Texas Tech Football Recruit Punched A Female Basketball Player In The Face

Nigel Bethel was a highly touted defensive back in the incoming recruiting class at Texas Tech.


According to reports from CBS and the Lubbock Avalanche Journal, there was an incident between Bethel and women’s basketball player Amber Battle at the school’s recreation center. The incident ended with Bethel punching Battle in the face.

The hit was violent enough that Battle will require surgery to repair a broken bone in her face.

My guess? She posterized him and he got mad. How else does a fight happen at a rec center?
