Mizzou Offer Feels Like A Million To Cheadle

ShowMeMizzou.com reported on Lee's Summit(MO) West cornerback Logan Cheadle's junior day visit this past Saturday and the possiblity of him receiving an offer from the Tigers. After getting the news this morning, he shares his thoughts.

Lee;s Summit (MO) West cornerback Logan Cheadle 5'10" 172 4.41 forty, 37.6" vertical was a little disappointed following his junior day visit to Missouri on Saturday since he did not leave with a verbal offer from Mizzou after thinking that he might based on his talks with Andy Hill. His disappointment lasted only a couple of days.

"Mizzou offered!!" said Cheadle to ShowMeMizzou.com in regards to the Tigers extending a verbal offer to him this morning." I spoke with Coach Hill and he offered. I will talk to Coach Pinkel tonight or sometime tomorrow. I'm feeling like a million bucks! Actually, more like relieved to be honest," he said with a laugh.

Cheadle has a few more trips coming up he plans on taking.

"I have one more junior day visit to Iowa State and an unofficial visit to Northern Illinois coming up," he said.

Logan had told me that during his conversations with Coach Hill that they had talked about him getting up to 170lbs, and Logan felt that if he arrived at junior day at that weight that he would be leaving with an offer that day. He showed up at 172lbs, but took not leaving with an offer in stride saying," we'll see what happens".

What happened was a Mizzou offer fours days later then he expected, and him feeling excited and relieved that his hard work has paid off with an offer.

And as far as when he may make a college decision?

"I plan on making my decision sometime this summer," said Cheadle.
