Texas A&M’s Jada Terry is transferring to Texas Tech coach Candi Whitaker announced Tuesday.

 

“Jada is a very talented post player that provides a much-needed inside presence,” Whitaker said in a press release. “Her pro frame and ability to finish at a high percentage will be an immediate impact when she hits the court. We could not be happier she chose to be a Lady Raider.”

Texas Tech and Candi Whitaker are loading up on transfers. Multiple outlets reported Sunday that the Lady Raiders picked up its third transfer of the offseason when former Texas A&M post Jada Terry committed to play for Whitaker.
