Texas Tech QB Donovan Smith Enters Transfer Portal

The Red Raiders quarterback rook will be less crowded in 2023 as quarterback Donovan Smith has entered the transfer portal. Smith is currently a sophomore and has shown some splashes of potential this season for the Red Raiders before losing the starting job to a combination of freshman quarterback Behren Morton and senior quarterback Tyler Shough.

Smith started five games for Tech this season and led them to an overall record of 3-2. Smith posted a stat line of 147 completions for 1,505 yards and a touchdown to interception ratio of 12-8. Smith also added seven scores on the ground during the 2022 season in which he played in all 12 games.


The Red Raiders suffer a bit of a setback in losing Donovan Smith, but all signs point towards the emergence of Freshman QB Behren Morton. Morton logged quality starts at West Virginia and Oklahoma State in which the young signal caller threw for a combined 704 yards, and four scores.

The transfer portal continues to be a frenzy this season around the country and you can view our updated transfer portal tracker on Heartland College Sports.
