Chris Beard adds perimeter threat to 2017 recruiting class

Guard Avery Benson commits to Tech

NCAA Basketball: Iowa State at Texas Tech Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

Coach Beard added to his first full recruiting class with another commitment yesterday.

Avery Benson, the 6’3” guard from Springdale, AR, will come to campus as a Preferred Walk-On, but will be competing for playing time immediately.

The left handed sharpshooter will attract comparisons to another Arkansas product and former Red Raider, Dusty Hannahs. However, with his potential and a full career ahead of him, he’ll try to carve out a name for himself.

Benson also was being recruited by Arkansas and Colorado, but his visit to Lubbock in April might have sealed the deal.
