Texas Tech freshman guard Zhaire Smith turning pro

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) Zhaire Smith is turning pro after a standout freshman season at Texas Tech that included several highlight dunks and the Red Raiders going to the NCAA Elite Eight for the first time.

Smith said in a Twitter post that he is signing with an agent. The 6-foot-5 Smith was no longer listed Wednesday on Texas Tech's roster.

In the tweet, he wrote, "After careful consideration I've decided to forgo my collegiate career and sign with Roc Nation. Again I want to thank my family, friends, coaches, teammates, and TT fans. Your support has been great. I know this is the best decision for me and I hope to make y'all proud!"
