Mizzou impresses Long

After reeling in an offer from Missouri earlier this month, Cincinnati (Ohio) Winton Woods three-star linebacker David Long immediately reciprocated by making a visit to their campus.
"Mizzou was very nice. The coaches were real cool," Long said. "It stacked up good (to previous visits). The things the professor told me about my major - Sports Management - he informed me on a lot. He was just letting know what classes we would be taking and how many hours in a week we would have to have."
The offer from Missouri gave Long 14 total in his recruitment, and the visit has him considering the school strongly heading into summer.
"I don't have any (favorites) until after I take all my visits and go to all of the camps, but it's up there," Long said of Missouri.
Despite a healthy offer list already, Long is looking to add to those totals through summer camps before he starts to narrow his focus on which schools he is most interest in.
"I go to Michigan State on Sunday and back up to West Virginia next Sunday," Long said. "I go to Penn State sometime in June and Oklahoma in July."
West Virginia is a school that offered Long during the winter, but has raised their profile in his recruitment during the spring.
"West Virginia, they have grown on me because of the coaches and the love they have shown," Long said. "I have always gotten letters from them, but I've gotten to know them (this spring)."
The 5-foot-11, 209-pound Long is the nation's No. 24 ranked inside linebacker. At this stage he expects his recruitment to go into his senior season before making a final decision.
"I'll take official visits unless I see something that really catches my eye, then I might make it before," Long said. "But I am pretty sure I will take my officials."
