JUCO Tanielu Has Strong Feelings About Mizzou

JUCO DT Handsome Tanielu talks about the latest with him and Missouri.

ShowMeMizzou.com spoke with Missouri offer and 2016 junior college DT prospect Handsome Tanielu 6’3” 310 Ephraim (UT) Snow College, who updated us on the current status of his recruitment.

The expected mid-year graduate told ShowMeMizzou.com that Missouri Assistant Coach Craig Kuligowski has been recruiting him hard.

“Coach Kool wants me bad,” explained Tanielu. “You know, I think (Missouri’s) a good program!”

Tanielu is getting close to making a decision, but as he explained to ShowMeMizzou.com, he’d still like to take a visit to Missouri.

“I’m taking an official visit to Missouri on the September fourth weekend,” explained Tanielu. “The hardest part for me is that I haven’t been to Missouri, and I just really don’t want to commit to somewhere that I haven’t been. That’s kind of where I stand at the moment.”

Tanielu expressed that he feels some pressure to go ahead and make a commitment. But, he also wants to visit Missouri. He just doesn’t want to commit to Missouri site unseen.

“Because I haven’t been to Missouri, I don’t want to commit to Missouri,” explained Tanielu. “I just respect Coach Kool and I like what he has to offer. But I just really don’t want to go somewhere that I haven’t seen. I want to go somewhere that I can actually live and like it there. I just want to make sure that it’s a good place for me. I definitely want to go on the Mizzou visit.”

“Honestly, it comes down to if I like the area,” concluded Tanielu.
