ShowMePreps.com identified St. Louis (MO) Rintenour high school DT/OL prospect Edmond Ray as one of the top prospects in the state of Missouri last fall. Now colleges are showing how they feel about the athletic lineman's talents by extending verbal offers, with Kansas following on the heels of Kansas State's offer earlier in the week.
Edmond sent me a text message on Sunday telling me of the recent developments in his recruitment.
"Got an offer from KU!", proclaimed Ray in a text message to me.
Ray said that the overall junior day experience was "pretty cool", with the basketball game being his favorite part.
Edmond has recently been invited to junior days at Nebraska and Penn State.
Look for Ed Ray to continue to add offers as the spring and summer come, and for ShowMePreps.com to follow his recruitment closely.
