An announcement came that 4-Star SG Drew Steffe would be committing to Texas Tech to give Mark Adams and staff their first commitment for 2023 and a 4-Star commit at that!!
Steffe would be one of the highest recruits for Texas Tech along with Richard “Pop Pop” Isaacs who committed earlier this season for the Class of 2022.
Steffe is from Memorial High School in Frisco and according to 247Sports, he has a composite score of 0.9353. He is currently the 124th ranked player nationally, the 27th ranked Shooting Guard and the 12th best player in Texas.
Texas Tech offered Steffe of October of 2021 and in November he announced that Texas Tech would be in his Top-5 for his decision. And he recently came on an official this past weekend and was in attendance for their win over West Virginia.
There are a bunch of qualities that stand out about this kid when you watch him play and Tech fans should be excited about what he brings to the program!
The main thing about Steffe is his shooting. This kid has such a smooth jump shot and can hit it from anywhere on the court. His three-point shooting is off the charts!
His mid-range game is one of the things that make him really lethal because he knows how to create separation and find those open jump shots.
At 6’5 for a shooting guard, he really knows how to post-up those smaller guards and use his skillsets to get to the rim.
He is a big-time three-level scorer. He is somebody who can come in and be an immediate impact player starting or off the bench.
With the guys Mark Adams has in this year’s class, this is a great start to the Class of 2023. I think everybody can put to rest that Adams’ can actually recruit and he’s doing it pretty well.
I’ve said this before and I am going to reiterate it again, but Adams is pulling in athletic, lengthy dudes that can shoot the ball and play defense, and Steffe is just that kind of player.
The last thing is that Steffe shows up in big-time games as he did against Richardson, who was No.8 at the time and finished with 32 points.
Texas Tech’s future of this program is going to be in great hands, and if he can buy into that hard-nosed all-out hustle and defensive mentality, this kid is going to be something special to watch in a few years!
