LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Texas Tech football team has been grinding it out all week in fall camp.

One of the things that everyone is talking about coming into the season, is the size at wide receiver.

For the first time since Jace Amaro, the Texas Tech offense has size on the outside.

The team says that will pay off big in the red zone.

"That is something we lacked last year. We did’t have many deep threats, we kind of had to maneuver things with Jakeem. But now we have some guys that we can push the ball down field with, so I would expect that to be more a part of the offense," says head coach Kliff Kingsbury.

"I tell Pat all the time if we don’t score every time we get inside the twenty, we aren't doing something right. Because we should be able to throw it up to one of those guys and they should bring down one time out of four," backup quarterback Nic Shimonek said.

"Being in our offense that makes it so much more effective, just having those guys you can just throw it up to. Having the offense spread out like that will help out the inside guys, and the running game at the same time," says junior quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
