"I've been sick the last few days. And my phone died too," said Houston Cy-Fair running back Sam McGuffie.
And then his phone died again.
Fortunately he grabbed friend's phone and a few minutes later he called back.
"I've had a cold or the flu or something. I just got out of the house again tonight -- I'm at the movies."
The good news -- McGuffie has his announcement set.
"I'm announcing, not this Sunday, but the next Sunday ... Sunday night on Channel 2 in Houston -- the same show Daryl Stonum announced on."
Michigan is in a strong position for the Houston RB phenom.
