Two new schools enter the mix for Texas Tech star Terrence Shannon Jr.

On Friday, Texas Tech wing Terrence Shannon Jr. entered the transfer portal, and he is quickly hearing from some of the biggest programs in college hoops.


Shannon's former AAU program announced that two new schools have entered the mix over the weekend - North Carolina, and Missouri under new head coach Dennis Gates. This after Mac Irvin previously shared that Kentucky, UConn, Illinois and Michigan have already reached out to the 6'7 wing.


Shannon has been a key cog for the Red Raiders each of the last three seasons, averaging 12.4 points per game as a sophomore in 2020-2021, and actually declared for the draft following that season. He returned this year, but battled injuries and saw his numbers dip, averaging 10.5 points per game and 38 percent three-point shooting.


Still, when healthy Shannon is a dynamic wing with NBA-level talent.


He also told CBS' Jon Rothstein that he would consider returning to Texas Tech next season.
