Abeln Talks Missouri Offer

The Missouri Tigers hosted several unofficial visitors last night, including several football recruits who left campus with verbal offers from the Tiger coaching staff. We get the second standout lineman to receive and offer to share his experience.

ShowMeMizzou.com told about St. Louis (MO) University High OG Alec Abeln 6'4" 270 after his recent standout performance at the Elite Football Combine, and again earlier this week about his recruitment and scheduled unofficial visit to Missouri on Wednesday.

Alec Abeln

Abeln, a lifelong Missouri Tigers fan, whose Mother was Truman the Tiger when she attended Mizzou, reported to us last night about the good news that he had received an offer from the Tigers to play football at the University of Missouri while on his visit.

We got Abeln's thoughts on the visit and offer afterwards on the unofficial visit and offer.

"It feels amazing'" said Abeln about his recent good news. "The facilities,environment, and people were all first class. Getting the offer was also great!  It was surprising. I knew they were interested in me, but I didn't know that much. Mizzou is like a second home. I feel comfortable there."

Given the fact that Ablen is such a Missouri fan and has deep ties and feelings for the program as we reported in an earlier story about him, I asked about the possibility of it crossing his mind about committing to the Tigers sometime in the near future?

"It's a definite possibility that I commit soon," said Ablen.
