Tyreek Smith, a four-star forward prospect out of the 2019 college basketball recruiting class, has committed to play for the Texas Tech Red Raiders.
He made the announcement on the mean streets of Twitter.
It’s certainly worth noting Smith was actually originally committed to play for the Texas A&M Aggies, but that commitment came way back in September, and well before the program’s coaching change.
Not only do most reputable recruiting service websites do have Tyreek Smith pegged as a four-star caliber player, they all agree he’s just outside being one of the 100 best prospects in the 2019 class. This is largely because he’s a relatively smaller power forward, standing 6-foot-8, but it undercuts how athletic he is to the point it offsets any size issues.
In 2018 for Trinity Christian, Smith averaged around 20 points and 13 rebounds per game. He led Trinity Christian to the TAPPS 5A state championship game in March of that year.
Nevertheless, this is a big time get for the Texas Tech Red Raiders.
