Texas Tech Basketball Notebook: A New Offer; Adams Contract Details; Tyson Decommits

It’s quick.

We’re going to have to quick-hit some notes.

  • I forgot to mention yesterday that Mark Adams’ contract was for 5 years and $10 million.
  • Texas Tech’s lone commit, Jaylon Tyson, decommitted yesterday and committed to Beard and Texas. This shouldn’t be surprising. It is common for players to commit to a coach, especially a high school kid, and not the program. Tyson probably has spent less than a weekend on campus so this is just how things end up happening and it’s okay.
  • Adams offered Northern State 6’8″ forward Parker Fox. Fox averaged 22 points, nearly 10 boards, 2.5 assists and over 3 blocks a game. And as you are getting excited about a possible transfer from another program (yet complaining that a freshman switched allegiances), just remember that there’s most likely a fan who is incredibly sad that a player may be leaving the program that they love. This is just some random Northern State fan who is depressed that Fox is leaving the program.

  • If you’d like to watch Fox play basketball, here you go.
  • I loved Adams response on if Beard attempted to recruit Adams to Texas, “He wanted to give me a middle seat and wanted me to wear orange, and I didn’t want to do either of those things.” My heart is full.
  • Terrence Shannon announced that he would be testing the NBA draft waters, but retain his collegiate eligibility. I hope he can chase his dreams and make all of them come true.
  • I’m not sure what happened, but maybe Kyler Edwards recommitted via Twitter and then decommitted? I went to sleep so I missed quite a bit. I hope Edwards comes back, but if he doesn’t, I’ll wish him the best.
