“I would like to thank all the NCAA Division 1 programs who recruited and offered me. There were so many great programs and coaching staffs who showed me and my family love throughout this process. With that being said, I am happy to announce my commitment to Coach Beard and The Texas Tech Red Raiders,” Peavy said in a tweet.

Peavy scored 22 points and grabbed 13 rebounds as the Panthers defeated Klein Forest 73-69 in the Class 6A state title game last season, the program’s fourth state championship.
