Texas Tech Red Raiders Basketball Recruiting Tracker: Check back often as we keep you up-to-date on Red Raiders news as Texas Tech looks to improve on an already impressive class.

With college basketball's 2022-2023 season underway, rumors are beginning to fly in terms of visits and commitments for that class and beyond.

Under head coach Mark Adams and his elite staff, the Tech recruiting momentum is hitting full force, and as a result, the Red Raiders are in the mix for some of the top names around the country, each of whom wants to take a hard look at the makings of what Adams and his staff are building in Lubbock.

Stick with Red Raider Review for all of the latest updates in recruiting below:


After numerous reports over the last couple of days, it appears the Canadian-born big man Fardaws Aimaq is not entering the transfer portal after all.

Aimaq posted on Twitter today that he's "a Red Raider and will do whatever I can to be back on the court ASAP." 


Texas Tech Red Raiders 2023 target Jazz "Big" Gardner has announced he's paying a visit to Lubbock.

Depending on who you ask, Gardner is either 6-10 or 7-feet tall, and 200 pounds. The West Ranch (Stevenson Ranch, California) product is highly sought after by several schools, including Tech.

Gardner has received offers from Arizona State, Dayton, Georgia, Houston, Illinois, Pitt, Loyola Marymount, and others.


Top class of 2024 shooting guard Jamari Phillips is down to his final six schools per On3. Along with Texas Tech, UCLA, Gonzaga, Kansas, Oregon, and Louisville are all in the running.

Phillips spoke to On3 about his game recently. “I can shoot the ball very well, at a high rate and I can let it fly,” said Phillips. “I’m a good facilitator as well and can get my teammates open, help them get shots off, and get them going. I can handle the rock very well, even under pressure defense and I don’t lose focus on plays. I kind of study the reads on certain situations. I’m a good, all-around team player.”


North Carolina transfer Kerwin Walton has committed to Texas Tech.  He told On3 Sports, “I felt that I could make an immediate impact.”

The 6-5 shooting guard and Minnesota native chose the Red Raiders over Clemson, Memphis, Oklahoma, and Kansas State. During his freshman season at North Carolina Walton led the Tarheels with 58 3-pointers in 20 starts.


Elite class of 2023 power forward Devin Williams from Corona, California has narrowed his commitment down to five schools, including Texas Tech.

The 6-10 prospect commented on his appeal to Tech to On3:

“Coach Mark Adams is a really, really good coach over there. I love Texas Tech’s playstyle," Williams said. "They play fast, play extremely hard. They’ve made some really good runs over the last few years. I just love their style and coaching staff."

Williams is also considering UCLA, USC, Arizona, and UNLV.

May 29 UPDATE:

Corey Williams Jr, the class of 2022 point guard and son of Tech assistant coach Corey Williams, has committed to Texas Tech.

The 6-2, 169-pound ball handler is out of Fayetteville High School (Arkansas) and arrived in Fayetteville by way of Deland, Florida, where his father was the head coach of Stetson University for six seasons before joining the Razorbacks' staff.


Elite 2023 Elijah Fisher has committed to Texas Tech and will be reclassing to the class of 2022. For years the 6-6 wing was the face of the Crestwood Prep basketball program and the most highly-touted prospect in the country. 

Now, he'll be moving on, having decided to reclassify and head to Texas Tech to play collegiately.

Fisher decided on Texas Tech, where he'll team up with fellow Canadian Fardaws Aimaq from Vancouver, B.C., who announced he'll withdraw his name from NBA Draft consideration and return to Texas Tech.

Fisher will be draft-eligible next season following his freshman season. 


Missouri State transfer Isiaih Mosley is being targeted by Texas Tech. Mosley is one of the best scorers available in the portal and averaged 20.4 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 2.3 assists per contest in 2021 - 2022.

Other schools showing interest in Mosley are Kansas, Kansas State, and Mississippi State.


The Lady Raiders have added some size to the squad as Jazmaine Lewis, a 6-4 forward from Kansas City has signed. She transfers to Tech after spending the last three seasons at Houston.
