Brothers visiting Missouri soon

Like so many before him, a trip west was an eye-opening experience for Guthrie (OK) linebacker Kentrell Brothers.

“Yeah, I’d say it was,” Brothers said of his recent west-coast swing.

Brothers picked up another offer on Monday when Ohio University offered the Bluejay.

The 6-foot, 210-pound athlete took his first two official visits to see Washington and Arizona State during early season action. Brothers has offers from Missouri, Kansas, Kansas State, Iowa State and plenty more, but he said his trip to see the Sun Devils and Huskies made him pause.

It’s not because Washington and Arizona State are his two favorites — although they are up there, he admits. But, it made him slow things down with his recruitment.

“Since the visits, I’ve just wanted to consider everyone,” Brothers said. “Every school, I want to see what they have to offer.”

While Brothers can only take three more visits, he plans to see as many schools as he can on unofficial visits. This weekend, he’s taking an unofficial to Tulsa. On Oct. 9, he’ll head to Columbia to see Missouri face Colorado in the Tigers Big 12-opener.

“If I’m within driving distance to a school, I might not take an official,” Brothers said. “The Tulsa visit is definitely unofficial, but the one to Missouri, I’m not sure yet. It could be either.”

Missouri was the first school to offer, and for that reason and his familiarity with the program, he said they’ll be a contender until the end.

When that end will come, however, is anyone’s guess.

“There’s no timetable,” Brothers said. “Whenever I feel it, feel comfortable with a school, I’ll commit.”

Every one of his 14 offers is recruiting Brothers as an outside linebacker, except for Washington. “They’re looking at me as a receiver,” Brothers explained.

For Guthrie, Brothers plays both sides of the ball. In 2010, he has six sacks as a defensive end, and has a handful of touchdowns as a receiver.

Still, Brothers is more concerned with his school of the future than his position.

“It won’t have an impact,” Brothers said. “Where ever the team wants me, I’ll play.”
