Chesson Excited About Upcoming Mizzou Visit

St. Louis area WR Jehu Chesson II talks about his learning experience at the Army combine and his coming junior day visits

The state of Missouri did not send a large group of prospects to the US Army bowl combine in San Antonio (TX) last week, but the players from the Show-Me state showed very well at the event.

Another player from the class of 2012 to stand out was Ladue (MO) high school WR Jehu Chesson 6'4" 185, 4.5 forty.

ShowMeMizzou.com spoke with  Jehu after his combine to find out how he felt he did and to get the very latest regarding his recruitment.

"I think I did pretty well", said Chesson.

"I went down there with(SLUH QB) Trevor McDonagh. We train together so we met up down there and had a blast."

"I didn't know what to expect going down there. I wanted to use the experience as a measuring stick since I know some of the best of the best were there. I wanted to use it to find out how much and what I still need to work on and get better. It was a great learning experience. I ran a 4.52 in my forty, 4.2 in my shuttle, and the coaches down there had good things to say about my performance."

Chesson II told me that he is getting recruited so far by Missouri, Iowa,Michigan, Kansas State, Miami and Nebraska.

Jehu is attending Iowa's junior day today and will be attending Missouri's junior day on January 22nd.

"I will be heading up to Iowa I think with Trevor (McDonagh) and Brandon Sheperd (Parkway Central) is going as well."

I asked Jehu his thoughts on Missouri's interest and going to their junior day.

"I am excited about it.  I like the Tigers and I like their offense as a receiver. You know you'll get the chance to get the ball.I got the invite in the mail and it was exciting. I am looking forward to going up there. I am also excited about getting to see a basketball game up there."

Chesson told me that Missouri had been by his school recently and he hopes the interest leads to an offer in the future.
