Texas TE Talks About Missouri Trip

The Missouri Tigers hosted several unofficial visitors on Monday including a fast rising tight end prospect from the state of Texas. ShowMeMizzou.com gets his thoughts on his time there and a possible offer.

The Missouri Tigers had several unofficial visitors on campus today. One of them we reported on making the trip to Columbia last week was Waco (TX) TE Jordan Smith 6'5" 225lbs, who attended Arkansas' one day camp over the weekend before heading to Mizzou on Monday.

ShowMeMizzou.com spoke to Jordan on his ride home from his unofficial to Missouri to get his thoughts about the past few days.

"My unofficial visit to Missouri went great!" said Smith as he and his father made the drive back to Texas. " I took an unofficial tour of the campus and got to see a lot of things. I met with the coaches and they were great. They were everything I had heard about and more. I really liked them. And the campus was beautiful. Just the scenery and there was just a great college atmosphere everywhere I went. I loved it!"

The main question about the trip was whether the Tigers may offer him soon and how he may fit into their future plans?

"Like I said, the coaches were great and I think it's a definite possibility that they may offer me after talking to them. They said I fit the criteria of what they look for in a player. They were upfront and told me that they are looking at a couple of other guys at the position and they want to make sure the guy they offer is the guy they really want. I can understand that and I will be in touch with them sometime this week or in a couple of weeks and should know something then,"he said.

Jordan also spoke a little bit about some of the other unofficial visitors he saw while he was there.

" I talked with Will Hines a bit. He is a really good guy and he said how he was committed and that he loved it so far. I also saw Simon Goines and talked to him a couple of times that I ran into him. We just talked about how much we liked everything. He said he really liked everything he was seeing."

I asked Smith if he could see himself playing at Missouri after his unofficial visit?

"Most definitely! After today I really could. I loved it there. Hopefully I will hear something good soon about an offer."he said.

Jordan spoke a little bit about the Arkansas camp saying it was similar to the previous one he attended but without pads on. He also said they told him they would evaluate film from the camp and "be in touch" in a few days about a possible offer.
