Texas 3-Star Talks Missouri Offer

Despite the move to the SEC and an added focus on recruiting Florida and Georgia, the Missouri Tigers continue to recruit the state of Texas heavily, and are keeping that pipeline open to them. We check in with a 3-star Mizzou offer about his recruitment.

ShowMeMizzou.com spoke with 2013 DE prospect Tyus Bowser  6'3"  220  Tyler (TX), who reports having received a Missouri offer.  And, Bowser is interested in Missouri.

Bowser said that the Missouri coach came by to watch him during the spring.  Later, his high school coach informed him of the Missouri offer.

Bowser reports offers from Louisiana-Lafayette, Memphis, Texas Tech, West Virginia, and Wyoming, in addition to Missouri.  He said that he's also receiving interest from Oklahoma State and Oregon.

Bowser, who also plays basketball, reports a personal best of 4.52 seconds in the forty-yard dash, a 34" vertical jump, bench press, and squat.  He also threw the discus for Tyler's track team.

He said that he hasn't taken any unofficial visits, nor does he plan to do so, but Bowser plans to take official visits during the season, although he hasn't scheduled any of those.  He said that he'd like to learn more about Missouri, and that he wants to visit Missouri.

I asked Bowser when he expects to make a final decision?

"I don't know,"  replied Bowser.  "Probably after football season.  Probably around that time."

Bowser talked about his criteria for choosing a school.

"Mostly, it's education,"  said Bowser.  "And, just trying to fit in.  Make sure that I'm comfortable there."

I asked Bowser if distance from home would be a factor?

"Not much of a factor,"  replied Bowser.   "But, I kind of want to get away (from home)."

I asked Bowser what he thought about the possibility of playing in the SEC?

"I guess it just means that you'd probably have to work harder,"  explained Bowser.  "With it being the best conference in the country, you're always going to play great players.  So, you just got to work on getting yourself ready to play the best."
