North Texas Offers Whitehouse Quarterback Patrick Mahomes

North Texas on Monday afternoon became the fourth school to offer Whitehouse’s Patrick Mahomes for football.

The Mean Green visited the Wildcats and extended the 6-foot-3, 200-pound gunslinger an offer, according to his Twitter account.

Nevertheless, Mahomes remains a solid verbal pledge to Texas Tech, to which he committed recently during a weekend trip to Lubbock for the Red Raiders’ spring game. Mahomes, who is also a highly-touted baseball prospect, will have the opportunity to play both sports at Texas Tech.

Mahomes’ football offer list includes Texas Tech, North Texas, Houston, and Rice. He also has baseball offers from Arizona, Arkansas, and Houston. North Texas does not field a varsity baseball program.

There’s the possibility that Mahomes could be a high draft pick in the 2014 MLB amateur draft. The most recent East Texan who faced the decision to play two sports in college or go pro was Henderson’s Tyrell Jenkins, now a pitching prospect in the St. Louis Cardinals organization.

Jenkins signed with Baylor as a two-sport recruit in Feb. 2010, but was drafted as a supplemental pick following the first round that June. Jenkins went 50th overall and later received a $1.3 million signing bonus from the Cardinals, according to Fox Sports.
