Leander, Texas defensive end Ryan Douglass is now the third player on his high school team to receive a Division I offer.
Recently, Douglass called Missouri coach Brian Jones where he was informed that an offer from the Tigers would be arriving in the mail within the next few days. It appears that it will be a Big 12 battle for the sleeper defensive end as he is also hearing from schools such as Oklahoma State and Baylor.
"Missouri had been talking with me for a while," Douglass said. "I had a feeling they'd offer, but I just didn't know when. Oklahoma State, I think they're going to offer me. Other than text messages, I haven't spoken with Baylor coaches yet, so I don't know where that stands."

The 6-foot-2, 210-pounder says that his two leading schools are OSU and Missouri.
"I went to the Oklahoma State camp when they were down here in Texas and I liked the coaches there," Douglass said. "I watched them on the Big 12 spring football stuff that was on television and I also went to one of their games last year.
"Missouri gave me an offer and they seem like a good program as well."
Douglass says that right now he doesn't have any other big visit plans, but says he plans to make a decision somewhat early.
"I'd like to decide and commit right before the season starts," he said. "I don't plan on waiting around too long."
Douglass was an honorable mention all-CenTex player as a junior and was also a first-team all-district member that same year.
