Mark reports having received offers from Arkansas, Baylor, Houston, Michigan State, SMU, SFA, and Utah, among others, in addition to Missouri. He recently told ShowMeMizzou.com that Missouri is among his top eight, including Houston, Utah, Missouri, North Texas, SMU, and SFA.
Recently, Mark told ShowMeMizzou.com that Missouri is still recruiting him, and communicating with him, but that he hasn't spoken directly with the Missouri staff in over two months. Of note is that it was during the latter half of July, that Missouri received verbal commitments from three defensive tackle prospects.
Mark's Lufkin team is off to a 2-0 start this season, and he's optimistic heading into a Friday night contest against neighboring Nacogdoches.
Mark said that Houston and Utah are the schools that are recruiting him the hardest right now. He's planning to take visits later this fall, but as of now, doesn't have a complete list of schools that he will visit. He said that Houston and Utah are each likely to receive an official visit.
