Speedy DB Blake To Make Summer Visit

One of the top defensive back in Texas has a Missouri Tiger offer and talks to ShowMeMizzou.com about his recruitment and how the Tigers fit in his current plans

In football, you can never have too many good corner backs. The Missouri Tigers seem to agree, and are on the recruiting trail, trying to add corner backs to their 2012 recruiting class.

ShowMeMizzou.com spoke with a corner who recently received a Missouri offer, in 2012 CB Colin Blake 6'3" 180 4.4 San Antonio (TX) Brandeis, and he updated us on his recruitment.

Blake currently holds offers from Arizona, Baylor, California, Oklahoma, TCU, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech, in addition to Missouri.

Blake has already visited TCU and Texas A&M, and plans to visit Oklahoma, Missouri, and Notre Dame, as time permits.

"Right now, I really don't have a leader," said Blake.

Blake is relatively new to football, but already has developed very good coverage skills. He also has shown a nose for the football, and he says that he "likes to hit". Blake reports a 34" vertical jump, and a maximum in the bench press of 250 pounds.

One of Blake's high school football coaches is former Missouri Tiger Mack Breed.

Blake also runs track, and has played basketball and baseball. He reports a personal best of 10.78 seconds in the 100 meters.

Blake doesn't have a specific time table, but he did say that he'd like to make a decision prior to his senior season, if it's possible.
