    North Carolina transfer Kerwin Walton is headed to play for Mark Adams at Texas Tech.

    “I really like the basketball atmosphere around Texas Tech,” he said. “I feeI that I can make an immediate impact with my ability to shoot and create plays for others and myself and help the team win.”

    The 6-foot-5 Walton averaged 8.2 points as a freshman and shot 42 percent from deep, and then 3.4 points and 35 percent last season.

    Walton initially committed to UNC in April 2020.

    He is one of 10 new players at Texas Tech, including Utah Valley transfer Fardaws Aimaq, who averaged 18.9 points and 13.6 rebounds last season as a junior.
