Pressley Thinking About Decision

One of the Missouri Tigers recent visitors being considered for the 2011 recruiting class gives us the very latest where his recruitment is at

Missouri hosted a trio of official visitors last week, players whom Coach Haith and staff may add to the team for this year. One of those is 2011 PF Jervon Pressley 6'8" 235 Charlotte (NC) Waddell. Pressley spoke with ShowMeMizzou.com about his Missouri visit, and his recruitment.

"(My Missouri visit) went perfect," said Pressley. "I enjoyed everything. They have great facilities, great staff. They have it set up to develop you, (including) 24-hour access to the gym. (They have) Great facilities there."

Pressley said that the facilities are important, then added, "But, it's not a determining factor."

Pressley reports having received a Missouri offer, in addition to offers from Robert Morris, Towson, Texas Southern, and Fairleigh Dickinson. He's planning to visit Texas Southern this week, then weigh his options, and try to make a decision.

Pressley indicated that Towson, Robert Morris, and Missouri are among his top choices. He's looking for a good fit, and said that the level of play is not as important to him as just finding a good fit.

Pressley's "an enforcer", and believes that he is already strong enough to play in college. He also said that he's already academically qualified.

"I'm unsure as of now," explained Pressley, talking about his upcoming decision. "I like all of those schools. I just have to sit down, and make a decision.......................... I feel that I can play at any level in the world............................. I just want to find the best fit for me."

Pressley said that he'll be ready to enroll "for the second session" of school this summer, since he'll still be in high school when the first summer session begins.
