Kyler Edwards to transfer from Texas Tech

Texas Tech junior guard Kyler Edwards has elected to transfer, new coach Mark Adams said.

Adams recently was promoted to head coach after Chris Beard left for the Texas gig.

“Kyler Edwards put his name in the portal when the season ended wanting to explore his options,” Adams said in a news release. “Kyler has contacted me and informed me he has decided to leave Texas Tech. His contributions to Texas Tech the last three years are invaluable. I’m thankful for all Kyler has done here and proud we helped him grow as a player and as a person.”

Edwards averaged 10.1 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 29 games (26 starts) this season.

Overall, he had career averages of 8.7 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 98 appearances (57 starts) with the Red Raiders.
