LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) Texas Tech is including former Oregon quarterback Tyler Shough as a graduate switch.
Shough began all seven video games for the Geese final season as a redshirt sophomore. He threw for 1,559 yards, 13 touchdowns and 6 interceptions in final season.
Oregon completed 4-3, beating USC 31-24 within the Pac-12 championship recreation. It was crushed by Iowa State 34-17 within the Fiesta Bowl.
The arrival of Shough at Texas Tech comes after Alan Bowman transferred to Michigan. Bowman had been the Purple Raiders’ starter earlier than splitting duties in 2020 with Henry Colombi, who’s returning this 12 months.
The Purple Raiders completed 4-6 of their second season underneath Matt Wells. He coached Colombi in his earlier job at Utah State. Colombi transferred final 12 months and was granted rapid eligibility by the NCAA.
Shough enrolled early at Oregon in 2018, took his redshirt 12 months after taking part in briefly that season and performed 5 video games as Justin Herbert‘s backup in 2019. Herbert went sixth total to the Los Angeles Chargers in final 12 months’s NFL draft.
Shough earned a twin undergraduate diploma in legal justice and political science. The pandemic-shortened 2020 season didn’t rely towards a participant’s eligibility so he can play for 3 extra years.
