ShowMeMizzou.com spoke with 2013 TE prospect Jason Reese 6'4" 228 4.61 Euless (TX) Trinity on his way home from his weekend visit to Missouri. Reese talked about his visit, and he updated us on the status of his recruitment.
"My (Missouri) visit went really good," said Reese. "I really enjoyed being there. It was nice! It's a very nice place."
Reese said that he has not yet committed to Missouri, but he said that a commitment to the Tigers "should" happen soon.
"I'm going to go back (home) and talk to my family," explained Reese, who named Missouri as his top choice from among the schools that have shown the required interest in him. "I want to get (my family) up there to check (Missouri) out".
Reese isn't sure when his parents might be able to visit Missouri, but he said that he wants them to visit Missouri and give his choice their stamp of approval.
"I'm not really sure (when that might happen)," explained Reese. "It'll have to be after a little conference that I'll have with them."
Reese was able to shed some light on the current situation with his traveling mates. He said that he was unsure if Salesi Uhatafe had received a Missouri offer. He also said that he thinks Gaius Vaenuku will visit Utah before making a final decision.
Reese doesn't have any other visits planned at present.
Reese said that he expects to see Coach Steckel at his school on Tuesday, and he hopes to have more information for us within the next few days.
I'll have more on Reese later.
