Missouri Standout Will Explore His Options

Around this time of year is when you have committed players from across the state and country start to analyze their decisions and explore their possible options with their recruitment. ShowMeMizzou.com has the story on this Blue Springs standouts plans going forward.

ShowMeMizzou.com reported on the talents of Blue Springs (MO) 2014 S prospect Kaleb Prewett back in the spring and followed his performance at the Missouri Tigers one day camp back in June which earned him an offer from the Tigers.

While Prewett wound up committing to the Kansas State Wildcats in July, he is keeping an open mind regarding his future and will be exploring a couple of other option he has on the table to make sure he has made the right choice for himself.

"I am still committed to K-State and nothing has changed, but I am going to be taking a couple of official visits to other schools including one to Mizzou," said Prewett to ShowMeMizzou.com. "I went to a game up there a couple of weeks ago with some family and friends. I talk with Coach Grinch a lot about things, and Coach Hill some too. I have a pretty good relationship with Coach Grinch and we talk about a lot of things."

I asked Kaleb what it is about Missouri that had him considering them as an option should he choose to go in another direction then K-State?

"Mizzou is a good football program. They have a history of success and tradition. They have a lot to offer if I go there. They are close to home, and obviously they are having a great season. Them playing in the SEC is something that also stands out. Coach Grinch has talked to me about playing free safety for them. I like the thought of early playing time if possible."

The other program that Prewett is planning on taking an official visit to is Oklahoma State. I got his thoughts on the Cowboys and his recruitment.

"Oklahoma State offered me about 3 weeks ago," said Prewett. "Coach Spencer is my recruiting coach with them and he is real cool. I like talking with him. They see me as a linebacker/safety hybrid for them and playing the nickel. I like their tradition and success along with Missouri. Both are options that I will be looking at.

One of the original lures for him committing to Kansas State back in July was that his Blue Springs teammate and good friend Dalvin Warmack had committed to the Wildcats earlier in the spring. I inquired about how that would affect his recruitment going forward.

"We are pretty set at playing at the same school. We are both still committed to Kansas State, but just looking at our options to make sure we are doing what is best for us. Dalvin picked up an offer from Oklahoma State last week and will be taking an official visit there too," he said.

Prewett, whose team is 11-0 so far this season and will be playing for a district championship on Friday against Lee's Summit, has recorded 44 tackles with 5 interceptions, 5 pass break ups, 1 fumble recovery and 1 forced fumble on defense, while also playing receiver and having 381 yards and 6 TDs while averaging 21.2 yard per catch.

First and foremost on Kaleb Prewett's mind is getting back to the dome and winning another state championship. However, the next few weeks he will be taking some more unofficial visits to the schools he is considering around his remaining high school games.

"My team and winning another championship comes first and is my main focus right now. Missouri has been talking to me about coming in for the Texas A&M game. I have seen Mizzou a lot so I might be taking an unofficial visit to Oklahoma State that weekend, and then I will be going back to at least one more game at Kansas State."

Kaleb Prewett's recruitment will be one to watch over the next couple of months.
