Texas Tech adds grad transfers from Utah, Penn State
LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Texas Tech has added three graduate transfers in running back Armand Shyne from Utah, defensive back Zech McPhearson out of Penn State and former California linebacker Evan Rambo.
The signings of Shyne and Rambo on Wednesday came after the addition earlier this week of McPhearson for new coach Matt Wells, who came from Utah State.
Shyne has one year of eligibility, while McPhearson has two. Rambo is seeking NCAA approval for a sixth year of eligibility, which could give him two seasons with the Red Raiders.
McPhearson played primarily cornerback and special teams for the Nittany Lions. Rambo, who played safety before switching to linebacker, had 34 tackles in 27 games during an injury-plagued career at Cal.
