Texas prospect Drew Gause is one of the best 2 sport stars in America, and he currently lists 4 favorites. "I like Stanford, UCLA, Georgia Tech, and Missouri the best. I have offers from all of them," Gause said.
What does he like about each of his favorites?
Stanford: "It's ideal for football and baseball. Great academics
also." (Note: Drew has already begun the long Stanford application process,
to be eligible for a scholarship.)
Georgia Tech: "They have great academics too, and both sports are
UCLA: "I talked to Coach Bienemy, and I like them."
Mizzou: "It's the only school that I have not talked to the baseball

Drew will entertain coaches from Stanford and UCLA this week as they come to
Texas for in-home visits with the star athlete. He has set official visits to
Georgia Tech on December 12th, and Missouri on December 19th. No matter what
