On Monday, the Missouri Tigers hosted a number of 2013 commits, as well as a few uncommitted prospects.  One commit who was on campus for an unofficial visit is 2013 OT prospect Jake Campos  6'7"  255  4.9  West Des Moines (IA) Valley, who took time to speak with ShowMeMizzou.com afterward, as he talked about the visit, and his future at Missouri.

Campos and his family arrived in Columbia on Sunday evening, allowing Jake to spend some quality time watching film with Missouri Assistant Coach Josh Henson.  He said that he came away from that session much enlightened about Missouri's multi-faceted offense, and just where and how he'll fit into the Tigers offense.

"I was there on Sunday, and I went in and I watched watch some film with Coach Henson,"    said Campos.  "Just some O-line stuff, which turned into kind of a chalk talk about the (Missouri) offense.  It was really good!  I really enjoyed it, because it was kind of a different look at it, because I knew (Missouri) runs a spread offense.  But, we kind of went through, and it's a lot more than that, it looks like, because they have a really good rushing offense, as well.  I mean, I really liked it!"

"Most of what we went over was zone blocking schemes in the run game,"  explained Campos, who went on to talk about his impression of the Missouri offensive line coaches.  "I really like Coach Henson.  Coach Walker too. And I really like the feel going on between the two of them…………………………… It's really well-balanced."

Campos said that his "whole family" came with him on this visit.  They toured the facilities on Monday morning, and then they met up with several other 2013 Missouri recruits.

"That was the first time that I'd met any of them,"  said Campos, talking about the other 2013 recruits.  "I got along with all of them, so it's going to be really good."

Campos said that his parents "seemed like they really liked (Missouri)".  He talked about the impact of this visit on his decision.

"It's pretty solidified right now,"  said Campos, speaking of his commitment to Missouri.  "Especially after this visit.  That really helped.  The two things that I hadn't done was taking time to talk about what the offense is……………………………………….. And, getting to meet the other recruits."

Campos is planning to return to Missouri for the Alabama game.  We'll have more on this talented lineman later.
