Kevin McCullar List Kansas, Gonzaga as Final Two, NBA Still Top Option

NCAA Basketball: Texas Tech at Kansas

College basketball is changing by the day, and this latest decision from former Texas Tech basketball player Kevin McCullar Jr. is another example of that.

McCullar announced last week he would be entering the transfer portal, but that his focus was still on playing in the NBA. Then, on Sunday, McCullar announced that his plans are still to play in the NBA, and while that is his first option, if he comes back to college, he will play at Kansas or Gonzaga.

Here’s the post he shared on Twitter.


Kevin McCullar was one of the players who announced he would return to Texas Tech immediately after Mark Adams was elevated to head coach last April, making him the last link to the Red Raiders’ 2019 national championship game run.

McCullar appeared in 78 games over three seasons with Texas Tech, starting in 49 of those contests, and averaging 8.7 points, 1.9 assists, and 4.5 rebounds per game.

McCullar averaged 10.1 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 3.1 assists for the Red Raiders during the 2021-22 college basketball season and was a big reason why Texas Tech was able to get to the Sweet 16 for the third time in the last four tournaments.
