Coming Up. This week, Michael LaBarre will start his end-of-year top 10 lists, which are always fun to debate. Travis has a post this morning that I’ll get up at 9 or 10 and I’ve got the second half of my thoughts on the all-conference and honorable mention players going up around lunch.

Offseason Work Continues.

Morgan Medically Retires. Defensive back Octavious Morgan has decided to medically retire. Morgan played his junior year in 2017, but was injured in August of last year and was not able to make it back on the field.

Texas Tech had released a statement on Friday that said that Morgan would stay on scholarship and graduate, part of that statement from A-J Media’s Don Williams:

β€œIt’s unfortunate Octavious will not be able to finish out his career on the field,” coach Matt Wells said in Tech’s announcement. β€œHe is well-liked by his teammates and our staff, and our program wishes him nothing but the best as he finishes his degree.”

Lane No Longer With Program. Via A-J Media’s Don Williams, it appears that the Jaylon Lane expirament is officially over for Texas Tech as he is no longer with the program. Lane did not play during the 2018 season, but with the hiring of Matt Wells, Lane practiced during the spring.
