Jordan Brangers Signs with Texas Tech

South Plains College guard Jordan Brangers signed his letter of intent to play with Texas Tech in a ceremony on Wednesday afternoon.

Jordan Brangers said he was all business Wednesday as he signed his letter of intent to play with the Red Raiders. Brangers, a Lexington, Kentucky native, said no family were able to make it out to the South Plains for the ceremony, but never the less his overriding feeling was contentment.

"It was really good. I'm glad I picked Tech," Brangers told shortly after.

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound guard committed in September following an unofficial visit and then took his official visit to Texas Tech in mid-October. Brangers, known as knockdown shooter and gym rat, is averaging 13.5 points, 3 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.5 steals and has knocked down 7-of-13 (53.8%) 3-point attempts early in the season for South Plains (2-0).

Brangers, who will have two season of eligibility remaining when he hits campus this summer, said he talked with Red Raider head coach Chris Beard after signing.

"I talked to him after and he said, 'Congratulations. Now go win the championship at SPC. Great times ahead for both of us. I can't wait to coach you.'"

Other schools which expressed interest in Brangers include New Mexico, New Mexico State, Washington State, Stephen F Austin, Arkansas State, and Missouri. 

"I'm blessed to be apart of Texas Tech next year and I'm ready to help put the program back on the map," Brangers said.

Trinity Valley (Tex.) College point guard Hyron Edwards also signed with Texas Tech on Wednesday during the early signing period.
