  01/02/21 - Jesiah PierrerFr/2024, Texas Tech, 6-2, 242 (DS#999 ILB) + More +

  Mining the NCAA transfer portal continues to be a component of Texas Tech coach Matt Wells' team building. The Red Raiders' latest addition by that means is a defender from the SEC. Jesiah Pierre, a 6-foot-2, 242-pound linebacker from Florida, announced on New Year's Day that he has committed to the Red Raiders, less than two weeks after he had his name put into the portal. Pierre was a redshirt freshman this season and will retain that class status next season with the NCAA not charging any player a year's eligibility for 2020. He was credited with eight tackles for the Gators this season. - Lubbock Avalanche Journal

  01/02/21 - Josh BurgerrSr/2022, Texas Tech, 6-3, 295 (DS#999 OG) + More +

  Josh Burger always wanted a chance to play college football at its highest level, in a power-five conference. Texas Tech gave Burger that opportunity last year, and the seasoned offensive tackle is going to make it last as long as possible. Burger announced Saturday he will remain with the Red Raiders in 2021, taking advantage of the chance all seniors have to return for another year because the NCAA isn't counting the pandemic-disrupted 2020 season against any player's eligibility. Burger, a 38-game starter, is the ninth Tech senior planning to return. Five are starters on defense and two on offense. - Lubbock Avalanche Journal

  01/02/21 - Zech McPhearsonrSr/2021, Texas Tech, 5-11, 195 (DS#33 CB) + More +

  Zech McPhearson will try to cash in on the breakout football season he put together in 2020. The Texas Tech cornerback announced Thursday he is declaring for the NFL draft. McPhearson is tied for second in the Big 12 with four interceptions - Oklahoma safety Tre Norwood took the lead in Wednesday's Cotton Bowl with his fifth - and McPhearson is fifth in the conference in passes defended with 10. The senior from Columbia, Maryland, also scored touchdowns with returns of a blocked field goal at Iowa State and a fumble against West Virginia. - Lubbock Avalanche Journal

  Texas Tech linebacker Jacob Morgenstern announced Monday he will stay with the team for 2021. Morgenstern was credited with 32 tackles and 4 1/2 tackles for loss in his first season after coming to Tech as a graduate transfer from Duke. Morgenstern is the eighth of 17 seniors, including four full-time and one part-time starter on defense, who have said they'll be back in 2021. The Texas Tech football team will have plenty of candidates for comeback player of the year next season, though not in the traditional sense of players returning from injury or some other misfortune to have a noteworthy season. Instead, the Red Raiders have seniors taking advantage of the opportunity afforded by the NCAA to come back for another senior season in 2021. - Lubbock Avalanche Journal

  12/23/20 - Marquis WatersrSr/2022, Texas Tech, 6-0, 200 (DS#45 SS) + More +

  Among the few defensive starters who won't return for Texas Tech in 2021 is safety Thomas Leggett, a senior who declined the extra year of eligibility available to all NCAA players. The Red Raiders might have already landed Leggett's replacement, or at least a key piece for the secondary. Marquis Waters, a three-year starting safety at Duke and one of the Blue Devils' top three tacklers for three years in a row, announced Monday he is coming to Texas Tech as a graduate transfer. He started 35 games for the Blue Devils. To put that in Tech terms, that's three fewer than Jack Anderson and DaMarcus Fields and one fewer than Eli Howard.

Waters checks a couple of boxes that Tech coach Matt Wells either likes or has been forced into: He arrives via the transfer portal and he helps the Red Raiders be "old" in terms of experience. Listed by Duke at 6-foot-1 and 200 pounds, Waters was the Blue Devils' active career leader in snaps played at the end of the 2020 season. - Lubbock Avalanche Journal
