Oklahoma athlete has interest in Mizzou

One junior that got invited to Missouri Junior Day last month was Ada Oklahoma's Qumain Black. Black plays quarterback for his high school team, but is expected to be recruited as an athlete at the next level. Go inside to see what Black had to say about his interest in Mizzou.

Quarterback Qumain Black out of Ada, Oklahoma has been getting the job done with both his arm and his legs during his whole high school career. By the time he graduates next year, it seems very likely that Qumain will be playing at the next level.

The junior is only 5-foot-10 and 165 pounds, but for what he may lack in size he certainly does not lack in skill. "I did good last season," he said. "I rushed for 957 yards and threw for over 1,000."

While speaking with InsideMizzou.com, Black expressed that he has interest in just two programs right now: the Oklahoma State Cowboys and the Missouri Tigers.

Though he has not been to Columbia to visit the school, he really seemed to like what Mizzou has to offer. "I know that there is a great fan base up there," black said about the Tigers. "Everyone is really supportive of their team and that is important."

With one more year to impress the recruiters, Black is poised to have another great season. For the versitile Quarterback, speed may be the key to getting an offer from Missouri. Earlier this year Qumain was clocked at 4.46 in the forty.

While it's unlikely Black will play quarterback at the next level, his speed and athletic ability is expected to get him recruited either as a wide receiver or defensive back.

Black received an invite for Missouri's Junior Day but was unable to attend. He hopes to take an unofficial trip to Columbia in the near future.

It appears that Gary Pinkel and new offensive line coach Josh Henson is definitely targeting more Oklahoma athletes this spring and fall.
