The 3-star offensive guard from St. Louis, is rated as the No. 5 player in Missouri and the No. 18 player at his position nationally in the Class of 2017. He has received 15 scholarship offers, but appears to be leaning toward playing for his hometown school, Missouri.
The Badgers have already landed three commitments from offensive linemen. That includes a verbal from Kayden Lyles, who is rated as the No. 11 guard in the 2017 class. Minnesota’s top two commitments are from offensive tackles, while Illinois only has one commitment from an offensive lineman.
