  Texas Tech coach Matt Wells on Tuesday officially named Tyler Shough to be the Red Raiders' starting quarterback, confirming an outcome that had been expected for weeks. The 6-foot-5, 225-pound junior from Chandler (Ariz.) Hamilton transferred to Tech in March from Oregon, where he started all seven games the Ducks played last season. He's been competing primarily with Henry Colombi, who started four games for the Red Raiders last season and was a 1,000-yard passer. The others in the conversation since training camp began have been redshirt freshman Donovan Smith from Frenship and true freshman Behren Morton from Eastland, the latter a consensus state top-50 signee.

The Red Raiders also have two-time NJCAA passing leader Parker McNeil, who came to Tech as a walk-on transfer from Troy, and former state top-100 recruit Maverick McIvor. "As I've said for several months now, this is the most talented our quarterback room has been since we arrived here at Texas Tech," Wells said in a statement Tech released. "After evaluating the entire body of work, we feel as a staff that Tyler gives this team the best chance to win. He is well-respected by his teammates, a tireless worker and has developed a strong understanding of what we want to do as an offense. "Tyler's arrival has only increased the competitiveness of our quarterback room as Henry Colombi has put together possibly the best camp of his career. Our staff has confidence in Henry's ability to lead this offense, and I know he will continue to prepare with the same mindset. Donovan and Behren both have bright futures here at Texas Tech, and they will continue to battle for backup reps." - Lubbock Avalanche Journal
