Recruiting: Missouri OL talks about OU trip

Missouri offensive lineman Brett Gallimore talks about his favorites and his interest in Oklahoma


Gallimore has great size and is a prototype of what many college programs are looking for in the offensive line. He will be a three-year starter at offensive tackle after earning first team All-State honors. Last year he recorded 91 pancake blocks, which proves that he is a dominating performer.

"I would rather play both ways so I can get some tackles in," said Gallimore. "However, I am a pure offensive lineman and have played offensive line all of my life. We didn't pass block much, but I did pretty good at base blocking and run blocking."

Gallimore can bench 300 pounds, squats 480 and he has a 24-inch vertical jump. He plans to attend a couple of summer camps this fall and recently attended the Sooners junior day and came away impressed with the Sooners.

"I liked it a lot," said Gallimore. "The facilities are really nice and the coaches were great to meet. I think the facilities are the best in the country and I really like the dorm rooms. Oklahoma is definitely one of the teams that I will consider signing with."

Gallimore likes Oklahoma, Michigan, Iowa, Florida State and Missouri and says those schools are his top five right now. Gallimore admits he doesn't have a favorite.
