Matt Wells needs help right away in Lubbock and he continues to work the grad-transfer market to try and make that happen.
Texas Tech announced Wednesday the signings of running back Armand Shyne and linebacker Evan Rambo. Shyne has one year of eligibility after he played three seasons at Utah, and Rambo will have two years of eligibility after graduating from Cal, but the NCAA first needs to grant him an extension of his five-year clock.
Shyne was productive at Utah. He finished second on the team in rushing with 512 yards, 120 carries and five touchdowns. He played in 14 games last season after missing all of 2017 and most of 2016 due to injuries.
Meantime, Rambo has played sparingly at Cal, but is coming off his best season in 2018 with 16 total tackles, four for loss and two sacks in 12 games. Similar to Shyne, Rambo missed all of 2017 and most of 2016 with an injury. Rambo has a familiar face in Lubbock in Mark Tommerdahl, who now serves as the Red Raiders associate head coach, special teams coordinator and offensive line assistant. Tommerdahl recruited Rambo to Cal as part of the Class of 2015.
