Texas Tech basketball has been in a slump as of late, but Jahmi'us Ramsey has been the best freshman in the Big 12 for the 2020 season. The Big 12 coaches agree.
Ramsey was named the Big 12 Freshman of the Year and was also listed on the All-Freshman team along with teammate Terrance Shannon Jr. Davide Moretti was listed on the Honorable Mention team.
Ramsey is the first Red Raider to be named Big 12 Freshman of the Year along with Big 12 honors. He averaged 15 points per game, which is good enough for top five in the Big 12. Ramsey was also named to the All-Big 12 second team and the All-Big 12 Newcomer team.
