NCAA Basketball: Texas Christian at Texas Tech Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

The college basketball world shook a little beneath our feet last week when the Texas Longhorns announced the hiring of Chris Beard as the program’s new basketball coach.

Beard replaces Shaka Smart. He also leaves behind a somewhat talented team in the Texas Tech Red Raiders. That is, it was a talented team. Now, at least two Tech players have hit the transfer portal since the announcement of Beard’s big move to Austin, 247Sports reports.

From 247Sports: “Micah Peavy and Marcus Santos-Silva are each weighing their future options following Beard’s decision to leave Lubbock for the Texas job. [Both] played pivotal roles for Texas Tech’s run to the NCAA Tournament’s Round of 32 last month. Santos-Silva, a senior forward who previously transferred from VCU, averaged 8.3 points and a team-leading 6.4 rebounds for the Red Raiders on the year. Peavy, a former four-star recruit in the 2020 class from Duncanville, Texas, put up 5.7 points and 3.1 rebounds per game as a freshman.”
