Men’s Golf to Make 14th NCAA Appearance. Congrats to the men’s golf team as they were the second seed in the 13-team NCAA regional at the Rawls Course, starting May 14th through the 16th. This is the 14th consecutive bid for the golf team to the NCAA Tournament and this is the first time in program history that they will host an NCAA Regional.


Softball’s Miles Named Scholar Athlete of the Month. Congrats to Kierra Miles, who was named the Red Raider Club Scholar Athlete of the month.


Baseball Ranked #25. The baseball team is the 25th best team in the nation, according to the Collegiate Baseball Writers’ Association. I still think that Texas Tech is on the outside, looking in, for an NCAA Tournament bid. With a week off, it is hopeful that Corey Taylor and Dylan Dusek get healthy with the week off.


Preview with Saturday Edge. Hey all, I did a short preview with Saturday Edge over the weekend and one of the things that I asked at the end was if the over-under of 6.5 is the perfect over-under.

Possible Red Raiders. Wreck’Em 24/7’s Michael LaBarre has his weekly possible Red Raiders, with looks at the 2015 and 2016 football and basketball updates.

ESPN’s Post-Spring Power Rankings. ESPN’s Jake Trotter has his Big 12 post-spring power rankings and he has Texas Tech 8th overall. I think West Virginia, Texas, Kansas State and Texas Tech are all going to have an opportunity to be anywhere between 4th through 8th.

Top Senior Prospects. NFL’s Chad Reuter has his top senior prospects and lists Le’Raven Clark right out his top 15 and in the “20 more worth watching”:

Le’Raven Clark, OT, Texas Tech: Clark (6-6, 313) has started 38 straight games for the Red Raiders, two years at left tackle and his freshman season at right guard. It’s unclear where Clark’s best position will be at the next level; he flashes the lateral agility and recovery speed to play on the edge against college pass rushers, but he might be best inside where he can lock on and create creases for the running game.
