Moragne impresses Mizzou
Heading into the 2013 football season the tailback position looks like one of the strongest groups on the Mizzou roster and with none of the five scholarship players graduating it will be that way for the next couple of years.
Despite that fact, the Tigers could be in the market for multiple tailbacks in the 2014 class and it is mainly due to two factors. There are three junior tailbacks going into this season and Mizzou did not sign any tailbacks in the class of 2013.
2014 Little Rock (Ark.) Central tailback Logan Moragne could become an option for Mizzou after an impressive showing at Mizzou's second one day camp.
"I feel like I performed at a high level today at camp," he said. "Went through all my drills with no tweaks, no injuries, or anything like that. I feel real good about my performance after today."
With over 300 kids in attendance there are not a ton of reps to go around, but Moragne felt like he took advantage of the time he had.
"I like to get around and get the coaches attention. I also like to learn and help myself and improve my skills for the upcoming season," he explained. "I talked to the running back coach, Coach [Brian] Jones, and he told me I did good work and to keep at it. They want me to come to a game next year."
Moragne does not currently hold any offers, but with several camps coming up he hopes that changes.
"I'm going to Memphis on Sunday, Tulsa on Tuesday, and I went to Arkansas St. last week," said the elusive 5-foot-9, 185 pound tailback. "I'm getting a lot of interest from Arkansas St., Memphis, Auburn, Missouri, and Kansas St. right now."
For some prospects receiving their first offer is can lead to an immediate commitment, but for Moragne that will not be the case.
"I want to take my time and look at the college before I commit. I want to see what I'm getting into," he said.
When it does come time to make a decision he already knows what he is looking for.
"First is academics, then playing time, and also the tradition and what goes on around the school," said Moragne.
