Former McDonald's All-American Nimari Burnett transferring from Texas Tech

Nimari Burnett, a 6'4 guard who became the first ever McDonald's All-American to sign at Texas Tech, announced he would transfer on Thursday. The news was first reported by The Athletic's Shams Charania. Burnett averaged 5.3 points per game through the first part of the season at Tech, but never found his footing in a loaded backcourt that added transfers Mac McClung and Jamarius Burton this off-season. He originally chose the Red Raiders over Alabama, Michigan and Oregon.
