The son of retired MLB pitcher Pat Mahomes, Patrick Mahomes II played football, basketball, and baseball through high school, committing to Texas Tech despite being selected by the Detroit Tigers in the 2014 MLB Draft. The Tyler, Texas native played both football and baseball for the Red Raiders until his junior year when he quit baseball to focus solely on improving as a quarterback.
