Texas Tech is racking up lots of transfer market studs.

Tech has landed a commitment from former Memphis commit Davion Warren. Warren was previously at Hampton where he averaged 21.2 points a game to go along with 6.3 rebounds a game and 3 assists a game.

Warren saw a huge jump in his stats from his junior to senior seasons. He improved his scoring by 11 points a game. While his field goal percentage and 3 point percentage both fell, that's expected with how many more shots he attempted.

Not only did Warren improve dramatically on offense, but defensively he was outstanding at Hampton. He saw a jump from 0.7 steals a game to 2.1 steals per game in his most recent season. He is a pest defensively and will fit Mark Adams defense perfectly.

Warren comes in at 6’6 and is yet another lengthy guard like Adonis Arms. He has the potential to be elite defensively and will have a lot of opportunities with Tech.

Warren is at his best around the rim, as that's where a majority of his shots were taken. Tech struggled at times last year finishing around the rim so him coming in along with Chandler Jacobs will be large improvements in that area.

Warren de-commited from Memphis on April 26th after Iowa State guard Tyler Harris announced he would be returning to Memphis. Harris played at Iowa State for 1 year but was at Memphis for the 2 seasons prior.

While Mark Adams is still on the market for big men, the guards room is shaping out beautifully. As of now Techs guards consist of:

Clarence Nadolny

Chandler Jacobs

Adonis Arms

Davion Warren

Chibuzo Agbo

Avery Benson

Undecided: Mac McClung, Terrence Shannon Jr.

If McClung decides to come back, we will have plenty of talent and plenty of matchup options for next year defensively.

Warren has 1 more season of eligibility, so this will be his only season at Tech. With what Tech is building, it’s looking like it could be an extremely successful one.
