Focus '06: Crain Hearing From Big 12 Schools
There is no questioning the strength of Bolivar offensive lineman Scott Crain, who previously has recorded a 395 pound bench, 550 pound squat, and 310 pound power clean. In fact, it is highly unlikely you will find many offensive lineman around the country much stronger than Crain. Yet, despite receiving strong interest from the likes of Missouri, Kansas, Kansas State, Nebraska, Iowa State, and Michigan State, Crain is still without an offer. "I know Coach (Brandon) Blaney from Kansas, Coach (Mo) Lattimore from Kansas State, and Coach (Andy) Hill from Missouri all stopped by the high school this spring," added Roweton. "All of them said that Scott clearly has the strength to be a division one offensive lineman, but they'd like to see him lose some weight and gain some more mobility." "None of them are afraid of the challenges of putting size and strength onto his frame, but they want to make sure he is able to move well enough to play in the Big 12. All of them have asked that he extensively works on his footwork, and lateral speed before coming to their camps this summer." According to Roweton, it appears the Missouri Tigers are hoping Crain shows enough to warrant an offer this summer. "Missouri has basically said they just want to get him in camp to work him out in person as that is what they require from all lineman prospects before offering. I know they like him very much, and I believe there is a good chance they will offer him at camp this summer," stated Roweton. Crain previously has made unofficial visits to both Kansas and Missouri, and actually walked away with a better impression of the Jayhawks program. "I really enjoyed my visit to Kansas, and I'd have to say they are the top team on my list right now," added Crain, who also sports a 3.79 GPA and 23 on the ACT. "I really clicked with Coach Blaney, and they have their program heading in the right direction." "At Missouri, I really only got the opporunity to speak with Coach (David) Yost, but he was extremely helpful. He informed me of what to expect throughout the recruiting process, and what I could expect from Missouri. Other than that, though, I really wasn't able to get much else from Missouri," said Crain. As a junior, Crain tallied 47 tackles and 12 sacks from the defensive tackle position, but he projects as an offensive lineman in college.
