Billy Gillispie and Texas Tech Have 7 Commitments for 2011-2012 Season

 The Texas Tech Red Raiders were not a good basketball team last season under Pat Knight. Because of their poor record Knight was shown the door and Billy Gillispie was hired.

Even with Gillispie in charge Texas Tech may still not be good next year but at least things will look different when you look out on the court.

In recent weeks Gillispie received commitments from Juco teammates Jaron Nash and Kader Tapsoba out of Tyler J.C.  Nash is listed at 6'7" 175 pounds while Tapsoba is listed at 6"10".

With these two players now on board the Red Raiders have a total of seven players committed for the 2011-2012 season.

According to Rivals the five players who have signed their letter of intents consist of four 3 star recruits: SG Toddrick Gotcher, SF Terran Petteway, PF Jordan Tolbert and PG Kevin Wagner along with 2 star recruit PF Hershey Robinson.

This is a continuing situation to watch as usually when a new coach comes on board at any university there is house cleaning of sorts that takes place within the program.
