Gary Pinkel and the Missouri coaching staff will host over 70 junior prospects this Saturday in Columbia, giving some of the top junior prospects in the state and area a first hand look at what Mizzou has to offer.
One in-state prospect that will be in attendance for this weekend's festivities is Raymore-Peculiar High School offensive lineman Andrew Mueller.
Mueller confirmed with InsideMizzou.com Monday night that he plans on attending the Tiger's Annual Jr. Day.
"I have a lot of interest in Missouri," Mueller said. "I will be in Columbia this weekend for their Jr. Day. I'm looking forward to getting to meet all the coaching staff and check out the campus."
Mueller, a 6-foot-4, 260-pound athlete, plays left tackle for his high school. Most colleges may look for the talented athlete to play the guard position at the next level. He earned All-Conference and All-State honors while leading his team to a 11-2 record his junior season. He was also named to the Missouri All-State Academic team.
Saturday's trip won't be Mueller's first trip to Columbia.
"As a kid growing up I have been going to Mizzou games all my life," Mueller said. "I have been interested in being a Tiger since I was a kid, that hasn't changed."
Mueller's father graduated from Mizzou, surrounding the stand out lineman with Black and Gold most of his life.
"I have been on the campus a lot," Mueller said. "I love it there.I'm looking forward to this weekend so I can get more information on the program and their academic programs."
Mueller has no official offers currently and also has interest in Kansas State as well as Missouri.
"I'm going to keep my options open," Mueller said. "I'm mostly interested in just Missouri, I'm also going to explore things at Kansas State."
