    On Tuesday the Texas Tech Red Raiders men’s basketball team added another impact transfer to the 2024-25 roster. Former New Mexico Lobos power forward announced that he will head a little east to Lubbock, Texas. JT Toppin was listed as a four-star transfer after averaging nearly a double-double last season.

    Toppin joins a backcourt that also added Pittsburgh Panthers power forward Fede Federiko back in March. The freshman forward averaged 12.4 points per game to go along with 9.1 rebounds, and 1.9 blocks per game. He scored a career high 27 points against Toledo in November and recording 12 double-doubles. In 36 games, Toppin scored in double digits 23 times and pulled down double-digit rebounds in 17 games. Toppin set a career-high in total rebounds with 16 twice.

    This acquisition by head coach Grant McCasland and the staff will give them a presence around the rim. Something that seemed to be lacking at times last season.
