Aikens Shares Thoughts On Unofficial Visit

The Missouri Tigers received an unofficial visit from Florida WR prospect Austin Aikens on Wednesday and ShowMeMizzou.com has his thoughts on the trip and what's next with his recruitment.

On Wednesday, Missouri hosted an unofficial visitor, who along with his parents, are taking a tour of prospective schools throughout the Ohio and Mississippi valleys. After 2012 WR prospect Austin Aikens 6'1" 180 4.52 Tampa (FL) Plant completed his Missouri visit, he and his family were en route to Iowa for an unofficial visit scheduled for Thursday. ShowMeMizzou.com spoke with Aikens, and he talked about his Missouri visit.

"(The visit) went well," said Aikens. "They showed me their facilities, and everything, and they showed me the Business School. They talked to me about my major. It went pretty well."

It sounds like Aikens got the complete tour. He shared some of his thoughts about the Tigers.

"I really like Missouri," said Aikens, who previously told ShowMeMizzou.com that his school runs the same offense as Missouri. "I like the coaches, too."

At week's end, Aikens and his family will return to Tampa, where they will spend some time sorting through his options. His timetable for a decision is sometime later on in the season.

ShowMeMizzou.com will follow up with Aikens after he and his family return to Florida, and have had some time to discuss his options.
