Visit Solidifies Mahomes' commitment to Tech

Whitehouse multi-sport athlete Patrick Mahomes told RaiderPower.com Sunday his official visit to Lubbock only solidified his commitment to play football and baseball at Texas Tech. The 6-foot-3, 220-pound quarterback accounted for over 5,000 total yards and over 60 touchdowns as a senior on the gridiron and is a pro baseball prospect.

Texas Tech QB commit Patrick Mahomes became more confident in his decision after spending time with coaches and fellow offensive recruits in Lubbock this weekend.

This weekend many of the offensive recruits visited Texas Tech to get a glimpse of who they will be working with during their time as a Red Raider. Mahomes said coming to Lubbock was great and that he loves it more each time.

"I mainly hung out with Cameron Batson, Jakari Dillard, Ian Sadler," Mahomes said. "It was cool we were all able to come on the same visit and spend time with people who I will be working with next fall."

During the visit the recruits went to Main Event and got to challenge the coaches to a game of laser tag. Mahomes said that OL commit Robert Castaneda scored so many points that the recruits were able to beat the coaches.

During the visit junior WR Bradley Marquez hosted Mahomes, which makes sense because both are multi-sport athletes.

Marquez was selected by the Mets in the 16th round of the 2011 MLB Draft and plays in the Mets' minor league organization every summer. Mahomes is a pro baseball prospect but plans on playing both football and baseball for Texas Tech.

Mahomes said after this visit he is impatient to get to come to Tech.

"It solidified my commitment," Mahomes said. "This makes me more ready to be there. I can't wait to get started this summer."
