Mahomes heads to Texas Tech

Whitehouse three star athlete Patrick Mahomes has not been drafted through ten rounds of the Major League Baseball draft.  Late Friday night, Mahomes tweeted "Well after an intriguing opportunity to play Major League Baseball... I will be moving to Lubbock tomorrow!"

Mahomes could still be drafted on Saturday, but the guaranteed money is far less on day three of the draft.  Mahomes has already signed with Texas Tech where he will play football and baseball.  The Texas High School Football Player of the Year, will be the backup quarterback for the Red Raiders.

Visiting Tyler last week, Texas Tech head football coach Kliff Kingsbury said Mahomes had great potential.

"He's tremendous," said Kingsbury.  "Very raw, a lot has to do with playing so many sports. He's never focused just on his technique and fundamentals. His upside is very high. He's a tremendous competitor. I can't wait to get around him and start to coach him up."
