The Cats were not one of his top choices before, but now they seem to be right in the mix.

"I was very excited to get that offer," said McGaha. "Coach Stoops had came to my school to watch tape of me before the San Diego State Nike Combine and was impressed. He said he was just as impressed with me at the Combine and told my Father that he was going to offer. We got the official letter yesterday."

While he is elated about the Cats and their offer, he does not want to name a leader just yet.

"I have no favorites. There are plenty of schools I am interested in."

Some of those schools include Washington, Nebraska, Utah, Cal, Vanderbilt, and BYU. Those were just some he named off the top of his head, but insists that he is still wide open.

Cal came by the school yesterday and Nebraska did last week. San Diego State will be by next week.

This summer, Chris will attend the Stanford Nike Combine and the elite 11 tryouts in Las Vegas with Moon Valley quarterback, and best friend Brian Wriston. The two will also take in the UA passing league tournament and an ASU camp.

There is concern over McGaha's 2.2 core GPA, but he is taking his SAT this Saturday and hopes to get a high enough score to make it a non-factor. He got an 860 on his Pre-SAT. Chris will also take some summer courses to raise his GPA.
