Texas Tech QB Henry Colombi Eligible Immediately

NCAA Football: Montana State at Texas Tech

Texas Tech adds some more depth to the quarterback room for this fall with quarterback Henry Colombi now eligible immediately, as first reported by ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg.

Colombi backed up Jordan Love at Utah State the past two seasons. He was a former three-star recruit who started his career at Utah State with none other than current Texas Tech head coach Matt Wells.


Colombi made the announcement he was transferring to Texas Tech last month.  The past two seasons, he appeared in a total of 13 games, completing 53-of-69 passes (77%) for 460 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.  He also ran for 139 yards and another two touchdowns on 27 carries.

Colombi was actually expected to be the starter this fall at Utah State, but the Mountain West Conference ended up cancelling all fall sports.

Colombi will have two years of eligibility remaining and joins a crowded quarterback room led by Alan Bowman and Maverick McIvor, but also includes Brylon Lawson-Young and Donovan Smith.

The Texas Tech Red Raiders recently had a COVID-19 concern with 21 players testing positive, but are continuing to practice. Tech opens the 2020 season on September 12th against Houston Baptist.
