ESPN’s Max Olson asks the Big 12 Blog Bros about their early impressions from the spring and Olson mentioned Octavious Morgan:

Olson: The early buzz I’ve heard on Texas Tech cornerback Octavious Morgan has been strong, and that’s a big deal for the Red Raiders. He’s one of three touted junior college transfers who arrived this winter to bolster Texas Tech’s struggling secondary, and those guys need to live up to the hype if this defense is going to get back on track and help Tech get back to a bowl game this fall. They need more physical playmakers like him on the back end as soon as possible.

Athlon Sports’ Nicholas Allen has a preview of Texas Tech and I don’t know that there’s much there if you’ve been following along with STP this spring, but if you’re Jonesing for something to read, here you go.
