Texas DE talks Missouri offer

Klein (TX) defensive end John Youboty has had, by all accounts, a pretty successful summer of recruiting. The 6-foot-4 Youboty has not only seen several new schools come into the picture, but has also picked up his first two offers.

Youboty said he has been trying to take things in stride, but in the next few weeks, he plans to add more thought to his recruiting with his final camp of the summer and hopes to make his first unofficial visit.

Although he has picked up a recent offer from Marshall, Youboty said the excitement of Missouri's offer over a month ago has not worn off yet. He added that the offer was not the first time he had looked at the Tigers.

His relationship with Coach Jones has helped bring attention to Missouri's defense in Youboty's eyes. The Tigers defense would be a change for him, but as Youboty joked, it would be a more than welcome one.

Youboty did say that he hasn't limited his recruiting to just Missouri, but as he kept looking at different schools, things kept coming back to the Tigers. He added that he did see two schools at least intriguing him in the last few weeks.

Youboty said he doesn't have an idea of when he may decide on his school, but said that it would be one something that he knew exactly when he knew.

With a decision not coming any time soon, and new schools in the picture, Youboty said everything right now has been coming back to Missouri. He added that as he gets closer to an unofficial visit, his excitement seems to grow.
