McLane Mannix Wants to Be Texas Tech’s Leading Receiver and Win a Big 12 Title
McLane Mannix had huge success in two seasons at Nevada. He was a freshman All-American and, as a sophomore, was named offensive MVP.
Then, he wanted to come home to be closer to his mom who was having medical issues. Now that the Midland native is back in West Texas, he's ready to help Texas Tech fulfill their goals.
"I'm not worried about what I can do, I'm worried about what I can do for the team," he told Talk 1340's Rob Breaux and Karson Robinson.
Mannix, like several players, talked about Texas Tech being a title contender or getting to a New Year's Six bowl. Heavy goals considering the underwhelming seasons Texas Tech is coming off of.
Mannix believes the team's hard work can overcome that stigma. "Going into practice one, working my tail off, winning the job and being the leading receiver, but that's not my main goal," he said. "My main goal is to win the big 12 and go to a New Year's Six bowl."
The new Red Raider also said that Yost's tempo was "at another level" compared to what he ran at Nevada. You can watch our interview with McLane Mannix below.
