Red Raider Daily Links: Pro Day Review, FootballScoop Q&A


A daily look around the internet for the latest Red Raiders news.

Reviewing the Big 12 pro days

Max Olson, ESPN

Texas Tech (March 14)

Big name: TE Jace Amaro. The All-America tight end tried to secure a spot in the first round with improvements in the 40 (4.68) and vertical, and at 6-5 and 266 pounds he evoked comparisons to Vernon Davis from one 49ers scout.

Sleeper: CB Bruce Jones. He’s undersized at 5-7 and 183 pounds, but Jones did grab some attention at pro day with a run of a 4.5-second 40 time and team-best vertical of 41 inches.

Dusek, Gutierrez Guide Tech in 6-3 Win

Texas Tech Athletics

MIDLAND, Texas – Freshman left-handed pitcher Dylan Dusek allowed two runs in 6.1 innings and sophomore first baseman Eric Gutierrez hit a game-winning, three-run home run in the fifth inning to give No. 25 Texas Tech to a 6-3 victory over New Mexico on a neutral field in front of 5,169 fans at Security Bank Ballpark Tuesday evening.
