BREAKING: Nimari Burnett commits to Texas Tech

New, comment

The five-star combo guard sets eyes on scarlet & black

Nimari Burnett, a native of Chicago, selected Texas Tech above Alabama, Oregon, and Michigan. BOOM!

Burnett is a strong combo guard that offers a high-level of offense without skimping on the defensive end of the ball - which is undoubtedly what drew Beard in quickly. The success that Texas Tech basketball has seen over the past few years is paying dividends by bringing in higher level talent to the 806. Burnett’s commitment brings Beard’s top-100 recruits to three - with no sign of slowing down. In an interview regarding how he would make his choice, Burnett commented “I want to play with great players. The biggest thing for me is to win.”

Burnett is no. 19 on the ESPN 100 big board, and also the highest rated recruit for Texas Tech in that ESPN recruiting record. His commitment also brings Texas Tech’s recruit ranking to 5th in the nation for 2020, per Rivals. Wreck Em!
