New Texas Tech assistant coach Alvin "Pooh" Williamson joined the Sports Shack Tuesday to talk about his hiring to the Red Raider Basketball staff.

Williamson comes from the TCU staff last season and played for Tubby Smith in the early 90's at Tulsa when they made runs in the NCAA Tournament to the Sweet 16.

Williamson talked about the recruiting trail for the Red Raiders and the challenges this late in the recruiting period and building a program from the ground up in Lubbock.
