Missouri OL gets big offer

Webb City, Mo., offensive tackle Parker Graham can now be officially removed from the sleeper category.
The 6-foot-7, 255-pounder was already heavily recruited by Missouri State, Wyoming, Arkansas State and Northern Illinois, but it's an offer from a Big 12 school that has his family excited.
"Oklahoma State offered Parker a scholarship on Friday," Karen Graham, Parker's mother, said. "He's on an official visit to Oklahoma State this weekend."
Graham was a key reason why Webb City won a state championship this season.
"I don't like to talk about myself too much, but I'm the type of blocker that likes to roll over people and maul them," Graham, who has a 295-pound bench press and a 5.1-second time in the 40-yard dash, said. "Coming from Webb City, we don't pass block a lot. I would say run blocking is definitely my best.
"I like to pull. We have a couple counter plays where I get around the edge and make things happen. I'm also really good at getting up to the second level."
