The state of Missouri has several talented offensive line prospects who will be competing to earn an offer from the home state Tigers over the next week by camping with them.
ShowMeMizzou.com introduces you to another among those prospects who is planning to camp in Columbia this Sunday.
Lamar (MO) OT/OG Trenton Mooney 6'5" 250 4.9 forty-30" vertical jump, has been hearing from the Tigers, and is hoping he comes away with a Mizzou offer following a strong performance at their camp.
"I have been talking with Coach Henson for a while," said Mooney. " He said that they want me to come to camp so they can see me up close in person. He said that they like how athletic that I am, my aggressive play and how I sink my hips on plays, but they want to see my footwork at camp. He also said that they will be taking 5 linemen in this class, and that some will be at camp who are under consideration."
The multi-sport athlete , who also plays basketball and baseball, has had a fair share of interest from colleges already with seven offers already, and a few more possibly close to being on the way.
"Illinois State was the first school to offer me. They have recruited me pretty hard. I also have offers from Army, Air Force, SIU-C, Western Illinois, Coastal Carolina and Pittsburg State so far, with Iowa State, Rutgers, New Mexico State, Princeton and Brown talking to me and showing interest," said Mooney.
Iowa State knew about Mooney because a former student at Lamar is currently coaching there.
Mooney, whose father is 300lbs, and has the frame to be a lean 300 pounder himself, is taking the recruiting process in at the moment, and waiting to see what all comes his way.
"I am keeping my options open for now. I would obviously love an offer from Mizzou. Sam Bailey is going up there, and it's the home school, but I don't have a short list of schools yet even among my current offers. It's an honor to get offers from the military academies, and I will probably check out Air Force. I hear it's really nice out there. In the mean time, I will continue to listen to whatever schools wants to talk to me."
