Mathews Solidifies Houston Commitment
"Another linebacker recruit had committed (to Texas Tech) before me, so it was a done deal," said Mathews. "Coach Mainord called me Friday. He was looking out for me. Said there was no point in coming up." Mathews, who held a soft verbal commitment to Houston entering the weekend, said there was a chance he could've switched his commitment to the Red Raiders after a visit. Now, he has given his full commitment to the Cougars. "Friday, it was official," said Mathews. "I told the (Houston) coaching staff I'm solid." After taking his official visit to UH about a month ago, he said he will not be returning to the University before signing day. He will most likely visit during spring practice. If he had it his way, it would be summer already. The linebacker said he is ready to come in and compete for a starting spot right away.
