Visit solidifies Joseys plans

Among Missouri's ten visitors this weekend were six players who came in already committed. However, there was some doubt how solid the pledge of Angleton (TX) running back Henry Josey was. Josey had been quoted as saying he might take other visits last week.
"Everything was great. I had a great time down there," Josey told PowerMizzou.com. "It did (change things). I'm solid on Missouri now. I don't think I'll take another visit."
Josey was hosted by Tiger linebacker and fellow Houston area product Will Ebner. The two had faced off on the field when Josey was a freshman and Ebner was a junior linebacker at Friendswood. Now, they'll be butting heads again on the practice field beginning next fall.
"I'm playing running back. I talked to the running backs coach when I was up there," Josey said. "I think (the offense) really fits my strengths."
Josey ran for 1,354 yards and 16 touchdowns on 155 carries this season for Angleton. He also had three receptions for 86 yards, scoring on two of them. He will graduate in June and move to Columbia next summer.
