Niem Stevenson Signs with Texas Tech

Seward County Community College (KS) shooting guard Niem Stevenson signed with Texas Tech on Tuesday just a couple days after making an official visit to campus.

Seward County Community College guard Niem Stevenson signed with Texas Tech a couple days after making an official visit to the South Plains.

Stevenson, a two-time NJCAA All-American, averaged 24.7 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 2.2 assists per game while shooting 51.1% from the field and 36.7% from the 3-point line.

The 6-5 shooting guard is the first signee of the Chris Beard era. Stevenson, who chose Texas Tech over offers from the likes of Oregon, North Carolina State and Texas A&M, will have two years to play two seasons when he arrives. 

He joins Florida all-state point guard Keon Clergeot in the Red Raiders' 2016 signing class as Clergeot inked with Texas Tech during the early signing period back in October.

"He has a good relationship with coach Beard, who is now at Texas Tech," Seward County SID Roy Allen told Scout. "Coach Beard was recruiting him to Little Rock but I think Niem felt he could play at a higher level so he was intrigued when coach Beard went to UNLV for a few days before going to Texas Tech."
