Rankings. The ESPN Big 12 Blog Bros have ranked the wide receivers and have Texas Tech at #5, which I think is accurate considering the fact that there’s Jakeem Grant and some guys that have shown flashes:
5. Texas Tech (5): The Red Raiders know who their five best receivers are. Can they establish a few more? Jakeem Grant and Devin Lauderdale will look to build on their big seasons. Ian Sadler, Dylan Cantrell and Reginald Davis continued to show improvement this spring. Cameron Batson has a chance to be a nice weapon, too, but don’t be surprised if several of Tech’s six incoming receivers crack the two-deep at some point this fall.
Summer Homework. FOXSports’ David Ubben and he writes that Texas Tech needs to become the most annoying person that everyone knows.
Cox-Wesley Talks About His Commitment. SAEN’s Ben Baby talked to one of two of Texas Tech’s newest commits in WR Antoine Cox-Wesley. We do get confirmation that Cox-Wesley missed the first handful of games last year, 5 total, and came up big later in the season and also confirms that he was incredibly excited about his Texas Tech offer:
Cox-Wesley was a freshman during Jinks’ final season with the Knights. Jinks recently told fellow Tech assistant coach Eric Morris about the Steele receiver and Morris came to Cibolo on Tuesday.
Shortly afterwards, Cox-Wesley was holding his first scholarship offer. He didn’t waste any time accepting.
The Steele junior orally committed on Tuesday night. Oral commitments are non-binding. The first day a Class of 2016 football player can sign a national letter of intent is Feb. 3, 2016.
“I was excited,” Cox-Wesley said on Thursday. “I was actually kind of tearing up. I wanted to commit right now because they were the first school to notice me and I really appreciate it.”
Duffey’s High School Coach Talks About His QB. Via KAMC’s Brian Holland (Anyone notice how Holland has really stepped up the recruiting coverage for KAMC? He has and it’s pretty good.) talked with the high school head coach of Texas Tech’s other recent commit in QB Jett Duffey, Kirk Thor. There’s good audio there and talks about how Duffey sees the field and also the note that Duffey intends on graduating early, in December.
