Cypress Fairbanks coach Ed Pustejovsky played his collegiate ball at Texas A&M, so it's no surprise that his star running back's third offer has come from the Fighting Texas Aggies.
Junior Sam McGuffie didn't know what to think when his coach asked to see him in his office upon entering athletic period this week.
"I thought I was in trouble or something," McGuffie said. "When I got in his office he said that the Texas A&M coaches had seen enough and that an official offer letter was in the mail.
"I was excited and Coach seemed pretty excited himself," he said. "He said that Coach (Dennis) Franchione had called and officially offered over the phone."
The Aggies join Texas Tech and the Kansas Jayhawks as McGuffie's three offers going into the last dead weekend of recruiting.
McGuffie unofficially took in the Aggie campus during the A&M-Oklahoma game and was thoroughly impressed with the atmosphere.
"I loved the rah, rah stuff," he said. "It was wild. When they rock back and forth is the best. Everyone was kind of down after the game but all the coaches came up and congratulated me on my season. I was shocked they knew me.
"I talked with (Michael) Goodson real quick and he remembered me," he said. "They have a lot of good running backs."
While the early recruitment has taken McGuffie by surprise, he has no favorites. However, he knows how he wants to be used on the field.
"I think I'd be in a deep depression if I didn't get the ball in my hands," he laughs. "I don't really want to play defense in college. I'd like the run the ball or catch it in space to use my athleticism."
