It’s the End of an Era for Texas Tech Track Star Divine Oduduru
Divine Oduduru has made one heck of an impression on the track world, and even more so on Texas Tech.
The junior Red Raider has had a wild ride here in Lubbock, winning individual national titles in indoor and outdoor events in back-to-back years in multiple events. Oduduru also was the biggest point winner that led Texas Tech to win its first Men's team national championship ever.
Now, Oduduru is foregoing his senior year of eligibility to go pro:
After getting a sub-10 in the 100m and a sub-20 in the 200m, the whole world knew Oduduru was ready for the big time. He's one of, if not the fastest man, in the world right now. He'll be a star in the next world championship and Olympic trials, and of course the next Olympic games in 2020.
Oduduru will end his Red Raider career as the owner of seven of the program's top 10 100m times, and seven of the top 10 200m times. He owns the school records in the wind-legal and wind-aided 100m and 200m. He's the greatest Texas Tech sprinter of all time.
