Texas Tech basketball coach Chris Beard’s 2017 class still sits at five - three JUCO and two high school players. The last recruiting roundup featured current commits Jarrett Culver, Daniel Mading, and Hyron Edwards. This week we review the remaining two in the 2017 class, Jordan Brangers and Josh Webster, as well as the newest scholarship offer that was extended.
This week, Beard extended an offer to Cedrick Alley, out of Klein Forest High School in Houston, to join the 2017 class. Alley currently has several offers, but the big ones are Texas A&M, Houston, and Boise State. He seems to be a bit of a late bloomer with Tech and A&M, since both are just now offering in the final months of his senior year. Alley is a 6’6 forward that would bring some good size to Tech’s lineup and he can handle the ball really well. Alley would be a fantastic pickup this late in the recruiting process.
Brangers committed to Texas Tech back in September of 2016. He just finished up a very successful season at South Plains College where he received numerous postseason awards.

Brangers, originally from Kentucky, is a shooting guard and averaged 21 points and 3 rebounds a game this season at South Plains College. If he can make a quick transition to division one basketball then his offensive impact will be felt immediately. You can check out all of his South Plains College stats here.
Webster is the second commit from South Plains College and signed with Tech in November 2016. He will come in as a role player and will probably handle the point when in the game. In 2016-2017 Webster averaged 9.9 points and four rebounds a game. You can check out all of his South Plains College stats here.
