Houston Offers Whitehouse Quarterback Patrick Mahomes
Whitehouse's star quarterback and pitcher Patrick Mahomes continues to draw the interest of big-time college programs, the latest being Houston, which offered Mahomes a scholarship today, according to Whitehouse head football coach Adam Cook.
That makes three football offers for the Whitehouse quarterback. He already holds scholarship offers from Rice and Texas Tech, the latter of which he is attending this weekend for the Red Raiders' spring game.
It appears the Cougars have no issue with Mahomes playing both football and baseball -- the Wildcats' star junior pitcher already has offers from Houston, Arkansas and Arizona for baseball and will likely be a high pick in the 2014 MLB First-Year Player Draft.
Mahomes was the ETSN.fm Football Super Team Newcomer of the Year after posting staggering numbers in his first season as Whitehouse’s starting quarterback. He threw for more than 3,800 yards, 46 touchdowns, and nine interceptions while rushing for six more scores as the Wildcats finished 10-2 with a Class 4A Division II Region II second-round playoff appearance.
