College Football News Preview 2020: Top Texas Tech Red Raiders Players
Best Texas Tech Red Raiders Offensive Player
QB Alan Bowman, Soph.
The man knows how to wing the ball around the yard. He threw for 1,020 yards and six touchdowns in three games before getting knocked out for the year with a shoulder injury. As a freshman, he threw for almost 2,700 yards and 17 touchdowns in eight games, but missed the last few games after suffering a collapsed lung.
No matter who the starting quarterback is for the Red Raider offense, he’s going to be the star. If it’s not Bowman, it’s going to be Maverick McIvor. Either way, the Red Raider passing game will get to 4,000 yards.
2. OT Jack Anderson, Jr.
3. C Dawson Deaton, Jr.
4. PK Trey Wolff, Soph.
5. WR Erik Ezukanma, Soph.
Best Texas Tech Red Raiders Defensive Player
DE Eli Howard, Sr.
The 6-4, 275-pounder might not be a big run-stuffing lineman, but he’s quick off the ball, disruptive, and great at getting to the quarterback. He followed up a strong sophomore season with 21 tackles, five sacks, and seven quarterback hurries in his All-Big 12 season. He’s not going to be an anchor, but he’ll have to be accounted for on every play.
2. LB Riko Jeffers, Sr.
3. P Austin McNamara, Soph.
4. CB Adrian Frye, Jr.
5. CB DaMarcus Fields, Sr.
