Even after their move to the SEC, the Missouri Tigers continue their work recruiting the Lone Star state of Texas for prospects for their upcoming 2014 recruiting class. ShowMeMizzou.com spoke with a recent offer considering a junior day visit.

The Missouri Tigers have extended a scholarship offer to a talented 2014 DL prospect, in Josh Malin 6’6” 260 Steele (TX) Cibolo.

Recently, Malin spoke to ShowMeMizzou.com, and he talked about his interest in Missouri, and the current status of his recruitment.

“Coach Kuligowski offered me over the phone,” said Malin. “He’s been here before.”

Malin currently holds offers from Baylor, Northwestern, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, and UTSA, in addition to Missouri. Malin said that LSU is another school that is showing interest.

Malin is considering tripping to Missouri for the Tigers’ Junior Day on March 2nd.

“I’m trying to fit it into my schedule,” explained Malin, talking about attending Missouri’s Junior Day. “I’m hoping I will be able to get there. Missouri’s a good school, and you know, it’s in the SEC. Missouri’s a good school.”

Malin is a multi-sport athlete, who is a thrower for his school’s track team. He reports a forty time in the 4.8-4.9 range.

Malin said that some coaching staffs think that he will grow into a defensive tackle. He’s currently wide-open in his recruitment.

“I’m just trying to find the best fit for me education-wise,” said Malin, establishing academics as a priority among his criteria for choosing a school.
