Kingsbury visits Tyler for Texas Tech Alumni Touranment

TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

New Texas Tech head football coach Kliff Kingsbury and men's basketball coach Tubby Smith visited Tyler Monday for the 9th Annual J.L. Gulley, Jr. Memorial Golf Tournament at Willow Brook Country Club.

Kingsbury may be a Red Raider, but he was recently an Aggie.  Kingsbury was Texas A&M's offensive coordinator in 2012, coaching Johnny Manziel to the Heisman Trophy.

"He's (Manziel) an incredible talent and very proud of being from Tyler," said Kingsbury.  "He spoke about that a bunch. Just a fantastic player and phenom really. A guy that I was lucky to coach in my career. I'm excited to watch him and he progresses."

Kingsury says East Texas is loaded with talent.  He's already scored big in Whitehouse.

Wildcats star receiver Dylan Cantrell will be in Lubbock next season.  Whitehouse star quarterback Patrick Mahomes has committed to sign with Texas Tech in 2014.

"I'm really excited about Dylan," said Kingsbury.  "A really hard worker. He's probably gained 15 pounds since I saw him this past fall. We expect him to play immediately. They (Whitehouse) have really good players. The staff has done a tremendous job and run a really good offense that we like to watch and see players come out of."
