The 2017 Texas Tech backcourt will look very familiar to South Plains College basketball fans.

The Red Raiders added another member from the Texans' basketball program to their list of incoming players on Thursday as Josh Webster announced he will be attending Texas Tech University to play for head coach Chris Beard in the Big 12 conference.

"Coach Beard is a great guy and he really believed in me as a guard and as a player and a person," Webster said on his decision to sign with Tech. "He likes to win, and I like to win too, and we really want to make it to the (NCAA) tournament. Coach Green and our coaching staff has really been on me be about working hard and staying focused. All of us are really just staying focused on winning a national championship this year."

A native of St. Louis, Missouri, Webster has led the Texans to a 4-0 record this season while averaging 11 points per game and shooting 71 percent from the field. Webster has been instrumental in running the Texans' offense, totaling 38 assists and averaging 9.5 assists per game. Webster is the second player from the Texans' 2016 roster to sign with the Red Raiders, following Jordan Brangers who signed with Tech on November 9.

"Coach Beard preached to me that he wants to make it to the national tournament, and that really hit my heart because that's one of my main goals is to make it to the national tournament. Coach Beard is a really passionate guy like me because we both come from Division II schools, and we're both really passionate about the game and both passionate about winning."
