Texas Tech basketball announces signings of Devan Cambridge, Joe Toussaint

The Texas Tech basketball team officially announced the signings of transfers Devan Cambridge and Joe Toussaint Thursday.

With the two new signings, the 2023-24 Red Raiders roster sits at 13 players, which accounts for all of the available scholarship positions allowed per NCAA rules for men’s basketball teams.

Toussaint comes to Tech after spending last year at Big 12 rival West Virginia. He entered the transfer portal after WVU head coach Bob Huggins elected to resign following his arrest for DUI in Pennsylvania in June.

The 6-foot guard averaged 9.4 points on 32.7% shooting from 3-point range and converted 78.7% of his free throws last season. Prior to being a Mountaineer, Toussaint spent three years with the Iowa Hawkeyes. He’ll enter the upcoming season with 792 points and 368 assists for his career.

Cambridge spent last year at Arizona State after playing the first three seasons of his collegiate career at Auburn. He’ll be reunited with Warren Washington, who also played for Arizona State during the 2022-23 season and transferred to Tech earlier this offseason.

A 6-foot-6 guard, Cambridge posted averages of 9.8 points and 5.4 rebounds per game, starting 35 out of 36 games for the Sun Devils. He was a 50.4% shooter overall and 33.3% from 3. He’s accumulated 899 points and 479 rebounds in his 127 career games.

Both Cambridge and Toussaint have one year of eligibility remaining. They join Washington, Darrion Williams (Nevada) and Chance McMillian (Grand Canyon) as transfer brought in by new head coach Grant McCasland to round out the Tech roster.

Texas Tech track & field

Wes Kittley, head coach of the Texas Tech track & field team, announced the promotions of two staff members Thursday.

Calvin Robinson will now serve the team as the associate head coach. Tom Slagle is being promoted to a full-time assistant.

“What Calvin has done over the past years is unprecedented in our sport,” Kittley said in the news release. “He’s proven himself to not only be on of the best springs and hurdles coaches in the business but has put our program as the No. 1 elite sprints and hurdles program in the country.”

Robinson’s sprinters and hurdlers helped account for 29 of Texas Tech’s 34.5 points in the NCAA Outdoor Championships. He has spent eight years with the Red Raiders and was recently named the USTFCCCA Outdoor Mountain Region Men’s Assistant Coach of the Year.

Slagle has been with the program since 2013, working with the pole vaulters. He has previously been volunteering with the program but will now be an official member of the coaching staff.

“His loyalty to me and this program goes unmatched,” Slagle said. “… Tom is so important to our overall team, and I can’t wait to see what he’ll do in the coming years as he can now recruit off campus.”
