Dewitt is one to watch

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- There were plenty of expected visitors at Mizzou's one-day camp in Springfield on Wednesday, but one unexpected, under-the-radar recruit who made the trip to southwest Missouri was Lawton (OK) offensive guard Brandon Dewitt.

Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Tulsa, in addition to Missouri, have expressed interest in Dewitt since last summer. However, at the time Dewitt was an undersized linemen at 230 pounds. Over the past year, Dewitt said he gained between 30 and 40 pounds, and measured in at 6'2", 265-pounds in Springfield.

"Everything has changed since then," Dewitt said.

Dewitt said he prides himself on his agility, and it showed during linemen position drills on Wednesday. He was clearly the quickest lineman in attendance, and showed good flexibility as he ranged from side to side and front to back. It appears that he's handling the added weight well.

Now firmly on Missouri's radar as an offensive guard or center, Dewitt said he'll talk to Missouri coach Josh Henson following the camp to determine more of the Tigers interest.

"He said I did good today, but I still have to talk to him," Dewitt said.

Should Missouri not offer, however, he has plenty of other options.

"I'm getting a lot of interest from Ivy League schools," Dewitt said. "Even if I get offers from other schools, I might still go to an Ivy League school for the education."

Dewitt currently boasts a 3.9 GPA, and hopes to bring it up a 4.0 before he graduates.
