Missouri Offer A Big Deal For Bilal

The Missouri Tigers are looking for some talented linebacker help for their 2015 football recruiting class. ShowMeMizzou.com has an update on one of their top targets at the position from the state of Indiana.

Recently, ShowMeMizzou.com spoke with 2015 LB prospect Asmar Bilal 6’3” 205 Indianapolis (IN) Davis, who confirmed receipt of a Missouri offer, and who talked about his Missouri offer, as well as the current status of his recruitment.

“The Missouri offer is pretty big,” said Bilal. “It was one of my first few SEC offers. So, it was pretty important.”

“The Missouri offer is a big deal,” continued the very talented linebacker prospect. “I’m planning to visit Missouri sometime this summer, possibly June 8th, but I’m not really sure of the date.”

Bilal currently holds offers from Cincinnati, Duke, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisville, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, North Carolina State, Nebraska, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Oregon, Purdue, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech, Western Michigan, and Wisconsin, among others, in addition to Missouri.

Bilal said that he’s been talking to Missouri Defensive Coordinator and LB Coach Dave Steckel. He reported a personal best of 4.49 seconds in the 40-yard dash, to go along with a 33” vertical and a maximum of 350 pounds in the bench press.

Bilal said that Missouri is one of the schools that is standing out to him.

“Missouri is up there,” explained Bilal. “They’re one of the schools under consideration.”

Bilal went on to name some of the other schools that he is considering, including Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Oregon, Tennessee, and Texas A&M. He is yet to take visits.

“I’m planning to make most of my visits this summer,” said Bilal.

Bilal cited some of what he views to be important factors in choosing a school, including academics, player development, and “just the feeling” that he gets from being around the coaching staff and the program.

He still has a lot of investigative work to do before he’s ready to make a decision.

“I don’t really have a deadline for a decision,” explained Bilal.
