Beard picked up a commitment from Marcus Carr, the No. 1 ranked transfer in college basketball this offseason, on Saturday. Carr’s the seventh transfer Beard has hauled in since becoming the Longhorns’ new head coach. Texas basketball has a legitimate case of being a top-five team entering the 2021-22 season.
It’s safe to say Texas Tech is going to miss Beard… a lot. Not only is he a brilliant X’s and O’s guy, he’s a terrific recruiter. Mahomes, in particular, is sad Beard is doing so well for a rival program.
Seahawks safety Quandre Diggs, a Texas alum, sent Mahomes a message on Saturday. He thanked him and the Red Raiders for Beard.
Chris Beard going crazy!! Thanks @PatrickMahomes

Patrick Mahomes had a pretty hilarious response. Check it out below.

Chris Beard worked wonders at Texas Tech, turning it into a serious contender. One can only imagine what he’ll be able to do at Texas with a few years under his belt.
The Longhorns are more than ready to take the jump from tournament team to a true national championship contender. They consistently underperformed with Shaka Smart – who left Austin for Marquette – at the helm.
Can Beard be the one who finally leads Texas to the promised land? If he does, he’ll have one sad fan in Mahomes.
