Texas Tech’s roster is really starting to take shape, and once again, Chris Beard looks like he is building a monster in Lubbock.

It started on Saturday, when Stephen F. Austin grad transfer T.J. Holyfield, a 6-foot-8 forward that averaged 12.9 points, 6.4 boards, 1.3 blocks and 1.1 steals while shooting 41.2 percent from three, announced that he would be playing his final season at Texas Tech. That was a good pickup, but not as important as what Beard added on Wednesday evening. That’s when Chris Clarke, a grad transfer from Virginia Tech, committed to play his final season of eligibility with the Red Raiders.

Texas Tech is working hard to alter the state's reputation at the college level. Bound for the Final Four for the first time in school history, Tech is also the first Coaches picked the team to finish seventh in the Big 12 after losing first-round pick Zhaire Smith, senior guard Keenan Evans and two other starters.

Virginia Tech has suspended senior wing Chris Clarke indefinitely, the school announced on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon. The 6-foot-6 Clarke has been a key two-way wing for the Hokies the past few seasons as Virginia Tech , once again , finds itself in the NCAA tournament picture this preseason.

Clarke could not be a more perfect fit for Texas Tech. At 6-foot-6, he’s a tough and physical combo-forward known for what he can do on the defensive end of the floor. Playing in a system that is predicated on playing small and built around defense, he is exactly the piece that Beard needed.

Those two along with Khalid Thomas should give Texas Tech a solid frontcourt in addition to a perimeter attack that should have the talent to be able to survive the loss of Matt Mooney and Jarrett Culver. Davide Moretti is only going to get better and Deshawn Corprew and Kyler Edwards are ready for more minutes more shots. Both were solid in the minutes they played last season, their first with the Tech program.

And that’s before you factor in Jahmius Ramsey, a tough, top 30 guard from Arlington, Texas, that should be able to fit in seamlessly with Texas Tech’s program.

Oh, and they are still in the mix for R.J. Hampton, a top five player in the Class of 2019.

I guess the lesson is that you never doubt Chris Beard.

McLane Carter, a graduate transfer from Texas Tech, announced Sunday night that he will finish out his career with the Scarlet Knights. Carter, who began the 2018 season as the starting quarterback for TTU, has one season of eligibility remaining.

However, he suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 1, creating an opening for freshman Alan Bowman to grab hold of the top spot.
