Yesterday, around the 11 o’clock hour, guard Clarence Nadolny committed to Texas Tech:

First off I want to thank God for the talent and the opportunity that he gave me to play basketball. I also want to thank all the schools that have recruited me, all of the efforts that they have put in and the given opportunity to play for their program. With that being said I am proud to announce that will further my academic and basketball career under Coach beard’s staff for the next four years at Texas Tech University #GunsUp Baby

Nadolny is said to be a combo guard, maybe a bit like Kyler Edwards, but that doesn’t mean a ton for Texas Tech as there is not a true point guard. Either way, if Nadolny can handle the ball and not turn it over, he can play. Nadolny has good handles and because of his size, gets to the rim pretty easily. I think Nadolny has a pretty nice shooting form, he sees the entire floor. And these highlights are a year old and from his junior year. So imagine this, but with a year of maturity.

Via ZagsBlog, Nadolny’s head coach at SCI had this to say about Nadolny:

“In my opinion, Clarence is perhaps the most underrated player in the country,” Chris Chaney, head basketball coach at Scotland Campus Institute said. “Down the road people are going to be talking about him more than some of the top-30 or top-40 guys. One of the big things about our program is we try to talk about not having a weakness. (Clarence) doesn’t have a big weakness. That’s a value of his work ethic and working on all parts of his game. Everybody talks about his scoring and big time athletic ability, but he’s also one of the best defending guards in the country too. He likes to rebound, he likes to make plays for other teammates. That’s just being a winning type player. We are extremely proud of Clarence as he pursues the next chapter in his career.”

And in case you were curious, this is your eligibility chart thus far with Nadolny added. There was a need at guard I think for sure, and Nadolny helps those numbers. There is still one spot remaining right now, but there could be other transfers or player movement, so this stuff is pretty fluid up until the players report (and even then it could be fluid).
