Congrats to former Red Raider baseballer Bryce Bonnin who reportedly agreed to a $700,000 deal with the Cincinnati Reds. If that’s the case, then congrats and good luck!

Star Telegram’s Jeff Wilson reports that former Texas Tech baseballer Josh Jung made the Rangers’ 55 man roster to start the season:

The 2019 first-round pick from Texas Tech, Jung was not part of big-league camp in Arizona, but appeared in multiple games as a just-in-case player. As expected, he impressed. Daniels does not expect Jung to play in the major leagues this season, but he is one of the players on the roster who the Rangers want to ensure gets some kind of development time.

SI ranked the Elite 11 quarterbacks and Texas Tech commit Behren Morton is ranked 17th out of 20:

Ideal spread system quarterback with active feet for rollouts and navigating the pocket. Ball glides off of his hand. Velocity could stand to improve. Committed to Texas Tech.

24/7 Sports’ Gabe Brooks talked to Morton about the upcoming Elite 11 competition:

“Growing up I was always watching Elite 11. I knew that if I ever got that invitation to the finals that it was a done deal that I would go,” Morton told 247Sports. “Watching Justin Fields, Trevor Lawrence, and Jalen Hurts and all of these great quarterbacks, to have an invitation to this special event and getting that opportunity to go, that was a no-brainer.”

I joined Rock Chalk Talk’s Andy Mitts last week to discuss Texas Tech’s upcoming game with Kansas. I also discuss quite a bit about the season and if you listen, you can hear where I think Texas Tech will finish this year in the Big 12.
