Texas Tech Hoops Adds Another Piece

Texas Tech basketball coach Tubby Smith is fitting all of the pieces of his 2014 recruiting class together. A three-star point guard from the Dallas area is the latest to commit to the Red Raiders.

Texas Tech basketball coach Tubby Smith is fitting the pieces of his 2014 recruiting class together.

Richardson Berkner point guard Keenan Evans, who announced his commitment via Twitter on Tuesday, is the third prospect to pledge to Texas Tech in the past two weeks.

"I really like the campus, love the coaches and bonded with the team more than other colleges I went to," Evans Said.

Evans, a three-star prospect who averaged 14 points, six rebounds and 3.5 assists per game last season for Berkner, joins fellow three-star commits 6-5 guard Justin Gray (Berkeley Prep, FL) and 6-8 forward Zach Smith (Plano East, TX) in Texas Tech's 2014 class.

"I kind of wanted to see who else would commit with me and after I saw that I was for sure going to," Evans said.

Evans, who visited Lubbock last month, described coach Smith as a good guy and role model, but also likes assistant coach Pooh Williamson, who he's talked with the most and been recruited by the most.

"He's just a relaxed, cool dude," Evans said. "He's funny, I mean you can talk to him about anything. He's a real cool guy and not too old or anything."

Evans added he wants to help coach Smith help turn the program around.

"I'm a scoring point guard, but I can find people and get people open," Evans said. "I'm a leader on the court. I'm very unselfish, so I share the ball, but if I need to I'll score the ball."
