Texas Tech Lands Wichita State Transfer Jamarius Burton

NCAA Basketball: Baylor at Texas Tech

Former Wichita State guard Jamarius Burton is transferring to Texas Tech, he announced on Monday.

The announcement came on Twitter.


Burton is from Charlotte, North Carolina and played two seasons for the Shockers and will be a junior when he becomes eligible at Texas Tech.

Burton did not graduate Wichita State, so he will have to sit for a year before he can play at Texas Tech, which would start in the 2021-22 season, unless he is granted an eligibility waiver.

Burton averaged 10.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game last year for the Shockers in 27.1 minutes. As a freshman, he averaged 6.0 points per game.

Burton was considered a top transfer prospect across the country, choosing the Red Raiders over Marquette, Ohio State, Seton Hall and Xavier.
