Klein (Texas) High School defensive end John Youboty officially makes five Division I prospects at the Houston school.
Youboty (6-4, 235 pounds) has been patiently waiting for his first offer while four of his teammates had collected their's during the spring and earlier.
"I'm excited that I got the paperwork on my first one and I'm happy it was from Missouri," Youboty said. "I really like the coaches, the Big 12 and I'm going to get up their in late July. I've done a lot of research on the school, but I want to get on campus."
Youboty has busy this summer hitting one-day camps at Houston and Oklahoma State, while also participating in the NIKE Camp at Stanford University
"Houston, Ole Miss and Kansas are also recruiting me pretty hard," he said. "Some of them are recruiting me as a rush end and some like me at tight end. I'm going to find the best fit and hope to commit in September."
The Youboty name is well-known in football circles. His brother, Ashton Youboty, was a defensive back drafted by Buffalo in the 2006 NFL Draft after his career at Ohio State.
