Atlanta Westlake Head Football Coach Brian Love confirmed to ShowMeMizzou.com that Missouri has offered 2015 DT prospect DaQuan Hawkins 6’4” 279 Atlanta (GA) Westlake. And, Coach Love talked about Hawkins continued recruitment by Missouri.
“Coach Kool came by on Tuesday,” explained Coach Love, speaking of Missouri Defensive Line Coach Craig Kuligowski. “He wants Daquan to come up to Missouri for an official visit this weekend (January 23).”
Hawkins holds an impressive offer list that includes offers from Auburn, Cincinnati, Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Louisville, Middle Tennessee State, and North Carolina State, among others, in addition to Missouri.
Hawkins is very strong, and he has an explosive first step. He’s very athletic, and he has good flexibility. He plays with very good pad level, and he even torques his body to get penetration into the backfield. He shows the ability to make plays even when he's double-teamed. He delivers a good initial punch, and he does a good job with his hands in separating from blockers. And he appears to have a non-stop motor, as well.
Coach Love said that Hawkins is “very interested” in Missouri.
