Boozer Bringing 'Em On Board
"I talked one of the guys into coming," said Boozer. Markus Golden to be exact- a junior college linebacker originally from the St. Louis (MO) area. "Friday, we were hanging out at one of the players' houses. Everyone there was either already on the team or already committed," explained Boozer. "I talked to (Golden) for like 30 minutes, about Mizzou, everything." "The next morning, I talked to him, and he said he went to coach's office and committed." (Or rather, solidified his commitment, as Golden entered the weekend a soft verbal.) Boozer is now working on getting close friend Will Hines to solidify. Hines will be exploring another option next weekend on an official visit to Arkansas. Even so, Boozer confidently noted, "He had a good time this weekend. He'll stay with Missouri." In addition, the Everman (TX) product also played a small part in the commitment of 3-star offensive tackle Simon Goines. "I hung out with Will and Chaston most (of the weekend), but I was talking with Simon a lot, too." "We (Missouri) got a good thing going." For Boozer himself, it was host Donovan Bonner (a redshirt sophomore linebacker) that reassured him his decision was the right one. "Donovan's from Texas, too. He said when he went on his official to Missouri, everyone treated him like family. It was like a home away from home," said Boozer. "That's exactly how I felt." Boozer said, even bigger, was the fact that his mother fell in love with the University. "That means a lot." And while he and his mother got to tour the school and the facilities, watch the team practice, and meet the coaching staff and majority of the team, Boozer noted they were they only pair that didn't get to sit down one-on-one with Head Coach Gary Pinkel. "So Coach Pinkel and Coach Odom are coming down for an in-home this week."
