Recruiting: Stephen McGee Update

The Horns have failed so far to land a quarterback in this year's recruiting class. Nor did they snag a single signalcaller in last year's class .</P>

Meanwhile, Longhorn back-up QB Chance Mock is considering a transfer to a D-II school to enhance his NFL Draft prospects with more playing time in his final year of eligibility next season.

As such, a lot of folks expect the Burnt Orange to keep after some of the state’s already committed QB prospects, such as Oklahoma State commit Bobby Reid.

Well, he's not the only one being targeted. You can now include a certain passer hailing from Burnet, Texas.

Thursday night, we caught up with Coach McGee, father of A&M QB commit Stephen McGee, to see if Texas had recently picked up the pace.

"Yes, they have," McGee's father said. "They've been by the school to talk to him and have been sending him a ton of mail."


We'll have more on this story in the Inside Scoop, but we'd be surprised to see McGee wavering on his oral commitment to Texas A&M head coach Dennis Franchione.

Having said that, the Longhorns have apparently yet to concede defeat and are now actively pursuing the 6-3, 210/215-pound signal-caller.

McGee, a teammate of current UT commit Jordan Shipley, committed to the Aggies over Georgia and Texas in mid-April. McGee, Rhett Bomar (OU) and John David Booty (USC) were the original three QBs Texas pursued for Signing Day ’04.
