On Monday, head coach Tubby Smith and the Texas Tech Red Raiders upgraded their back court.
3-star junior college guard Devaugntah Williams committed to the Red Raiders.
“I felt like it’s a great opportunity,” Williams told Rivals.com. “I feel like it’s a young team with a lot of potential. They didn’t even play a very good game against Texas, and they still pulled out a win, so I know next year, with a few more pieces, we’ll get a lot of wins.
“I loved (my visit). The environment was good. The staff, like the president, the chancellor, the tutors, the coaches, I loved it. 100 percent. The atmosphere was crazy. I love the support system with the fans and all the people that came out to watch them,” he said. “We hung out with the players, and we all clicked right away. I loved it.”
The 6’3, 200-pound Williams is considered the sixth best junior college shooting guard prospect in the country, the second best junior college prospect in Missouri and 23rd best overall junior college prospect in the class of 2014, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.
William chose the Red Raiders over the Arkansas Razorbacks, among others.
