Linebackers untouched by graduation
When Texas Tech defensive coordinator Matt Wallerstedt was hired in January, he inherited a group of linebackers untouched by graduation. The starters, the backups, you name it, they’ve played a good bit.
They just didn’t make hardly any big plays last season.
And that was nothing new.
“I know that’s been a knock since I got here is the linebacker play hasn’t been as productive as it needs to be,” Wallerstedt said last week. “It’s certainly been addressed from early on in spring, and we’ve challenged that whole second level to play well this fall.”
