The Missouri Tigers football coaches have been hitting the recruiting trail hard as ShowMeMizzou.com has reported on all week long. It appears as though a new name has emerged among their official visitors coming in on Friday based on the coaches work. Come inside for the details.

Earlier this week, ShowMeMizzou.com spoke with 2014 DE prospect Kennedy Emesibe 6’4” 235 Oak Hills (CA) about his recruitment.

Emesibe said that Missouri is recruiting him. And, he's taking an official visit to Missouri this weekend.

“I’m talking to Coach Grinch and Coach Kuligowski,” said Emesibe. “They want me to come out this weekend for an official visit………………………………… I’ll be there on Friday.”

Emesibe holds offers from Arizona, Arizona State, California, Colorado State, Mississippi State, San Diego State, UNLV, Washington State, and Yale.
