Bourbon scores in-state offer

Potosi, Mo., running back Brandon Bourbon remains one of the fastest rising prospects in the Midlands Region. The 6-foot-2, 205-pounder already had scholarship offers from BYU, Stanford, Kansas and Harvard, Bourbon added a significant in-state offer on Wednesday.
"Brandon got an offer from Missouri today," Roger Bourbon told "We think even more offers will be coming."
Bourbon said he was pumped about the offer.
"I'm very excited," he said. "I've always been a Mizzou fan. I have been able to talk to the coaching staff the past few days, and they're very friendly. I'm glad they're excited about me as well."
Missouri offensive coordinator David Yost was at Potosi on Tuesday. He left without offering, but the offer then came on Wednesday. Yost definitely made a big impression there when he was visiting with Potosi coach Mark Casey.
"They were telling coach that they really liked me," Bourbon told Tuesday night. "But they just aren't sure what position they like me at. They said that each coach has watched my tape about seven times, and right now they're just trying to figure out where I would be best at."
Bourbon feels he can be a good fit in a number of different systems.
"I'm more of a hybrid-type back," Bourbon said. "You see my tape, and sure, there are just a bunch of long runs. But I can do a lot of other things, I can be shifty and make cuts and read the blocks. I'm more than just a power, downhill back."
