East Texas Defender Talks Tiger Offer

2012 Texas defensive standout fills ShowMeMizzou.com in about his Missouri offer and his plans for the summer including an unofficial visit in the works

Missouri assistant coach Barry Odom has been making the rounds in east Texas.  A 2012 DT prospect, Tomme Mark  6'2"  260  4.7  Lufkin (TX) has informed ShowMeMizzou.com that he has received a verbal offer from the Tigers. 

Mark reports offers from Arkansas, SMU, SFA, and Utah, among others, in addition to Missouri.  He told ShowMeMizzou.com that Missouri is among his favorites.

Mark plans to visit Missouri this summer, maybe "around the end of June".

Mark is a multi-sport athlete, who plays basketball, and throws for his school's track team.  He reports regularly lifting 270 pound in the bench press, and routinely squats 385 pounds.

Mark said that he would "like to play defensive end", but acknowledged that he may move inside, especially if he gains the additional weight that the Missouri staff projects him to add once he's enrolled in their strength and conditioning program.
