Mizzou commit Rhodes talks OU offer

10/4/2012

Three-star offensive tackle Clay Rhodes (Stilwell, Kan./Blue Valley) is solid on his commitment to Missouri, but offers like the one he picked up on Wednesday have made him think about the recruiting process all over again.

Rhodes picked up an offer from Oklahoma and now has 16 FBS offers. Rhodes, a 6-foot-6, 270-pound lineman, received the news from his area recruiter, offensive line/tight ends coach Bruce Kittle.

“It’s an incredible program,” Rhodes said of Oklahoma, “and walking through their trophy room really proves that. They are always a winning team, and they have a great coaching staff. The atmosphere is also awesome.”

Rhodes committed to Missouri in May, but he said Oklahoma might be one of the schools that will receive an official visit in the near future. He’s yet to take an official, but he’s planning on scheduling visits soon.

“I will genuinely look at them,” Rhodes said of Oklahoma, “but I’m still solid Mizzou.”

Rhodes is ranked the No. 2 player in the state of Kansas. He is the No. 76 offensive tackle in the country.
