Report: Pipkins to Transfer to Texas Tech

Texas Tech appears poised to add former four-star defensive tackle prospect Ondre Pipkins.

According to a report from ESPN's Joe Schad, former Michigan defensive tackle Ondre Pipkins will be transferring to Texas Tech.
“I believe they have the best plan for me now it’s all about executing the plan,” Pipkins reportedly told Schad.

A Texas Tech official said he could not confirm the report early Friday, but Pipkins tweeted out confirmation of his intentions to transfer to Tech shortly after this story was originally published.
The 6-foot-3, 317-pound Pipkins will have to sit out the 2015 season and will then have one more season of eligibility remaining to play in 2016.

Pipkins, who was rated as a four-star recruit by Scout out of Park Hill (MO) High School, tallied 24 tackles in 23 appearances the past three seasons in Ann Arbor. His sophomore season was cut short by an ACL injury. He also suffered two concussions at Michigan; one as a freshman and one last spring in practice.

According to this story Pipkins claimed Michigan pressured him several times to retire for medical reasons and was not invited to fall camp. Rather than retire, Pipkins said he wanted to play his senior season and chose to transfer.

The infusion of talent and mass for 2016 is a welcome sign as the Red Raiders are expected to lose several defensive lineman to graduation following this season, including all projected starters.
