OL Abeln loves the spread at Mizzou 

December, 9, 2012
Official visits seem to have everything. The coaches. The players. The atmosphere. The hype of the college lifestyle.

For offensive lineman and Missouri commit Alec Abeln (St. Louis/University), the weekend visit to Columbia, Mo., had one major highlight -- the spread.

“The food was unbelievable,” said Abeln, a 6-foot-3, 280-pound interior lineman. “The first night, we went to the basketball arena, and they had all kinds of food. I know I had the 30-ounce prime rib, lobster tail and a loaded baked potato. I also had Tiger Stripe ice cream. The school’s got its own ice cream flavor.”
