Texas Tech Defensive Lineman John Scott Shot

NCAA Football: Baylor vs Texas Tech

Tragedy has struck the Texas Tech Red Raiders family. On Saturday, redshirt freshman defensive lineman John Scott was shot twice outside of a poll party in Lubbock and is at University Medical hospital, according to reports confirmed by Inside the Red Raiders.

There is currently very little information on Scott’s condition and a potential suspect. Per 247Sports, he was a three-star prospect coming out of Hitchcock, Texas and was the 93rd-ranked defensive end in the country. He also had offers from Kansas State, Central Arkansas and others.


Texas Tech has released a statement saying, “Texas Tech Athletics was made aware of an unfortunate incident this afternoon involving Red Raider redshirt freshman defensive lineman John Scott III, who remains hospitalized at University Medical Center (UMC) at this time. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.”
