What better way to deliver the news?

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski had a huge game in Sunday's win over the Steelers, catching nine passes for 168 yards.

He might have made his biggest impact afterwards, however.

Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury enlisted fellow Red Raider alum Danny Amendola and Gronk to record a video informing Texas Tech walk-on defensive back Justus Parker he is now on scholarship.

Check it out:

That's just tremendous. Congratulations Justus.

The Red Raiders will take on USF in the Birmingham Bowl this Saturday at noon ET on ESPN.
