I am almost all but sure that I normally do this when a player commits, but we’re about 9 months after the fact and I’m just now getting to the patented (not really) eligibility chart where you can count the scholarship available and where Texas Tech basketball sits in terms players available. I’ve created the commitment page for 2020 where you can find this information all of the time. Just take a look at the header of the site.
Let’s get to it.
I’m A Map. I’m A Map.
Point of clarification is that Nimari Burnett is from Chicago, Illinois, but he’s currently playing in Napa for Napa Christian’s program that’s called Prolific Prep. A tad bit confusing, but that’s what’s happening.

This is where things get interesting. Texas Tech has only used 12 scholarships this year, Deshawn Corprew’s dismissal left an open spot and so that means that Texas Tech could add another mid-season transfer, but that can’t really happen because Texas Tech’s 2020-2021 roster is completely full with 13 scholarships. And as you’ll note, there is only one scholarship available for the 2021 class (and that’s technically the 2021-2022 roster). And there’s so much youth that there is only 2 spots for the next class! And to be clear, there is almost always a transfer, going out and coming into the program and the roster will change significantly from where we sit today. It’s still fun (at least for me) to take a look at things.
