Texas Tech Picked 8th in Preseason Big 12 Media Poll
The Big 12 Conference announced its 2015 Preseason All-Big 12 Football Team on Wednesday, July 15 with three Texas Tech football players selected.
Senior offensive lineman Le’Raven Clark scored his third selection. Senior defensive lineman/linebacker Pete Robertson and senior punter Taylor Symmank also joined the list as first timers.
The preseason team, which is selected by a vote of media members who regularly cover the league, was announced in advance of next week’s Big 12 Conference Media Days, which will be held July 20-21 in Dallas. Texas Tech will be represented at the Big 12 Media Days on Monday.
Individual selections include quarterback Trevone Boykin (TCU) as Preseason Offensive Player of the Year, lineman Shawn Oakman (Baylor) as Preseason Defensive Player of the Year and running back Chris Carson (Oklahoma State) as Preseason Newcomer of the Year.
Not many surprises in the 2015 Big 12 Preseason Poll. Kansas and ISU at the bottom, and TCU and Baylor at the top is exactly where those four teams were expected to be. The middle six teams could all be switched in any order and there would not be much argument.
Do you agree? How high can Texas Tech finish in 2015?
