LUBBOCK, Texas – Texas Tech head coach Mark Adams has announced the signing of KyeRon Lindsay to an Athletic Scholarship Agreement. A transfer from the University of Georgia, Lindsay will join the Red Raider program this semester but will not be eligible to play until the 2023-24 season.
“We are excited to add KyeRon to our program,” Adams said. “He is a very talented scorer and rebounder who we think will be able to add a lot to our team next season. He’ll be able to join us soon and become a big part of our program this season. I’m looking forward to seeing him compete with our guys during practice this season and what he’ll bring to our team next year.”
A Denton, Texas native, Lindsay played in 10 games as a freshman at Georgia this season before deciding to put his name into the transfer portal at midterm. He started 8 of 10 games for the Bulldogs, finishing with 6.2 points and 5.2 rebounds per game. Lindsay recorded a double-double in his third collegiate game after going for 14 points and 10 rebounds against Miami-Ohio after scoring 10 points against Wake Forest.
