Between football, basketball, and baseball the schedule can get pretty busy for Tulsa (Okla.) Union wide receiver Jeffery Mead.
The 6-5, 180-pound standout has not been on the football field recently but continues to see his offer list grow as his skill set catches the attention of college football coaches across the country. Monday night, he added his latest offer.
"About 10 minutes ago I just got an offer from TCU," Mead said on Monday. "Coach Sharp just called me and told me he liked me and let me know I had a scholarship with them. He explained a little bit about the school and answered all the questions I had."

The Horned Frogs join a list of schools that includes the likes of Arkansas, California, Clemson, Texas A&M, LSU, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State.
It was not long ago when Mead named a top three of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Cal at the Rivals Camp Series in Dallas. Since then, he has seen several offers placed on the table and the activity has caused him to keep more of an open mind at this point in the process.
"The horizons have broadened completely," Mead said. "Schools are talking about playing both sports. It's hard for me to imagine myself not playing two sports at least. I've been playing them all my life so it just feels off. It just feels weird."
Oklahoma and LSU have mentioned the possibility of playing two sports. LSU's basketball program reached out to him shortly after the football program extended an offer. He has yet to pick up an offer in basketball or baseball, but remains hopeful.
This summer he does not have any camp plans, but unofficial visits will probably take place. He does not have any scheduled at this point, but he will travel with his AAU team the Kansas Heat Elite and hopes to visit a few programs as they make their way across the country.
"Unofficial visits probably because as I travel around playing basketball," Mead said. "Like I'm going to Vegas and L.A. this summer and so I'll try to get out and see Cal-Berkeley since they're kind of near L.A. in California and some of the schools in Texas depending on where we go in Texas."
As for trimming his list, Mead is taking his time but does hope to narrow his options to a few programs before the start of the football season.
"Probably I'll try to narrow things down by the middle to end of summer would be my guess," Mead said. "Narrowing things down, not picking yet but kind of putting things in order and seeing what I like."
