'Cats Surprise with Offer

Over the last week the Texas State staff has been on the hunt to add talent to the 2014 class and the offers are coming out hot and heavy. Here's the latest on a Greater Houston athlete that was offered.

Defensive Coordinator Craig Navair had some good news for Kishawn McClain, a 5'11" 190lb defensive back from Rosenberg Terry HS. It was his first scholarship offer.

"I was pretty excited because Texas State was my first offer. I was stunned and excited. I didn't know that they were recruiting me until that day. I've been looking more into it now and I like the campus it's pretty nice, and I like the coaches," said McClain.

Along with the Bobcats, UNT has extended. The coaching staff has been in solid contact and wants McClain to come to San Marcos later this summer.

Although McClain says he didn't know that he was being recruited by TX ST, the Bobcat staff had stopped by previously during spring practice and let him know that they liked the way he played. It was just the offer that caught him off guard.

So far McClain is being told by the coaching staff that they feel he can play corner. Has has 4.52 speed, good athleticism and agility where he can transition full time to the defensive skill position.

Last year for the Rangers he started both ways, as the QB and FS. He rushed for over 1500 yards, scored 20 TD's on the ground and threw for another 13 TD's.

With two offers already in hand, more are sure to follow. Texas, Texas Tech, Baylor, TCU, Texas A&M, West Virginia, Cal, USC, LSU and many more have been in contact ranging from light to strong.

McClain does have plans to attend Texas State's satellite camp at Cinco Ranch HS on June 12th.
