LUBBOCK, Texas — Mark Adams added another piece to Texas Tech’s roster Saturday, securing a commitment from Winthrop transfer Adonis Arms.

Arms announced his pledge to Texas Tech on social media.

The 6-foot-6 guard came off the bench last season for a Winthrop team that posted a 23-2 record and earned a No. 12 seed in the NCAA Tournament before falling to No. 5 Villanova.

He averaged 10.5 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game and shot 35.1 percent from 3-point range.

Arms said in his tweet that he was also recruited by Oklahoma State, DePaul, Butler, Iowa State and BYU after entering the transfer portal.

Before landing at Winthrop, Arms played at Mesa Community College and Northwest Nazarene University, according to his page on Winthrop’s official website.

Arms joins East Los Angeles College forward KJ Allen, Trinity Christian (Lubbock) guard Ethan Duncan and Dallas Baptist guard Chandler Jacobs as players that have joined the Red Raiders since Adams was named head coach.
