Texas Tech went only 16-21 in the three seasons Patrick Mahomes played for the Red Raiders. But he left behind plenty of pleasant memories.

Mahomes completed 63.5 percent of his passes for 11,252 yards with 93 touchdowns and 29 interceptions in his college career, while rushing for 845 yards and 22 touchdowns.

Since his college days, Mahomes has gone 10th overall in the NFL draft and earned league MVP and Super Bowl MVP honors. He led the Chiefs to the championship last season.

His alma mater is honoring him by naming him commencement speaker for the spring semester.

“We’ve got the MVP of commencement speakers next Saturday,” Texas Tech announced on Twitter.

The ceremony will happen virtually next week.

  1. Mahomes will set another record as the youngest NFL player to ever give a college commencement speech.
    But Act II, how about 2 Super Bowl wins in a row ?

  2. Apparently, he works as an electrical engineer in the off-season. That will be the focus of his speech.

  3. Did he graduate? Not sure many 3 year students graduate… Why graduate when you can make millions by not graduating?

    College is the biggest scam in the country.

  4. Not to be THAT guy, but can we please stop using “virtual” wrong. Virtual means not real, simulated. Mahomes speech will be “remote”, but it will be a real speech.

    Just like the draft and everything else people keep calling “virtual”. As Inigo Montoya once said “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means”.

  5. A remote or virtual speech is much better than setting through a real speech, you can be drinking beer and setting in a comfortable chair

  6. he was 16-21 in college, what exactly does Reid see worth 2 1st round picks.

  7. P.S. I’d want to be a teammate of Patrick – the way he leads by example and is willing to put himself on the line is inspirational. He has the intangible quality of moxie. Some guys have good arms and legs. But when the football is snapped, no one does more with it than Patrick right now. He also appears to be a genuinely great person too. His teammates seem to step up their game when he demands it. But he demands no more out of others than he is willing to give himself.
