4-star Diamond Lockhart picks the Big 12
"Diamond decided on Texas Tech for a few reasons," Hegwood said. "One, their educational and tutoring program is excellent. Two, the coaching staff has been wonderful to her and showed their dedication and faith that she would come back stronger than ever and never wavered from that during her ACL injury. That meant a lot to her, they have a strong, solid coaching staff and basketball program, and Diamond believes they will bring the best out of her and continue to help her to reach the next level."
Lockhart is the fourth player in the 2013 class to commit to Texas Tech. She joins DFW teammate Jasmine Caston of Plano, Texas, a 5-10 guard; Jamaika Hughes of Fort Worth, Texas, a 5-9 guard; and Karla Middlebrook of Blue Springs, Mo., a 5-9 guard.

"I chose Texas Tech because I love the dedication coach (Kristi) Curry and coach Shereka (Wright), and the other coaches (they) have in the program," Caston said. "Coach Curry is the most down to earth person I know , but I also know that business is business and to get better you have to work hard, which I know she will bring the best out of me."
Caston, who is rated a four-star prospect by ESPN HoopGurlz in the 2013 class, is the third player to commit to the Lady Raiders in the rising senior class. She joins three-star guard Jamaika Hughes of Fort Worth, Texas, and three-star guard Karyla Middlebrook of Blue Springs, Mo., in Tech's 2013 recruiting class.
