Texas ATH Sets 2 Visits, Names Favorites

<b>Drew Gause</b> discusses his favorites, his future and more in this indepth interview.

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 good."
UCLA: "I talked to Coach Bienemy, and I like them."
Mizzou: "It's the only school that I have not talked to the baseball coach yet. Still, they have good football and their football coaches said I can play baseball too."

Though football is his ticket to a full scholarship, Drew's best future may be on the baseball diamond. He batted .387 last season, had 10 stolen bases, and led his team in every major statistical category. Gause has achieved the highest ranking at just about every showcase he's attended, and named an all-star numerous times over. He is what baseball scouts call, "A Five Tool Player."

"I talk to a lot of pro teams like the Brewers and Dodgers. I have been projected as a first through fourth rounder by a lot of people. I really don't know exactly where I'll go in the draft yet though. I'm just listening to everyone, and I'll decide what to do later."

If Drew is drafted high enough, would he skip playing college football altogether?

"I'm not sure what it would take for me to pass on football. I know that if I go in the first round I will definitely turn pro, but I'm not sure what I'd do after that."

Has Gause considered playing pro baseball, and college football at the same time?

"Yeah, I'm looking at that as an option. I know guys like Cedric Benson at Texas play minor league ball and make like $300,000 during baseball season, then they come back and play football in the off season. It's a possibility."

In his Senior football season, Gause had 1,100yds rushing and 200+ receiving. He was the first player at his high school in 54 years to run for over 1,000 yards in a season.

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 happens with baseball, Drew says he will definitely sign a college football scholarship in February, and sort his options at a later time. He is fully qualified.
