ShowMeMizzou.com was at this past weekend's DeSmet vs Hazelwood Central game to scout the talent on hand, including 2014 OT/OG Andy Bauer 6'5" 310, who put on a dominant performance opening holes for the Spartans running game, and helping lead them to victory at home against the Hawks.
Bauer, who is up to 31 offers already two games into his junior season, is bigger,quicker and even sounder in his technique from a year ago. He is way ahead of the game with his footwork, kick step, hands and other technique compared to most high school offensive linemen. The last lineman who looked this close to college ready at this stage was Mizzou freshman starter Evan Boehm.
I spoke with Bauer following the game to get thoughts on his game, recruitment and to clear up his commitment situation with the Missouri Tigers, as well as shot some up close action in this exclusive video.
