When Baytown (Texas) Lee quarterback Drew Tate flashed the Houston Cougar sign while being introduced on Sunday at the U.S. Army All-America Bowl, many Texas A&M fans figured that the Aggie commitment was a lost cause.
They were right.
“Drew and I called A&M today and told them that he’s not coming,” said Dick Olin, the Baytown Lee coach and Tate’s stepfather said.
“After the coaching change Drew didn’t feel right and decided it was best to go a different direction.”
That different direction could be Iowa, where he’s already visited, Houston or Baylor. He’s scheduled to visit Houston this weekend and is working on a date with the Bears.
Tate is ranked as the nation’s No. 14 pro-style quarterback.
