LUBBOCK, Texas – Texas Tech head coach Matt Wells announced Friday the transfer of former TCU offensive lineman T.J. Storment, who will play his final year of eligibility with the Red Raiders.
Storment, who will immediately enroll at Texas Tech in time for spring workouts, was granted a Big 12 waiver Friday in order to freely transfer within the conference, making him eligible for the 2021 football season.
“We’re excited to add an offensive lineman with T.J.’s experience and skill level,” Wells said. “T.J. will provide a veteran presence with our offensive line and our team, and we are excited to welcome him to the Red Raider family.”
Storment has started in 19 games the past two seasons alone at either Colorado State or TCU, all at left tackle. Storment was a 12-game starter for the Rams during the 2019 campaign before transferring to TCU where he became the primary starter for the final seven games this past season, eventually earning All-Big 12 accolades in the process.
TCU was 5-2 overall with Storment in the starting rotation as he was tabbed a second team All-Big 12 selection following the 2020 season by the Associated Press. He added honorable mention All-Big 12 accolades by the conference coaches and was also a first team Academic All-Big 12 pick for his efforts as a master’s of liberal arts student.
Storment attended Old Dominion out of high school, redshirting the 2016 campaign before appearing in five games as a redshirt freshman in 2017. He moved on to Fullerton College, a prominent community college program in California, where he was a first team All-Southern California Football Association (SCFA) selection in 2018.
Originally from Statesville, North Carolina, Storment signed with Old Dominion out of Statesville High School where he earned All-North Piedmont honors as a senior. He was also a member of the Statesville baseball program throughout his prep career.
Storment becomes the 10th signee to join the Red Raiders this spring and the fourth to transfer from a power-five institution, joining the likes of Malik Dunlap (N.C. State), Jesiah Pierre (Florida) and Marquis Waters (Duke).
