Terry talks about his recent visit to Mizzou

Does Keeston Terry have an early favorite? How did his unofficial visit to Mizzou go this past Friday. InsideMizzou.com has those answers and many more in today's interviews with one of the state's top wide receivers. It appears the Tigers have picked up some ground in Terry's recruitments. Go inside to his thoughts of Columbia and the University of Missouri.

After attending junior days at the University of Missouri and Kansas University, Blue Springs High School receiver Keeston Terry was back on campus in Columbia, Mo. last week.

While junior day provided Terry with an opportunity to see Mizzou from a football standpoint, his most recent visit gave him a more well-rounded perspective on the university.

"I visited Missouri last Friday," Terry said. "It was an unofficial, but it went really well. I got a chance to meet with an academic advisor. I want to go into education and they showed me the specific program I would go through if I went to Missouri. I also got to check out the rec center which was really cool."

After taking in the academic side and the recreational center, Terry got a chance to meet with the Missouri coaches once again.

"I sat down with the coaches and they went through what they do offensively and how they could utilize me," Terry said.

So does that mean Terry, who is also a standout at safety for the Blue Springs Wildcats, is slated for the offensive side of the ball if he comes to Missouri?

"The coaches told me I could play wherever I want when I come in. But to tell you the truth, I don't really care where I play. Coach Hill wants me at receiver, but if I could get on the field fastest at safety, then that's fine with me."

After meeting with the offensive coaches, Terry had the opportunity to sit down with Head Coach Gary Pinkel.

"He seems like a really good guy. You can tell he really cares about his players."

As for his recruitment, Terry addressed the rumors that Kansas, the alma mater of his parents and high school coach, was the early favorite.

"I really don't have an early leader. To be honest, I really enjoyed my trip to Kansas, but I really like the coaches at Missouri too. Right now, I am interested in all of the schools that have offered me."
