LAJ’s Don Williams writes that head coach Kliff Kingsbury is worried about the health of Justin Stockton and is looking for a graduate transfer at running back:
“We’re bringing in Nisby, and then I anticipate bringing in some sort of grad transfer as well, just to have more depth,” Kingsbury said. “I wouldn’t say a guy has established himself as the starter coming out of spring, and so that’ll be something we try to solidify in fall camp.”
Kingsbury has somewhat talked about this and any graduate transfer is most likely going to be just a guy, not anything that’s going to set the world on fire. Your best bet for someone that’s going to come in and be good is JUCO running back Desmond Nisby.
Texas Tech offered Fresno, California quarterback Adrian Martinez yesterday, a 6-2/185 quarterback that was previously committed to Cal. An hour or so later, Martinez was offered by Oklahoma, so the odds immediately became tougher. Martinez spoke with ITRR’s Zach Tanner about his conversation with head coach kliff Kingsbury:
“He was just telling me about how my skillset would fit in their offense. He thinks that I would be a superstar in that type of system and the offense he runs there. He really takes pride in their development of quarterbacks there. I was definitely honored to get the offer from him knowing that he puts a lot into his craft.”
The AP has one player from each Big 12 team and the one for Texas Tech is Octavious Morgan:
CB Octavious Morgan. The junior college transfer has already been called “a real Big 12 cornerback” by Texas Tech coaches. He had 42 tackles and three interceptions last season at Butler Community College. Morgan was a physical presence throughout his first spring practice with the Red Raiders, who in the past have given up as many points and yards as they have put up with their big-play offense.
