The recruitment of highly sought Charlotte Latin (N.C) quarterback Braden Hanson is winding down. After he took a second visit to Missouri this week, Hanson touched base with InsideMizzou.com for a few minutes and filled us in on the latest developments – which include narrowing his list to three schools.

"I'm pretty torn between Missouri, UNC and Wisconsin," said the 6-foot-6 lefty, a four-star prospect rated the No. 16 quarterback in the nation. ""There's not too many quarterbacks undecided besides me, so it's getting to be time to do something [fairly] soon … I haven't set an exact date yet, I'm just taking it day by day.

"I've seen everything I needed to see, now it's kind of getting to be that time," he said.

For the second time this summer, Hanson, a native of the Kansas City area, stopped by Columbia on the way to a vacation at the Lake of the Ozarks. But this time he brought his mother with him so she could check out the situation; previous he and his father Bryan visited together.

"There wasn't really anything new I wanted to find out about, but it was good to get back, and also for my mom to get to see it," said Hanson, who also had offers from Colorado, Rutgers, Kansas State and Duke along with heavy interest from a host of major programs.

The Hansons again met with head coach Gary Pinkel and strolled around for a bit with recruiting coordinator David Yost, whom Hanson said "was very helpful again."

Said Hanson: "Seeing everything for a second time reaffirmed everything I felt about Missouri."

Still, he said, he's unsure of which school is the best place for him, andthough growing a bit weary from the process, will not commit anywhere for the sake of getting it over with.
