Texas tech football lands former ex-Reagan starting quarterback Tyler Shaff as a graduate transfer

Former Oregon quarterback starting Tyler Shaff will join Texas Tech as a graduate transfer, he announced Monday.

Schuff, who started all seven games, will have three years left to qualify with the Red Raiders after Oregon won its second Pack-12 championship in 2020.

He completed his 63.5 percent pass at 1,559 yards last season with 13 touchdowns and six interceptions, but lost time playing against Anthony Brown in both the Pack-12 Championship game and the Fiesta Bowl. The 6-foot-5, 221-pound Schuff said after the Bowl game that he intended to stay in Oregon but entered the NCAA transfer portal on Feb. 12.

Recruiting an ESPN 300 in the 2018 class, Schuff spent two seasons backing up Justin Herbert before winning his last job at Ason. He completed his degree at Reg Reagan and tweeted that he would pursue a master’s degree at Texas Tech.

Texas Lawn Bowman, the primary starting quarterback for the last three seasons of Texas Tech, entered the transfer portal in January.

Texas Tech retains Henry Columbi, who passed 1,065 yards and eight touchdowns last season, and welcomes Bahrain Morton, ESPN’s No. 20 pocket pass and No. 156 overall player in the 2021 recruiting class.

Texas Tech replaced offensive coordinator David Yost with the school’s former quarterback, Sony Kambi. The Red Riders finished 4-6 last season.
