Mizzou Junior Day: Eric Beisel

Of all the visitors among the talented football prospects who attended Missouri's junior day on Saturday, it sounds like St. Louis Linebacker Eric Beisel did not have to wait long for some good news from the Tigers when he arrived.

Last June, ShowMeMizzou.com reported on 2013 LB prospect Eric Beisel  6'3"  235  4.6  St. Louis (MO) Rockwood Summit, who impressed Missouri coaches at their team camp.  On Saturday, Beisel was greeted by Coach Pinkel upon his arrival at Missouri's Junior Day.

"Right when I got there,"   said Beisel,   "they told me I needed to go see Coach Pinkel, and he offered me right there."

Beisel said that the Missouri staff projects him as an "inside linebacker".

"I was really excited!  And, I really appreciate it that they look at me as an elite prospect,"   said Beisel.   "That was my first offer." 

I asked Beisel if he has a timeline for making a decision?

"I'm not really sure yet,"  replied Beisel.   "I have no idea.   I'll have to talk to my family and see what they say.  We'll probably wait at least a while."

Beisel is expecting to receive other offers.  He's planning to attend junior days at Arkansas and Nebraska, and is hearing from other schools, as well.

He said that he'll revisit Missouri during the spring.
