"It was amazing!," said Copelin. "I loved everything about it and it let me know that I definitely made the right choice in picking Missouri over Houston. The people were so supportive and you could tell that they really care about you as a person. They were really interested in my coming to Mizzou. The coaches, the players, just the beauty of the campus, the facilities. It was all great. A motto I heard about Missouri is what you see is what you get, and that was certainly true. "

Copelin, who was hosted by red-shirt freshman QB Corbin Berkstresser, made some new friends on the visit.

"Besides Corbin, I got to know Mitch (Morse) and some other players, who were really cool. I also hung out with some other recruits on the trip, Mike Onouha, Damien Lawry and met Jake Meador. We all kind of bonded on the trip. I think we will be picking up some more commitments soon," said Copelin.

" It was funny, because Coach Ford and Coach Hill were battling over which one would get to coach me either on offense or defense. They don't know which I would prefer, but honestly, I just want to play and help the team wherever they think I can contribute the most. This is a great opportunity for me and I will make the most of it."
