Recruiting Letter to a Cat

College writes recruiting letter to a cat owned by QB prospect

By Michael Carvell

Rice University came up with a creative way to catch the attention of a top football prospect.

This week, Rice co-offensive coordinator Billy Lynch, sent a recruiting letter to a … cat.

This is a true story.

The cat is owned by Texas quarterback J.T. Granato, according to the Houston Chronicle’s Joseph Duarte.

So Rice sent a letter addressed to “Kitty” Granato. Here’s what Lynch wrote:

“As you know we’re trying to convince J.T. Rice is the place for him. I know you’d like to keep him close so he can feed you and change the litter box. Please help us to get him to choose us. Paw me if you have any questions.”

If you thought this was some kind of cat and mouse act, think again. Curiosity must’ve killed the cat because … it worked.

On Thursday night, Granato let the cat out of the bag by committing to Rice.

Maybe it's just because it's rice doing it and not some SEC program, but I actually got a chuckle out of it. Think it's an improvement over the sketches of players in college jerseys.
