Moving can be a massive pain and it seems two Texas Tech players have agreed with that sentiment.
The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal notes that both running back DeMarcus Felton and linebacker Brayden Stringer have apparently rejoined the football team and appear on the Red Raiders’ latest roster despite both having announced plans this spring to transfer out of the program.
Felton, a senior, had tweeted back in May that he was pursuing a graduate transfer away from Tech after rushing for 529 yards and four touchdowns over three seasons as a backup. He provides added depth behind Da’Leon Ward and Tre King in the backfield, which is stacked outside of the looming question mark at quarterback for Kliff Kingsbury.
Stringer saw action in nearly every game over his two seasons in Lubbock but the junior had announced his transfer out of town in April. He now figures to rotate in some more behind Dakota Allen and fellow junior Jordyn Brooks.
That’s not the only roster changes for Tech though, as the Journal notes that junior linebacker Kevin Moore, senior cornerback Jaylon Lane and sophomore punter John De La Garza (a walk-on) are no longer on the team. The biggest loss of that trio is likely Moore, who played in 12 games last season, while Lane started three times in 2017 but eventually found himself in Kingsbury’s doghouse for unspecified reasons.
