ShowMeMizzou.com spoke with a recent Missouri offer, 2016 OG/C prospect Julian Santos 6’4” 295 Tarpon Springs (FL) East Lake. He talked about his Missouri offer, and he updated us on the current status of his recruitment.
“Missouri offered me last week,” said Santos. “(The Missouri coach) came to (our school) and watched us practice……………………………….. I like that Missouri is in the SEC.”
Santos currently holds offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Cincinnati, Duke, Indiana, Kentucky, Marshall, Massachusetts, Miami, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Ole Miss, Penn State, South Florida, Tennessee, UCF, and West Virginia, in addition to Missouri.
Santos self-reported a 4.95-second personal best in the 40-yard dash, to go along with a 32” standing vertical, and a maximum in the bench press of 345 pounds.
Santos explained that his brother had lived in Kansas City and recently finished at Missouri Valley College in Marshall, MO. He said that his brother is a Missouri fan. He said that he would like to visit Missouri “soon”.
“I’m hoping to head up (to Missouri) on a visit with my brother this summer,” explained Santos. “And check out the campus, and meet all the coaches and everything.”
Santos said that he hasn’t taken many visits, so it’s still very early in his recruitment. He’ll have to narrow things down later. For now, he has Missouri among his top schools.
“I haven’t really narrowed things down, yet.” explained Santos. “But, (Missouri) is definitely in my top ten.”
He expects to make a decision later this year, probably during or after the season.
