Two sports creates options for Texas QB

Austin (Texas) Anderson two-star quarterback Duncan McGee has options, and that's something that's really exciting for him as he enters the third week of his high school football season. The 6-foot-1, 208-pounder already has one football scholarship on his resume and he's also got one in another sport to consider.
"Arizona, Louisiana Tech, TCU, Houston, Army, New Mexico State have been sending me stuff," McGee, who is 6-foot-1 and 208 pounds, said.
"I got an offer from Louisiana Tech about two months ago, and then I got an offer for baseball from Texas Tech, but that's for baseball. The only football offer is from Louisiana Tech."
Tech has talked also to him about where he could fit into the football program.
"I've already talked about walking onto Texas Tech football," he said. "I haven't talked to the baseball coach there, but I really like Tech football team. We'll see what happens, but I know my freshman year in college is real stressful and it's a big step from high school to college, having to organize your time. If I can play both and coaches willing to let me I probably will do that.
"It's kind of a tossup right now. I love both sports the same. It's going to be weird not playing one or the other so probably try to play both."
McGee said he's hoping to add more football options before he makes any kind of decision.
"Arizona said they wanted to try to get an offer out to me before the season, but I went to visit them this summer," he said. "We've been talking still, but they haven't offered yet. That would probably be the next closest school to giving me an offer, and then the Army football team has said the same thing."
McGee said he's hoping to get some visits set up here in the next few weeks.
"I'm going to take an official visit for baseball at Texas Tech, and I think I might go to Arizona on our off week for an official visit," he said. "But I'm not sure yet exactly what's going to happen there. I'm definitely going to take an official visit to both places before the season is over."
What about the one school – Louisiana Tech – that has offered him in football?
"When I went to a visit to Louisiana Tech last summer I really liked it," he said. "I haven't had any other offers for football, but they're a place I'd really like to go to. They have good tradition at quarterback, and they have a good offense. The quarterback gets to throw the ball a lot and their baseball team was third in the WAC conference, so they're pretty good there, too. The new staff there is awesome, so I'm really considering them, and I really like the city. I'd definitely like to take an official visit there.
"The main thing going to change my mind is whether the coach will let me do both. I'd like to go somewhere I can try both. I know I can do both and keep up with my classes, but that will probably be the main thing. If they won't let me I might try to look somewhere else that would let me play both, but that'll probably be one of the biggest thing."
