Raymore (Mo.) Raymore-Peculiar tight end Chase Coffman made his fourth, and final official visit over the weekend. After returning home, the 6-foot-6, 210-pounder narrowed his choices to two schools. He will now turn his attention to making a decision between the two, if all goes well, before the New Year.
"Chase visited Missouri this weekend," Raymore-Peculiar coach Tom Kruse said. "I think things went really well for him there. He enjoyed it and was fairly excited about the whole process when I talked to him.
"He is down to two schools. He is going to pick between Kansas State and Missouri. He'll make a choice, probably sometime over the holiday break and then notify the schools of his decision. Right now, I don't know that he's leaning one way or the other. Both schools are very good institutions that he has to choose between. It will be tough for him to go wrong."
Coffman is being recruited as a tight end by both schools, with a little twist to the position for the 2004 Simone Award winner which signifies the top player in the Kansas City metro area.
"Chase is being recruited to play the tight end position by both schools. It is going to be kind of like an H-Back type of position where he will move around and be in motion to let them use his athletic abilities."
Kruse believes whichever school gets Coffman to play for them will be receiving one of the better players in the area in a while.
"He is going to be a tremendous college player," the coach said. "He is going to fit in well wherever he goes. Kids like Chase only coming along once in a career. He is a special player."
