Salmon indicated that the offer from Missouri was special to him.
"The Missouri offer was big because it's my first SEC offer," explained Salmon. "And, growing up a Missouri fan, it's very, very big to get an offer from them."
Salmon reports personal bests of 4.85 in the forty-yard dash, a 26" vertical jump, a maximum of 325 pounds in the bench press, and a maximum in the squat of 550 pounds.
Salmon named a top five of Cincinnati, Miami, Missouri, Michigan State, and West Virginia. He said he plans to visit Missouri early during the season.
Salmon indicated that he has been impressed with the Missouri coaches, and with what he has been able to learn about the Tigers. He's looking forward to learning more about Missouri.
Salmon expects to make a final decision later this fall.
"After my last official visit, I'll sit down and look at everything and make a decision," said Salmon, who cited academics as an important factor in his decision.
