The Missouri Tigers continue their search for quality skill players for their 2012 recruiting by looking down in East Texas and extending an offer to one of the top athletes in that area.
ShowMeMizzou.com has learned that the Tigers have extended a verbal offer to Tenaha (TX) WR prospect Reginald Davis 6'1' 185lbs 4.4 forty last week.
We caught up with Davis to ask him about the recent Tiger offer and his recruitment.
"Yes, sir. Missouri has offered me for football," said Davis. "I think it was last Wednesday that my coach told me about the Missouri offer and I called them. Coach Barry Odom recruits my school."
Davis, who has 8 offers overall including the Missouri offer, was excited about adding the Tigers to his list, but admitted that he still needs to do more homework on them in the future.
"I thought the Missouri offer was a great thing,"he said. "I know that they invited me to their junior day, but I was already committed to attending the Texas A&M junior day when I got my Missouri invite. Otherwise I would have went up there and checked it out. I don't know as much about them as I would like to, but I plan on learning more about them as the process goes on. I hope to make it up there at some point."
Besides attending the A&M junior day, Reginald also attended junior days at TCU and Texas Tech. He plans on making an unofficial visit to Tech in the near future, but has changed some of his plans as far as when he might make a decision because of recent offers.
"I thought I would like to make a commitment sometime in June, but with these new offers from Missouri, Notre Dame and Oklahoma, I think I will need to take longer and research all these schools and take visits to them."
Davis does know what he is looking for in the school that will get his services.
"I want to go to a school that throws the ball a lot. I also want to go to a school that I can get on the field as soon as possible, maybe a year after I get there. And I also am looking for a school that has great graduation rates and helps their players get their diploma's because that is what it ultimately is all about. I also want a place where I like the coaches and players and feel at home."
Reginald plays QB at Tenaha but says that all the school recruiting him have said that he will play at wide receiver.
"Wide receiver is where I want to play in college, so I am happy with that."
