Recently, ShowMeMizzou spoke with 2011 OL Dylan Laurens 6'4" 280 5.3 Duncan (OK) about his recruitment, and his interest in Missouri. Laurens attended Missouri's Spring Game last month, and is planning to camp with Missouri in June.
Laurens told ShowMeMizzou that he does not yet have any scholarship offers, but is being recruited by Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Kansas, Tulsa, and Louisiana-Monroe, in addition to Missouri. He said that although he plays tackle for his high school team, Missouri is recruiting him to play on the inside, possibly at center. He said that in addition to playing offensive tackle for his high school team, he also doubles as the back-up center.
Laurens reported a maximum bench press of around 350 lbs.
Laurens said that he is hopeful, and expectant, of receiving a Missouri offer following his showing at the Missouri camp next month. Missouri appears to be his favorite, and he intimated that he and Dismuke are friends, and have talked about attending the same school. A Missouri offer extended to Laurens could net commitments from two offensive linemen.
Like many prospects, Laurens would like to take his time before making a decision. He wants to wait and see which schools will ultimately offer him, and then go from there.
