Missouri Prospect Likes Illinois

One of Missouri's finest wide receiver prospects says the Fighting Illini are one his early favorites.

Tom Mulvihill, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound, wide receiver from Kirkwood (Mo.) St. John Vianney will be a prospect to watch in 2003.

Mulvihill was named 1st team all-metro and 2nd team all-state as a junior. He set a school record with 262 receiving yards in a single game last season.

"No scholarship offers yet," Mulvihill said. "I'm getting a lot of mail. Notre Dame, Georgia Tech and Indiana are sending the most hand-written letters.

"My early leaders are Notre Dame, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri and UCLA."

Mulvihill had 640 receiving yards as a sophomore and 870 as a junior. This year he should set a school record for career receiving yards.

Notre Dame, Indiana and Missouri are the schools that Mulvihill will camp at this summer.
