Sam McGuffie, who rushed for 486 yards and 3 TDs and caught 19 passes for 175 yards and another TD as a true freshman at Michigan this year is apparently looking to transfer closer to home. TCU, A&M, Rice and Houston have all been mentioned as possible destinations for the 5'11", 190lb. speedster.
As many of you might recall, McGuffie was all-everything at Cy-Fair High School in the Houston area, racking up an amazing 5,847 rushing yards and 83 TDs in his four years on varsity. Those totals would've been higher had he not been injured half of his senior season. He was 1st Team All-State in 5A, chosen to play in the US Army All-American Bowl, was a four-star recruit on Rivals picking Michigan (his Dad's home state) over offers from USC, Notre Dame, Cal and A&M among others. Even if you don't remember the name Sam McGuffie, you probably do remember THIS.
If he chooses to become a Horned Frog, he would have to sit out the 2009 season per NCAA transfer rules, but could use his redshirt and would thus be playing as a sophomore in 2010...alongside fellow sophomore Waymon James...with Andy Dalton, Jimmy Young, Jeremy Kerley playing as seniors. With that much talent on offense, you will all be singing the praises of one Mike Schultz, guaranteed.
Hopefully he does not end up in College Station, the place where NFL potential goes to die.
