West Des Moines (Iowa) Valley offensive tackle Jake Campos has been committed to Missouri for the last six months, but this past weekend the four-star prospect took his first official visit of the process to one of the Tiger's former Big 12 foes.
"I took an official to Iowa State for the West Virginia game," Campos reported. "That went really good and it was fun. I got to see the new facilities. I had seen them a couple times through the building process, so it was pretty exciting to see them done. I got to hang out with a lot of the players, which was really fun."
Iowa State is the local team for Campos, located just 45 minutes north of his home. He attended the Cyclone's camp in the summer and was impressed with the improvements to the school and program he saw on his most recent visit.

"Their program really is headed in a good direction and they just got their new facilities opened up, which are really nice," Campos said. "I think they've got a bunch of good people coming in and moving up through their ranks who will start playing."
After returning home from Iowa State, Campos hosted Missouri assistant coach Andy Hill in-home on Monday and Iowa State assistant Shane Burnham on Tuesday. Part of Campos' discussion with Hill revolved around his trip to Iowa State.
"I told him about the official and he just said to give it some time, come down, take your official [to Missouri] and see what happens," Campos said.
Campos has an official visit scheduled to Missouri for the weekend of Dec. 7. He does not expect to visit any other schools and still maintains his commitment to Missouri, but plans to consider continuing his career with either Missouri or Iowa State over the next several weeks.
"It's coming up soon," Campos said. "We have been talking about it as a family."
Campos finished his high school career earlier this month after leading West Des Moines Valley to a 9-3 record and a state quarterfinals appearance.
