Townsend very interested in Missouri

Massive Jason Townson seems to fit the bill for Missouri. He's big, he has good feet, and he plays a position of need at Hazelwood East. What's the latest with big Jason's recruitment?

Jason Townson is a player many fans of Missouri have inquired about regarding his recruitment. The 6`5" 290 DT from Hazelwood East will be one of the top players in the St. Louis area and the state this year.

I spoke with Jason on Friday and asked him about his recruitment so far. "I am VERY interested in Mizzou", Said Townson. "I visit up there with Chris Brooks (fellow Hazelwood East player and Mizzou commit) when he goes up there and I like it a lot".

Townson did not say whether Brooks being a Tiger when influence his final decision, but he did say it helped having a good friend there. He also said that besides the Tigers that K-State, Michigan and Michigan St. are schools recruiting him that he is interested in.

He also addressed the subject of him having qualifying issues and said that while it may be close that he was going to do whatever work it takes to qualify.

Hazelwood East has a new defensive coordinator this year in former Tiger Michael Jones.
