Missouri Checks In On Kansas City OL Talent

The Missouri Tigers are looking for some more offensive line talent to add to their 2015 football recruiting class which is off to a fast start at the skill positions. ShowMeMizzou.com has the latest an such a talent we identified early, who is seeing things pick up.

April has been a busy month for Kearney (MO) OT Tanner Owen 6'6' 261. The athletic offensive line was one of the top players at his position at a recent Nike combine in Texas, he made a visit to Mizzou for their annual spring game, and he has had coaches from the Midwest showing up at his school the past week. He filled ShowMeMizzou.com in on the latest, including with the Tigers.

"The Missouri spring game was good," said Owen. "I got to talk to Andy Hill a little bit before the game and I think it went well.  They definitely want me to come to camp, and I am going to. I also spoke with Coach Henson and he mentioned how he liked how much bigger I had gotten since junior day and basketball season ended. Then Coach Hill and Coach Walker came to my school on Friday. That went really good. They didn't say anything about an offer but they told my coach that they would let me know what they on that in May. They also said they really liked how athletic and long I was, and that I am up to 261 pounds now."

The athletic tackle prospect is planning to camp with Mizzou in June.

The Tigers are not the only team that has been recognizing the  potential  of Owen. The Big 12 K-State Wildcats have also been  showing a lot interest.

"I went to Kansas State this past weekend. They talked about how big I have gotten, and that they liked what they saw of me in person and my film. I plan on camping with them on June 14th," said Owen.

With two offers already in place it is starting to look like a couple more may be coming Tanner Owen's way over the next couple of months.
