Coach Knight likes big guys who have the ability to step outside and shoot, and Corbin is just that.

"I see him fitting in real well based on what they do at Texas Tech," said Telep. "He may end up playing some SF down the road, but I think he is better suited as a PF that plays out on the perimeter."

With players such as John Roberson, Mike Singletary, Ricardo De Bem, and D'Walyn Roberts coming to Lubbock in the class of 2007, Corbin's playing style will be a healthy addition to the Texas Tech lineup.
