    We continue our series of ranking the best players on Texas Tech's roster. Here are Nos. 10-6:

    See the full series at the conclusion of this post.

    5. Ta'Zhawn Henry / So. / RB

    Because of some injuries in the backfield, Henry had to take on a much bigger role than anticipated and flourished. Henry tied starter Da'Leon Ward with 341 rushing yards and had a team-high eight rushing touchdowns. He may not see as much time in 2019 if Ward is healthy, but Texas Tech's future at running back appears to be bright.

  • Fansided: Texas Tech football in top-8 for highly-coveted DE Robert Wooten

    If Matt Wells and the new Texas Tech football coaching staff is going to turn the Red Raiders around, they are going to have to improve the program's fortunes on the recruiting trail. That means they will have to start beating out some respected Power 5 programs on a more consistent basis. That's what Wells will have to do to land 3-star DE Robert Wooten, who has included the Red Raiders in his top-8 schools.

    The 6-foot-3, 230-pounder from Stafford, Texas is rated the No. 36 weak side defensive end in the nation and the No. 119 overall player in Texas according to 247Sports.

  • Fansided: Texas Tech baseball opens Big 12 Tournament with win over KSU

    Perhaps this will be the year that the Texas Tech baseball team finally puts the program's struggles in the Big 12 Tournament to rest. Entering Wednesday's game against Kansas State with an all-time mark of just 19-36 in the event, the Red Raiders won their opening game in Oklahoma City for just the third time in the seven years of head coach Tim Tadlock's tenure.

    But the 7-4 win was anything but easy. After jumping out to a 5-1 lead in the 3rd inning, the Red Raiders had to hold on as Taylor Floyd struck out KSU catcher Chris Ceballos with the bases loaded in the top of the ninth to give Tech the win.

  • Dallas Morning News: Texas Tech roster rankings, Nos. 10-6: This dependable cornerback should provide more of the same in 2019

    We continue our series of ranking the best players on Texas Tech's roster. Here are Nos. 10-6:

    10. Kesean Carter / So. / WR

    Carter had a promising freshman season and if it was any indication on how his collegiate career will be, it was a good sign. He was fifth on the team last season with 26 receptions for 238 yards and should move up the depth chart with Antoine Wesley and Ja'Deion High's departures.

    9. Da'Leon Ward / Jr. / RB

    Ward looked like he was on pace to have a solid 2018 season, but a groin injury somewhat derailed it.

  • Viva The Matadors: Hitter of the Week: senior steps up

    In honor of his last regular season game in his Texas Tech uniform, this week's hitter of the week is senior Cameron Warren.

    On Thursday, he finished 3-for-5 with a double. He was one of four Red Raiders with a multi-hit game. It was his valiant effort that put the Red Raiders on the board in the 11th inning. Down to their final out, Warren started a two-out rally with a single to center. With freshman Dru Baker in to pinch run, sophomore Cody Masters belted a double down the right field line, and Baker hustled all the way around, sneaking his left hand past the catcher's mitt to touch home and tie the game.

  • Dallas Morning News: Texas Tech roster rankings, Nos. 15-11: This linebacker is coming off a breakout year -- and could be primed for another one

    Spring football has passed and the 2019 season is nearly three months away.

    With that in mind, we're ranking the best players on Texas Tech's roster. Here are Nos. 15-11.

    Erik Ezukanma / Fr. / WR

    Ezukanma only played in two games and had two catches last season, but his ceiling appears to be very high. In his three years at Keller Timber Creek High School, Ezukanma had 2,471 receiving yards and 32 touchdowns.

    Adrian Frye/ So. / DB

    Frye broke out in his freshman season in a big way. Frye recorded team-highs in passes defended (10) and interceptions (5).

  • Dallas Morning News: 5 key issues for Texas Tech heading into fall camp: Who will start at running back?

    Spring football has come and gone. Here are five issues facing Texas Tech with fall camp on the horizon:

    Sorting out the running back depth chart

    Texas Tech returns two quality running backs in sophomore Ta'Zhawn Henry and junior De'Leon Ward.

    Ward was last season's starter before injuries limited him to nine games. He and Henry finished tied with 341 rushing yards last season. However, Henry had eight rushing touchdowns compared to Ward's three.

    Matt Wells and the coaching staff will have to figure out who will be the starter.

    Replacing key losses on defense

    Not only did Texas Tech lose some of its vocal leaders on defense, it also lost three of its top producers in linebacker Dakota Allen, defensive back Vaughnte Dorsey and safety Jah'Shawn Johnson.

  • Dallas Morning News: Is Oklahoma defensive coordinator Alex Grinch the missing piece for the Sooners' national championship aspirations?

    Chuck Carlton, Big 12 beat writer for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answered questions about the league in a live chat Wednesday. Here are some highlights.

    Q: Does Bru McCoy step on the field for the Longhorns this season?

    Carlton: Best guess is yes, we will see Bru McCoy, the talent freshman receiver and (very briefly) a USC Trojan, this season. The NCAA has been far more lenient in granting transfer waivers than in the past and Texas has been very cautious about filing. At the same time, there seems to be no rhyme or reason here.

  • Fansided: Texas Tech football may not have 11 am home game this year thanks to FOX

    The good news for Texas Tech football fans is that there's a very real possibility that we may not have to endure any 11 am kickoffs in 2019. The bad news? That would mean the Red Raiders are not very relevant in the Big 12 race.

    This week, the Big 12's primary television partner, FOX, has announced its intention to move its top game of the week to noon eastern. This is reportedly a strategic decision for the network which is hoping its most high-profile game will carry the rest of the day's programming to better ratings than ABC, ESPN and CBS, which have long dominated the college football ratings game.

  • Fansided: Texas Tech football adds 2019 JUCO LB Kosi Eldridge

    It appears that Matt Wells' Texas Tech football program is beginning to pick up a bit of momentum on the recruiting trail as the crucial summer months arrive. Tuesday, the Red Raiders picked up their second commitment in the last four days when JUCO linebacker Kosi Eldridge announced his intention to join the Red Raiders.

    Eldridge, a 2019 prospect who will join the program this summer, is a 6-foot-1, 210-pound outside linebacker from Kilgore Junior College. The native of Denton, Texas has three years of eligibility remaining after playing just one year at Kilgore.

    In addition to Tech, his only other offer was from offer from North Texas.

  • Fansided: Texas Tech football hands out numerous offers at positions of need

    By now, most Texas Tech football fans are more than aware of the program's struggles on the recruiting trail in the final years of the Kliff Kingsbury tenure. That's why many have been closely watching how Matt Wells and his staff put together their first true recruiting class.

    If Wells can show significant improvement in 2020 and bring in a class that is significantly more highly-regarded than the last three Red Raider classes, which have had an averaged ranking of 61.6 in the nation, then optimism among the fan base will begin to rise significantly. And if he is able to bring in a number of quality prospects this summer, he will score a significant string of victories before ever coaching a game at Jones Stadium.
