One of East Texas’ most promising two-sport athletes in the 2015 class got his first offer Wednesday afternoon.

Lufkin’s Trey Cumbie said via Twitter that he was offered by Rice to play baseball.

The left-handed Cumbie, a 2015 prospect, pitched for Lufkin this spring and is expected to start at quarterback for the Panthers this fall.

Cumbie, who measured 6-2 1/2, 189 pounds at the May 19 ETSN.fm Football Recruiting Combine at APEC training facility in Tyler, will be Lufkin’s second consecutive starting quarterback with a college baseball option. Cumbie replaces fellow left-hander Tyler Stubblefield, who signed with Texas A&M to play baseball.

The 6-foot-4, 205-pound Stubblefield was a third-team selection to the ETSN.fm East Texas Super Team at quarterback as a senior, when he threw for 3,582 yards, 39 touchdowns, and 17 interceptions and ran for 234 yards and nine scores. Lufkin went 9-4 with a Class 5A Division II Region II semifinal appearance.

Lufkin fans got a glimpse of Cumbie’s football ability at the May 24 spring game, when he completed 16 of 24 passes for 219 yards and two touchdowns.
