Recruits won't get an earlier start than this.
Sterling Mahomes, the newborn daughter of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and his fiancée Brittany Matthews, already has a letter of intent to play for dad's alma mater. Texas Tech sent the letter dated Feb. 22, two days after Sterling's birth, for a soccer scholarship.
Mahomes and Matthews each shared the letter to her Instagram story Tuesday. It's signed by athletic director Kirby Hocutt.

The letter is more of a congratulatory honor for one of the school's most famous athletes than a real offer, but it's the thought that counts nonetheless.
Mahomes played football and baseball at the school while Matthews played soccer at nearby UT Tyler. She is a fitness entrepreneur and co-owner of the Kansas City NWSL club. It kicks off its inaugural season on April 9 as part of the NWSL Challenge Cup series.
Mahomes and Matthews announced Sterling's birth on Feb. 21 after a whirlwind 13 months that included a Super Bowl title in 2020 and an engagement in the fall. Sterling has received welcome honors and gifts from the Kansas City mayor, Chiefs players and celebrities around the country.
