Mahomes getting heavy interest from TCU

Whitehouse, Texas 2014 quarterback Patrick Mahomes is getting heavy interest from TCU among others.

TCU is still looking to add one quarterback to their 2013 class but it's never too early to get a start on the crop of next year's prospects.

The Frogs have shown interest to a few signal callers from the 2014 class including Foster Sawyer, Grayson Muehlstein and Ronald Monroe; all who have visited TCU this season. Another top prospect that has made his way to the Ft. Worth campus is Whitehouse, Texas quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Mahomes put up huge numbers in his first year under center. In leading the Wildcats to a 10-2 record, the 6-foot-3, 190-pounder threw for 3,839 yards and 46 touchdowns. He also added 6 touchdowns on the ground.

Whitehouse ended their season a few weeks ago with a loss to Wylie East. Despite the loss, Mahomes did his part throwing for 450 yards with 5 touchdowns and no interceptions.

"We lost 56-63, we just couldn't pull it out in the end," he said. "I threw for 450 against them. I rushed for 60 in the first half but because of sacks I ended up with 35."

Since his season has ended, recruiting has picked up. A few college coaches have already stopped by his school recently. Despite no offers at the moment, the discussions have been promising with the schools showing interest.

"TCU came down and I've also talked a little to Texas Tech and SMU also," Mahomes said. "No one has talked about an offer, all three of them want me to get up there and visit and actually sit down and talk to them. I plan on doing that in the spring. They all want me to get up there for a junior day and they just want me to talk to them."

Mahomes' lone visit to TCU this season came when the Horned Frogs took on then No. 2 Kansas State. Since that time the signal caller has continued to watch how the Frogs' season played out.

"I've been watching the last few games," he said. "I watched Oklahoma in the second half, I had to take the SAT in the morning but I've watched a lot of their games now that they're showing me a lot of interest."

With great size and athleticism to play quarterback, not to mention eye-opening stats, Mahomes will receive plenty of interest throughout the recruiting process. He says one school is already showing more than the others and he in return says he has a high interest in them; and not just for football.

"I'd have to say TCU is," Mahomes said of the school showing the most interest. "It's one of the schools that I have an interest in. I've looked there before in baseball so it helps out for football. I've played in some tournaments up there and really liked their facilities so I was hoping I'd get some interest this spring."
