Texas Tech quarterback Jacob Karam says unabashedly that he wants to finish the spring listed first string. That’s a confident stance for a sophomore who’s had an uphill battle trying to unseat the more experienced Seth Doege.
Here is an unofficial Texas Tech depth chart after two weeks of spring practice. Offense SE: Eric Ward, So.; Marcus Kennard, Jr.; Derek Edwards, Fr.
IR (H): Tramain Swindall, Sr.; Cornelius Douglas, Jr.
Texas Tech will reach the two-thirds point of spring football practice when the Red Raiders go through their second intrasquad scrimmage today at Jones AT&T Stadium. Among the things Tech coach Tommy Tuberville will be looking for is better play on defense and continued development of the quarterbacks.
One of Tuberville’s complaints after the first scrimmage last Saturday was that the Red Raiders didn’t tackle well.
Texas Tech liked the fact that five of its freshmen football players graduated high school early enough to enroll at mid-term and join the team in January. After Saturday, Tech coaches might like them even more.
Texas Tech and Baylor set a series record by selling nearly 72,000 tickets when they moved their football game two years ago to Cowboys Stadium. Next season, the Red Raiders and the Bears will give it another shot and hope for the same level of excitement.
