Curious as to what the majors are for the Texas Tech football team? Well, we've got the answers here.

That's a petroleum engineer major (Awe), an art and sciences major (Richards) and engineering major (Winbush) right there.

We had a discussion a while back about the majors of college athletes and it sparked some curiosity as to what the majors were for the football team.  So, I've listed all of the ones that I could find.  This actually took a bit of time because I had to click on a player, look at the major, then write it down, and then go to the next one.  There is a good chance that I may have missed a player, just from all of the clicking back and forth.  Generally speaking, this really isn't all that bad.  Only 2 university study majors and I think you'll find 2 human science majors (I'm guessing something like sociology) and 1 actual sociology major (Justis Nelson).

I also didn't include any true freshmen.  The ones that I did click on simply didn't list a major at all, so I skipped them for the most part.

Again, I'm sure I've missed something, but I'd love your input or notes or thoughts about any of this.

And for the record, I'm quite proud here.  Yes, there are a lot of undeclared players, but a ton of those were true freshmen last year and a large portion of those remaining 8 are actually pretty young too.  Personally, I didn't have a major for the first two and a half years of my collegiate career because I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life (and in some respect, I'm still not sure).  By the time these players get to the point of junior or senior, they've pretty much selected a major that's a pretty good major that they can make a living doing later in life.

The only one that surprised me is that there is maybe some glitch in that Le'Raven Clark doesn't even have a place to list a major.
