Texas Tech quarterback Jett Duffey has entered the transfer portal, according to multiple reports.
Duffey will be eligible to play right away for whichever team he chooses to transfer to. Duffey replaced Alan Bowman after the starter went down with a season-ending shoulder injury suffered against Arizona.
Duffey finished the season completing 65% of his passes and was third in the Big 12 with 284 passing yards per game. He threw 18 touchdowns to five interceptions. In conference play, he led the Big 12 with 315 passing yards per game and was second in total offense per game.
Texas Tech finished 4-8 on the season and 2-7 in Big 12 play, but it was mostly the defense that was the bigger issue for the Red Raiders this season.
That leaves Tech with Bowman at quarterback heading into next year, which is fine, however he’s been injured every season he’s played in Lubbock. Other quarterbacks on the roster include Maverick McIvor and Logan Greene.
The NCAA transfer portal was enacted on Oct. 15, 2018, providing athletes a path to explore their options. Players do not need to ask permission from their coaching staff in order to transfer. They just need to request that compliance enter their name. It normally takes 1-2 days for a player to appear following their request.
Schools are free to contact a player without restriction once their name appears in the portal.
