Spring Game Visit Planned

Iowa athlete hoping visits help him narrow list of schools down

A very talented 2011 prospect is planning a return trip to Missouri for a second unofficial visit.

TE Christian French  6'6"  216  4.37  Cedar Rapids (IA) John F. Kennedy is planning to try to attend Missouri's spring game on April 17.

Christian updated us on his recruitment.  He currently holds offers from Iowa, Iowa State, Missouri, Wisconsin, Notre Dame, and Kansas State.  He said that he's expecting an offer from Vanderbilt soon, and that some other schools are getting close to offering.

Christian told us that he hasn't begun to narrow things down at this time, but that he wants to check out the schools on his offer list, see what they have to offer, and get to know the coaches at each school.Christian spoke of his specific interest in Missouri.

"Right now, I don't have anybody in first, or second, or last, or anything," said French. "I mean, everybody's even.  I'm just trying to get as many opportunities to visit each place as possible.  I'm going to try to get down as much as possible, time permitting, to get a chance to know the coaches on a personal level, and to see how things run down there (at Missouri).  Of course, they're on my radar.............. Yes, of course, they're in my top six."

French is running track this spring, and has posted a 10.7 100 meters so far this spring.
