Missouri Team Camp: Session One Report

The Missouri Tigers first team camp of 2014 featured more than 300 campers, including varsity and JV teams from across the state and region. ShowMeMizzou.com has a rundown of the top prospects who attended, including an out-of-state lineman who may earn an offer based on his performance.

Missouri’s First team camp featured more than 300 campers, including varsity teams from Affton, Quincy (IL) Notre Dame, and Smithville. Jefferson City brought a junior varsity squad. And, there were several Renegade teams made up of individuals. In fact, the Renegade teams outnumbered the high school teams.

While many of the top prospects at this team camp were underclassmen, there were several 2015 prospects in attendance, including a number of offensive line prospects from near and far.

Massey

2015 OT prospect Conner Massey 6’5” 295 Ozark (MO) camped for the duration, and he showed well throughout. He won the tournament-type Board Drill Competition on Friday morning. Massey is a D-1 prospect who merits consideration from Missouri. He’s due to camp at Tulsa and Arkansas State, where I expect he will quickly earn offers.

Love

2015 OT prospect Devondre Love 6’7” 298 Affton (MO) camped with his team, and he showed marked improvement from a year ago. He’s more mature, more physically fit, and more assertive. He has an NFL-type body, but he has a long way to go on the football field to begin to approach his considerable potential. If he continues to progress, it wouldn’t be out of the question to see Love with an opportunity to develop as a football player at a high-level D-1 school like Missouri.

Trout

One of the underclassmen who camped for the duration and who really stood out was 2018 line prospect Trevor Trout 6’2” 260 St. Louis (MO) Chaminade. Trout will be a freshman at Chaminade this fall, and he more than held his own against the seniors at camp. He played both ways at camp, but as of now, he is most effective at defensive end, where he shows tremendous pursuit along the line of scrimmage. He also did very well in the 1-on-1s.

Several offensive line prospects came into camp for a day, or part of a day. Included among those one-day campers was undersized 2016 OG prospect Dylan Powell 6’3” 250 Hannibal (MO), who showed up on Friday and demonstrated good mobility. He’ll play some college football.

2015 OG prospect Dalton Ford 6’5” 294 Webb City (MO) came into camp on Friday and he looked pretty good. He’s a D-1 prospect, and one to keep an eye on. It appears that he’s on Missouri’s radar.

2015 OL prospect Jack Shutack 6’5” 275 La Grange Park (IL) Nazareth Academy came in on Friday. Missouri’s been recruiting Shutack, and he wanted to show them why they should offer him.

French

A very athletic 2015 OG prospect, Wesley French 6’5” 300 St Joseph (MI), came in on Thursday, and he showed well, with good flexibility, and good quickness and explosion. He’ll be a guy that I think might end up with a Missouri offer.

Another one-day camper was 2015 OG prospect Marquis Prophete 6’4” 258 Florissant (MO) McCluer North who came in and showed off his considerable athleticism. He didn’t measure as big as expected, but with his athleticism, he definitely has Missouri’s attention.

Among other positions players, there were more underclassmen who had the look of a prospect than there were seniors. One senior who did appear to have caught the eye of the coaches was 2015 WR/DB prospect Quentin Mueller 5’11 175 Smithville (MO). Mueller reported a personal best 4.6-second forty.

2015 WR/DB prospect Wes Lindor 6’3” 210 Affton (MO) has the look of a D-1 athlete. Not sure where he plays on the football field in college. He reported having run a 4.5-second forty earlier this year, and offers from Syracuse, Arkansas State and SEMO.
