The Texas Tech Red Raiders just landed a major player in the transfer portal with seven-foot center, Warren Washington, headed to Lubbock.
The next addition of the Grant McCasland era, Washington played at Arizona State averaging 9.2 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game on 56% shooting from the field.
McCasland was hired after his championship win in the NIT Tournament and took over what was left of Mark Adams’ team after the head coach stepped down following reported inexcusable language and actions towards the team.
After seeing players like Jaylon Tyson, Fardaws Aimaq, and Elijah Fisher enter the transfer portal, McCasland made short work of his time in the offseason acquiring role players to boost the squad and restart the culture in Lubbock.
The California native’s best game of the season came back on January 21st against USC where he dominated the glass for 21 points and eight rebounds. With the Big 12 Conference having some of the most talented big men in the country including Hunter Dickinson, Nae’Qwan Tomlin, Moussa Cisse and more, Washington will be tested from the first time he steps on the court.
The Red Raiders continue to fill out their roster after adding Darrion Williams from Nevada, Chance McMillan from Grand Canyon, and now Warren Washington from ASU, Grant McCasland is having a solid start to his first offseason with the Red Raiders.
