There is reason to be excited about the Texas Tech wide receivers and tight ends after an offseason overhaul. That group could welcome four new starters thanks to the transfer portal and an All-American high school signee.

Transfers Caleb Douglas (Florida), Josh Kelly (Washington State), and Jalin Conyers (Arizona State) could be the starters at both outside receiver spots and at tight end respectively. Each brings far more explosiveness to the field than the palyers who manned those spots a season ago.

Of course, Micah Hudson, the 5-star true freshman signee from Temple, Texas will factor into the starting lineup somwhere, possibly in the slot. He is only 6 feet tall so he might be a natural fit at inside receiver.

However, he did play outside WR in high school and despite not being a big player, he plays a physical brand of football that could allow him to also line up on the outside. Of course, he will not participate in spring practices due to offseason knee surgery so we will have to wait until fall camp to see how he is deployed.
