Missouri football fans need to remember the name Matt Marlor.

Marlor will be a junior this fall at Potosi High School, he attended his first college camp on Tuesday at the University of Tennessee and held his own with over 35 quarterbacks that were in Knoxville.

Marlor grew up a Mizzou fan and will attend the Tiger's camp in St. Louis on Sunday.

"I have always loved the University of Missouri," Marlor told InsideMizzou.com Friday. "I'm really looking forward to Mizzou's camp Sunday. I really want the coaches to know who I am after this camp."

Marlor learned a lot in his first college camp Tuesday at UT.

"It was a great camp," Marlor said. "I learned a lot of different things. There was a lot of great quarterbacks there, wasn't any scrubs there that's for sure."

Marlor has grown up going to Mizzou football games and would love an opportunity to play for the Tigers.

"It would be awesome," Marlor said. "I have always loved Mizzou a lot. It would be a dream come true to get an offer from them."

Marlor, a 6-foot-2, 230-pound athlete, threw for over 1,200 yards as a sophomore last fall.

"With having Brandon Bourbon in the backfield and him rushing for nearly 3,.000 yards we didn't have to throw the ball a lot," Marlor explained. "Brandon definitely took the pressure off our passing game."

Marlor will attend the Peyton Manning Quarterback camp for the second straight year and will also attend camps at Vanderbilt and a QB Camp in Eureka Springs.

What did Marlor think of the Tennessee Campus?

"I have never seen anything like their stadium," Marlor said. "I can't imagine over 100, 000 fans at every ballgame."
