ShowMeMizzou.com spoke with 2014 DE prospect Walter Brady 6’4” 242 Florence (AL), who said that Missouri has offered him a scholarship, and who also confirmed that he’s going to visit Missouri this weekend (1-31-14).
“Coach (Craig Kuligowski) came down and he was talking to me,” said Brady. “In the middle of it, he said that he wanted me to come to Missouri for a visit, and that he was offering me, of course. And I stopped him right there, and I said, “So, you’re offering me?” And he was like, “Yeah. I’m Coach Kul, and I’m offering you a scholarship to Missouri.” And, I kind of got stuck in a daze at the moment. But it’s an honor! It’s truly a good blessing to have the University of Missouri offer me a scholarship to play, and to be a Tiger!”
Brady turned down an opportunity to visit Louisville this weekend. Instead, he’s visiting Missouri.
“I had to weigh my options between taking an official to Louisville and taking an official to Missouri,” explained Brady. “But with Mizzou being my dream school, and the school I’ve always wanted to go to, I’m taking my official to Missouri.”
Brady mostly grew up in Memphis before his family moved to Alabama. He reported a personal best in the 40-yard dash of 4.7 seconds, along with a maximum in the bench press of 315 pounds, and a squat max of 405 pounds.
Brady is committed to Middle Tennessee, and he reports having received offers from Alabama A&M, Kentucky, Louisville, San Diego State, South Alabama, Southern Miss, UAB, and Vanderbilt, among others, in addition to Missouri.
Brady said that he’s “very high” on Missouri, and that a commitment to Missouri is “likely” this weekend.
“I’m heavily leaning toward Missouri,” said Brady. “It’s dream you’d have as a little kid, even playing in the SEC, let alone playing for Missouri. I mean, it’s a dream come true!”
