Lineman Excited By Missouri Visit

The Missouri Tigers are targeting lineman for their 2014 recruiting class. One of the many unofficial visitors to their annual spring game was a 3-star lineman with a Tiger offer who fills in about it and his recruitment.

Last Saturday, 2014 OT prospect Frank Ragnow 6’6” 286 Chanhassen (MN) took an unofficial visit to Missouri for the Tigers’ Spring Game. Afterwards, he took time to speak with, and he talked about his Missouri visit.

“(My Missouri visit) was really exciting! I really, really like the whole coaching staff, and then the facilities are top-notch,” said Ragnow. “We didn’t really get a chance to look around campus. I got to look at the weight room and everything. Then, I got a chance to sit down with the coach, and that’s when he offered me.”

“I talked to Coach Henson the most,” said Ragnow. “And, the head coach offered me………………………………………….. Coach Pinkel said that they really like me.”

Ragnow currently holds offers from Florida State, Minnesota, Pittsburgh, and South Florida, in addition to Missouri.

He’s taken unofficial visits to a number of schools, including Iowa State, Nebraska, Northwestern, Notre Dame, and Wisconsin. He said that all of those schools are showing a lot of interest in him.

Ragnow said that “hopefully” he'll get more offers. He doesn’t have a timetable for a decision.

“I don’t really have a timetable right now,” explained Ragnow. “I’m kind of just trying to enjoy it.”

Ragnow reports a 5.0 forty-yard dash, to go along with a 26” standing vertical. He repped 225 pounds in the bench press 18 times. He also reported a bench max of 330 pounds, to go along with personal bests of 275 pounds in the power clean, and 450 pounds in the squat.

Ragnow rated his interest in Missouri as “pretty high”. He said that he will probably make a return visit to Missouri with his parents over the summer. He said that he likes the fact that Missouri is in the SEC.

“The SEC is the SEC,” explained Ragnow. “It’s the best conference that there is.”

But, Ragnow said that the individual school is a bigger factor than the conference.
