Young Shares What Missouri Offer Means

One of the latest football prospects from the state of Florida to receive an offer from the Missouri Tigers program spoke with about his recruitment by the Tigers, and what it means going forward in his recruitment.

Missouri has been recruiting 2014 WR prospect Kenric Young 6’2” 185 Gainesville (FL) for a while, but it was just recently that Young received a Missouri offer. He spoke to, and he talked about what it means to have an offer from the Tigers.

“I’ve been talking to Coach Washington a lot,” said Young, who ran a 10.82-second 100 meters as a sophomore. “He said that Missouri wants me to come in and spread the defense out with my speed.”

“Missouri is my best offer, my biggest one,” explained Young, who has been timed at 4.1 seconds in the 5-10-5 shuttle. “I’m going to look more into Missouri, and I’m going to take an official visit to Missouri.”

Young holds offers from Appalachian State, Cincinnati, Connecticut, East Carolina, Florida Atlantic, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Iowa State, Marshall, Maryland, Massachusetts, Middle Tennessee, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Carolina State, Ohio, Purdue, South Alabama, South Florida, Troy, Tulane, UAB, UCF, Utah, Western Kentucky, Western Michigan, and Wisconsin, among others, in addition to Missouri.

Young named Indiana, Wisconsin, Western Michigan, Iowa State, and Missouri as schools that he’s considering.

He’s scheduled an official visit to Indiana for the Missouri game.

He’s not sure if he’ll take an in-season official visit to Missouri or wait until after the season to check out the Tigers.

“Missouri’s a great school, an up and coming school,” said Young. “They have a great coaching staff, a good receiving corps, and they’re looking to make a run in the SEC.”
