The words Davide Moretti wanted to share on his social media channels to greet the fans and the University of Texas Tech:
“Red Raider nation, there are so many things I would like to say.. First off I want to say that it was a pleasure to play in front of the best crowd in the nation for the last three years. You guys pushed me to be a better player, a great role model and most importantly you gave me a reason to leave it all out on the floor, every single game.
I have never been more committed to a program than I was to Texas Tech, it was an honor to represent one of the elite programs in college basketball on and off the court.
I have memories that will last a lifetime and teammates that I consider brothers.
I am sure this past year would have been another one to remember if only we could have played till the end.
It has been the toughest decision of my life, trust me.. but I thought this could be a great opportunity for me to pursue my dream.
I hope you all will understand.
Lastly I wanted to thank Coach Beard and all the great coaches that I had the pleasure to be coached by, you changed my life forever, you pushed me to be the best version of myself and I wouldn’t be the player and the person I am today without you all.
You all are my second family and I truly mean it.
I will always be part of that Elite8 team, member of that BigXII champion team and member of the first team to ever reach the Final Four, but most importantly
I will always be a Red Raider 👆🏼🔴⚫️ Thank you from the bottom of my heart”
