2013 Football Visitor Has Tiger Family Ties

A recent out-of-state class of 2013 unofficial visitor with strong Missouri ties discusses his trip as well as some of the reasons for his interest in the Missouri Tiger football program

Missouri opened the month of July by hosting an unofficial visitor, in 2013 TE/DE Calvin Blank  6'5"  225  4.78  Terre Haute (IN) North.  Afterward, Blank took time  to visit with ShowMeMizzou.com, and he talked about his visit, and updated us on his recruitment.

"It went good,"  said Blank, of his Missouri visit.  "I got to see a lot of the campus, and spoke with academic advisers."
Blank is a two-sport athlete, who reports having football offers from Toledo and Indiana State, and is also receiving mid-major recruiting interest in basketball.  Blank reports a 32" vertical in testing this summer.

Blank has long been high on Missouri.

"I've seen most of Missouri,"  explained Blank.  "Most of my family are Missouri alumni.  It was just exciting!"

Blank reports that Missouri is going to follow him and watch his physical development.  The staff is considering Blank for the offensive or defensive line, or as a TE, depending on how he develops physically. 

"They're going to watch how I develop,"  said Blank.  "It's fine.  I just like playing football."

Blank said that he'll be back to visit Missouri again.
ShowMeMizzou.com will continue to follow Calvin Blank's recruitment.
