Missouri is definitely in the market for at least one but probably two running backs in the recruiting class of 2010.

One of the running backs that the Tigers have recently offered is Kansas standout tailback DeMarcus Robinson of Wichita Northwest High School.

Robinson confirmed with InsideMizzou.com this week that he indeed has an offer and interest in the Missouri football program.

"I'm going to take an unofficial visit to Columbia sometime this summer," Robinson said. "I have interest in everyone that has offered me so far. I plan on visiting each of those campuses and see which one matches me and my needs the best."

Robinson, a 5-foot-8, 190-pound athlete who runs a 4.3 forty yard dash, rushed for over 1,900 yards and 22 touchdowns.

"Right now I don't have an early favorite," Robinson said. "I'm neutral; I'm trying to find out more about each school."

Currently Robinson has official offers from Louisville, BYU, Kansas, Kansas State and Missouri.

Robinson is looking for a school that has the things he is looking for, what are those things?

"Just want to play football in a good program, a winning one," Robinson said. "Where I really get a long with the coaching staff and where I can get a quality education."
