Red Raiders Strike Again

Pat Knight and the Texas Tech Red Raiders secured a commitment from power forward Jordan Tolbert.

Pat Knight scored a strong commitment from a key in-state target. Fort Worth (Tex.) All Saints Episcopal Jordan Tolbert picked the Red Raiders. The 6-foot-7 power forward has the explosive bounce in the lane and should be a factor for Knight's team.

Tolbert played alongside center Cannen Cunningham with Brandon Bass Elite last summer. Last weekend, he visited Tech's campus and that sealed the deal.

"My whole visit went well," Tolbert said. "The school as a whole, I just like it. My parents liked it."

As a junior, Tolbert averaged 16 points and 10 rebounds. He said Texas Tech plans on taking advantage of his versatility.

"They plan on me doing more than one thing on the court so I can be used in all ways."

Tolbert cancelled a scheduled visit to Arizona State for this weekend. He also considered Western Kentucky, Wichita State, SMU, Penn State, Boise State and Colorado.
