Texas Tech Baseball Player Jake Barrios Named as Big 12 Newcomer of the Week
Another Texas Tech baseball player has received conference accolades.
Red Raider junior third baseman Jake Barrios has been named as the Big 12 Newcomer of the Week.
Barrios, a transfer from Seward County Community College, joins teammates Jonny Drozd, a left-handed pitcher and Devon Conley, an outfielder in receiving this particular honor during the current season.
No other Big 12 program has more than one player who has received the award.
He is also the sixth Red Raider all-time to receive the honor, as the Big 12 began naming a top newcomer each week in 2011.
Texas Tech will open a five-game road trip Tuesday afternoon at New Mexico, and will also play Kansas State on April 5th through the 7th and Dallas Baptist on April 9th.
