St. Louis Cornerback On The Rise

The state of Missouri is loaded with Division One football talent in the class of 2014. One of the top defensive back prospects details his recruitment and continued rise among college football teams.

College football teams are always on the look out for quality cornerbacks in the age of spread offenses dominating the present day.

One of the top defensive backs in the state of Missouri's class of 2014 is St. Louis (MO) CBC CB Zach Muniz 6'0" 170 4.5 forty-35" vertical jump.

Muniz was one of the top performers at the 2013 Elite Football Combine and recently won a defensive skills MVP award at an Under Armor camp.

ShowMePreps com spoke with him recently to get an update on his recruitment,

"Things are going well. I have offers from Northern Illinois, Ball State, Toledo  and Miami,OH so far. Mizzou and Iowa have been talking to me lately and sending me mail almost every day. Iowa talked to me about coming up there. And I would love to go to Mizzou if possible," said Muniz. " Basically, I am hungry for offers from Big 12, Big 10 or SEC schools. I am interested in hearing from schools like Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Kansas, Kansas State, Illinois and other Big 10 schools."

Muniz talked about the schools he already has offers from a little more in depth.

Northern Illinois-"I took a visit to NIU and I really liked it. They have big facilities. I took a tour and I loved the dorm rooms and campus. I want to get back up there and spend more time with the coaches and players."

Ball State- "I took a visit there and they offered me. I liked it a lot and liked what they had to offer."

Miami,OH- "They first started recruiting me when they were recruiting my teammate Bert Birdsall, who signed with them. Bert took me with him on a visit over there and I liked it a lot there."

The reasons for Muniz's early offers and doing well at camps and combines are his good technique, hips and balls skills at corner. He has elite quickness running a 3.9 shuttle, has long arms and is good at man coverage and cover 2. He is also physical despite his slight weight and is also good against the run.

While he doesn't have a timeline yet on when he would make a decision, he knows exactly what he is looking for in a college.

"Besides the academics and football, I am most interested in having that good feeling that there is a great relationship between the coaches and the players. I know I will want to have a great relationship with the coaches and players I will be spending the next 4-5 years with. I am looking for a place that has team unity and a real family atmosphere," he said.
