Texas Tech is having a pretty good weekend so far. On Saturday Notre Dame defensive end Kolin Hill announced via Twitter that he’s found a new home in Lubbock.

Kolin, originally from Schertz, TX, was a three-star member of the Notre Dame’s 2014 class. It was reported earlier this month that he had returned to Texas, and intended to transfer from the Fighting Irish.
Their loss is the Red Raiders gain. As a true freshman last season he was already making his presence felt in the defense. He earned playing time in nine games, recorded seven total tackles, and dropped the quarterback behind the line twice.
Hill will have to sit out the 2015 season as a sacrifice to the NCAA overlords, but will have three years of eligibility remaining when he returns to the field. New defensive coordinator David Gibbs is bringing a new identity (well, an identity) to the Red Raiders’ defense, and Kolin Hill could be a big part of that in the years to come.
