Sam McGuffie Update

Cy-Fair running back Sam McGuffie put up some incredible numbers during his junior season and sent his stock soaring through the roof. He has already picked up three scholarship offers and expects more to come in after signing day. McGuffie has become great friends with one of the top 2008 prospects in the Lone Star State and will likely follow him to several junior days.

"I am going to Oklahoma's junior day with J.B. Shugarts this weekend. We will probably chill up there Saturday and come back up Sunday," Sam McGuffie said. "We're real good friends. Whatever junior day that J.B. goes to, I will go with him to every single one."

McGuffie has been invited to attend junior days at Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Northwestern. He was also in College Station over the weekend for Texas A&M's junior day.

"It was nice. They have good facilities and cool coaches," McGuffie said about Texas A&M.

McGuffie has already received scholarship offers from three Big 12 schools and expects more to come shortly after signing day.

"Texas Tech, Texas A&M, and Kansas are the only ones that have offered right now," McGuffie said. "Everyone is waiting for the 7th to come by."

The Cy-Fair running back ran down a list of his top five schools at this point in time.

"Right now, I would say Michigan, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Florida and Georgia Tech," McGuffie said. "My top five changes all the time though."

Where do the Texas Longhorns fit in?

"Their running backs coach (Oscar Giles) came out to watch me practice. I wish they would say something, but you know how the Longhorns are. I don't even think they have offered anybody a scholarship yet."

Back in September, McGuffie mentioned that he might want to venture out-of-state. He wants to see what other places have to offer and experience life outside of Texas.

"I'm a kid," McGuffie said. "I want to experience different things and different places. Going out-of-state would be the best way to do that."

The 5-foot-10.5, 175-pound McGuffie racked up one of the most impressive single season rushing totals in recent memory during his junior campaign. He rushed for over 3,200 yards and scored 44 touchdowns on the ground at Cy-Fair.
