Texas Tech knows better than anyone what it is like having a Mahomes lead a college team on the field, and the school wasted no time offering a soccer scholarship to an up-and-coming prospect.

The Red Raiders offered a 2039 soccer scholarship to Sterling Skye Mahomes, who is the newborn daughter of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and fiancee Brittany Matthews:

An early offer, but worth the wait. We'll be ready for her! @PatrickMahomes @brittanylynne8 https://t.co/3H44XFoKLw

Brittany Matthews @brittanylynne8

❤️❤️❤️ https://t.co/8NoSG2iYsc

The offer even came with a national letter of intent:

Sterling Mahomes is less than a month old. She got a national letter of intent for soccer scholarship offer from Texas Tech 2 days after she was born. What took so long? https://t.co/jwaxccF9F8

Harrison Roberts of KLTV noted the school "often sends Letters of Intent to children, including the children of faculty. The Letters of Intent are intended to be a cute gesture."

Of course, the letters also don't go to the daughter of Texas Tech athletics royalty often, either. 

If Sterling ends up playing soccer, chances are there will be a spot waiting for her at her father's school.
