Forward from LA will join Red Raiders


LUBBOCK — Texas Tech got its first addition for new coach Mark Adams on Thursday with transfer forward Kaelen “KJ” Allen signing to play for the Red Raiders following the potential departures of several key players.

Allen will have three seasons of eligibilit­y remaining after one season at East Los Angeles College. The 6-6 Los Angeles native averaged 18.5 points, 9.3 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game during his 29-1 freshman season.

All-big 12 junior guard Mac Mcclung, Tech’s leading scorer after transferri­ng from Georgetown, intends to go through the NBA draft process. Mcclung also has his name in the NCAA transfer portal, as does fellow junior guard Kyler Edwards. Sophomore forward Terrence Shannon Jr. plans to explore the NBA draft without hiring an agent, making him eligible to return. They are three of the team’s top four scorers.
