A new softball coach.


Texas Tech introduced Craig Snider as the new softball coach. He sounds energetic and excited to be the head coach and those are all good things. I’m pulling for him and the ladies who are part of this program.


No Red Raider basketballers were drafted in last night’s NBA Draft, but Adonis Arms will join the Denver Nuggets and Bryson Williams will join the Miami Heat respectively. Congrats to both and make those opportunities count!


FanNation’s Mike Fisher and Zach Dimmitt term this article as being “inside the pitch” for Texas Tech and Joey McGuire, but I think you’ve read a lot of this before.

24/7 Sports’ Gabe Brooks writes about this week’s commits and really praises Texas Tech’s newest commit LB Miquel Dingle, Jr. and offers a lot of praise to the staff for finding him:

Duncan (S.C.) Byrnes standout Miquel Dingle Jr. joined Texas Tech’s athletic 2023 class this week and gives the Red Raiders another multi-sport prospect with an intriguing long-term projection. A legitimate 6-foot-1, 215 pounds with a 6-foot-5 wingspan, Dingle’s profile as a modern off-ball linebacker is promising. Not only does he own the physical specs for that designation, his limited sprints data include a 10.92-second 100 and 200-meter times of 22.05 and 22.41. He’s also the reigning South Carolina Class 5A state champion in the 110-meter hurdles (13.56 personal record) and counts a 23-foot, 1-inch long jump on his ledger as well. Debuting as a high three-star 88 and top 40 linebacker on 247Sports, Dingle’s upside is clear to us, and Texas Tech deserves credit once again for landing another impressive athlete.

Also mentioned a bit further down is offensive lineman Nick Fattig who I think is projected by some to be a fit at Texas Tech.
