McGuffie was on campus this afternoon to fill out paperwork for classes that begin Monday at Rice.
He is perhaps the highest profile recruit to ever join the Rice Football program.
McGuffie was a 4-Star recruit coming out of Cy-Fair High School; rated 7th best RB in the country as a senior last year. He played in the US Army All-Star Game. As a freshman at Michigan last season he was second on the team among all Wolverine Running Backs with 486 yards.
McGuffie will have to sit out the 2009 season by virtue of transfer rules and will have 3 years of eligibility remaining.
We'll call Sam later for his comments on what is one of the biggest days in Rice Football history!
What a way to start 2009!! Wow...!
