Texas Tech lands 2014 commit Keenan Evans

Texas Tech landed a floor general in Keenan Evans shown above, marking the third commit for the Red Raiders in the last two weeks.
UPDATE:   

Richardson Berkner point guard Keenan Evans, announced earlier today that he will indeed commit for Tubby Smith and his staff, in the 2014 recruiting class. A three star point guard from Richardson, Texas, is the third prospect to commit to the Red Raiders in the past two weeks. Evans averaged 14.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game last season in his junior year at Berkner. He joins fellow three star commits to Texas Tech’s 2014 class, 6’5 guard Justin Gray out of Berkeley Prep., Florida, and 6’8 forward Zach Smith out of Plano East, Texas. Evans was highly recruited by assistant coach Pooh Williamson which played a big role in is commit, and also coach Tubby smith who Evans sees as a great role model. Another reason for joining the Red Raiders, is Evans wants to help coach Smith turn around the program in the right direction. The recruiting class as of now, is sure looking good to lead to success for Texas Tech. 

 
ANALYSIS:

Evans also held offers from Colorado, Colorado State, Fresno State, North Texas, Texas State, Utah State, Western Kentucky, and Wichita State. Evans stated it came down to Texas Tech and Western Kentucky, and I’m assuming from the commit of Justin Johnson last night to Western Kentucky, made it much easier for Evans to choose the Red Raiders. Known as a scoring point guard, Keenan can also distribute and has great court vision. Scouts have said he has a balanced attack, knowing when to score and also looking to set up his teammates. He looks to be the leader on the court, and this is a tremendous commitment for Texas Tech.
