Texas Tech Lands Georgia Transfer KyeRon Lindsay

NCAA Basketball: Gonzaga at Texas Tech

Texas Tech landed another coveted transfer for men’s basketball with the commitment of KyeRon Lindsay, who signed with Georgia for the Class of 2022.

On3.com was one of several outlets to report the decision. Texas Tech did not make an official announcement.

 

Lindsay, considered a four-star player in high school, is from Texas and played at Guyer High School in Denton, Texas, before heading off to Georgia this fall.

He didn’t spend long with the Bulldogs, as he averaged 6.2 points and 5.2 rebounds per game while shooting nearly 55 percent from the floor. When he left Georgia he was leading the team in rebounds.

Lindsay entered his name in the transfer portal after 11 games and while the Bulldogs were on winter break.

When Lindsay came out of high school he was a Top 100 recruit according to 247Sports.com. He was Texas’ No. 7 overall recruit and the 6-foot-8 forward signed with Georgia in April.

Texas Tech is not off to a good start in Big 12 action, having lost its first two games entering Saturday’s context with Oklahoma in Lubbock. But, head coach Mark Adams has done a good job of tapping into the transfer portal for talent since he took over in April of 2021.

 

That includes bringing forward Fardaws Aimaq — who is currently injured — and guard De’Vion Harmon to Lubbock this season.

Lindsay joins a 2023 recruiting class that includes a pair of prep players that signed in November — guard Jason Jackson from Riverview High School in Sarasota, Fla., and guard Drew Steffe of Memorial High School in Frisco, Texas. Both are top 150 recruits per 247sports.com.
