Terrence Shannon Jr is in elite dunker. You can see by the highlights above from his sophomore season that he isn't afraid to rock the rim over anyone and everyone. His specialty though, through two seasons at Texas Tech, has been the fastbreak tomahawk jam. That dunk, and the steal that usually precedes it, really gets the crowd on their feet.

That's why when I saw Terrence Shannon's new endorsement deal with Las Brisas Steakhouse and Table 82 I knew it was a perfect fit.

Just imagine going into either restaurant and ordering the Number One. No, it isn't a combo place from a diner or fast food joint. This is a high-end, 40 ounce, tomahawk steak served with the bone and some duck fat fries with the house special dunking sauce. Also, throw in some of that lobster mac and cheese, I'm not driving.

Great deal for Terrence Shannon, obviously, but also great for the rest of the basketball team which will no doubt have their chance to dine out with Shannon at his newly endorsed places. Both Table 82 and Las Brisas are natural fits with the Texas Tech athletes. Especially Table 82 as you see the Texas Tech decor lining the walls above Shannon's head in the photo above.

The Red Raiders Men's Basketball team will also be eating well at Raising Canes with Kevin McCullar locking in a deal with the fast-food chicken strip joint earlier this offseason.

McCullar also has some pretty sweet gear he's selling on his website. Which you can check out below.
