Texas Tech Football Is Now Dropping Bodies and Beats
Dimitri Moore played for Joey McGuire at Cedar Hill before going to Vanderbilt as a freshman. He ended up transferring to Missouri State before finding his way back to Joey McGuire at Texas Tech.
Krishon Merriweather was the leading tackler in the state of Missouri his senior season, but took the JUCO route out of high school. A few years at Garden City CC prepared Merriweather to make the jump to Texas Tech. He's now in his third season as a Red Raider as a super senior.
Marquis Water enrolled at Duke in 2017 and played in 49 games as a Blue Devil before transferring to the Red Raiders last season. He missed Big 12 play in 2021 after an injury, so he's back for his super senior season as well.
All three of those guys were recruited and played their final season of high school football in 2017, and all of them have their last chance at college football this season. All three play on the defensive side of the ball, playing either linebacker or safety. They all transferred to Texas Tech after starting elsewhere.
All of those similarities on the field have seemingly bonded the trio, but those similarities don't end for the trio on the field. They also have formed a rap super group off the field.
Well, technically on the field with the bulk of their music video being recorded at The Jones.
Their debut single "Strap Up" shows off some skill from all three, with Moore, Waters and Merriweather dropping bars during the video.
Moore and Merriweather aren't the first Texas Tech linebackers to do a little rapping on the side. Seattle Seahawks linebacker and former Red Raider Jordyn Brooks free-styled for us during Texas Tech's 2019 football media day.
