Texas Tech looking for safeties
By Vince Verhei
When the Texas Tech Red Raiders start spring football, most of the attention will be paid to new quarterback Michael Brewer, taking over for Seth Doege. However, ESPN.com Big 12 blogger David Ubben says the bigger question for the Red Raiders might be at safety, where it's impossible to tell who will start this season:

"Cody Davis was a four-year starter who showed major progress for an improved defense in 2012, and so did fellow senior D.J. Johnson. Tech loses a ton of experience at the position, and new coach Trey Haverty will have his work cut out for him this spring. With a new staff and a lot of turnover at a position, I'll stop short of trying to predict who will fill in for Davis or Johnson. Might we see a converted cornerback?"
