Whitehouse’s Patrick Mahomes Invited to LSU Junior Day
Whitehouse quarterback Patrick Mahomes told ETSN.fm on Monday evening that he’s received his fifth junior day invitation.
The 6-foot-3, 200-pound multisport standout has been invited to LSU’s Feb. 16 junior day. Mahomes has already attended junior days at Texas A&M and Baylor and plans to attend this weekend’s junior day event at Texas Tech.
Mahomes, who also has an SMU junior day invitation for Feb. 16, said he’s unsure if he will go to either event that day. Teammate Jake Parker, a 6-foot, 170-pound receiver, has also been invited to the LSU junior day, so that could be a travel option for the pass-catch duo.
Mahomes already holds offers from Texas Tech and Rice.
Mahomes, who started at free safety as a sophomore, threw for more than 3,800 yards, 46 touchdowns, and nine interceptions while rushing for six more scores as a first-year quarterback starter in 2012, when Whitehouse finished 10-2 with a second-round playoff appearance.
Mahomes, who went 11-3 with a 2.30 earned run average and 90 strikeouts as a sophomore, is also a baseball standout as a pitcher, shortstop, and center fielder. That gives a definite advantage to schools such as Texas A&M, Baylor, Texas Tech, and LSU over SMU, which does not have a baseball program. Mahomes has baseball offers from Arkansas and Arizona.
Right now, Mahomes is concentrating on basketball season. He leads Whitehouse, which is 20-8 overall and 4-3 in District 16-4A, with 20.3 points, 6.7 rebounds, 4.1 steals, and 3.3 assists. The Wildcats are third in the 16-4A standings.
