Toddrick Gotcher

Toddrick Gotcher has evolved into a solid all-around player in his three years playing for Texas Tech Basketball. And as a senior next season, Gotcher must assume a leadership role and set the tone for his young team.

That leadership will begin with setting the tone in all offseason workouts.

Gotcher must also be Tech’s best perimeter defender. He has the size, strength, and mentality to be a defensive stopper, so working on his defense this summer is a must.  Tech will need him to slow down the numerous potent backcourt scorers in the Big 12.
