Offer goes out to 2011 MO star

Recruiting for the Class of 2010 seems like it's only just begun, but Missouri is already looking ahead to its Class of 2011. Today, the first offer went out to Brandon Hannah, an athlete from Chaminade High School in St. Louis, Mo.

"I've had word that it'd already happened a while ago," Hannah told PowerMizzou.com. "My coach has been talking to them for a while, but I guess it officially happened today."

Missouri is recruiting Hannah as a wide receiver, continuing its recent trend of going for big, physical pass catchers. At 6-foot-3, 215-lbs, Hannah has the size to catch passes in traffic, and with a 4.5-second 40, he's got the explosiveness to blow by defensive backs.

"The strongest part of my game is after I catch the ball," Hannah said. "Making people miss, picking up more yards."

Hannah's sophomore season ended before it began, as he suffered a knee injury early on. He tore some cartilage and his meniscus, but said he's 100% now.

"I missed four or five games at the start of the basketball season," Hannah, who helped lead Chaminade to a state title, said. "But I was back to full speed pretty quickly."

Now, Hannah's recruiting is sure to pick up steam after such an early offer. He's hearing from other Big 12 schools, but Missouri is still his only offer. He said that's sure to make a difference.

"Oh yeah, I'm a big Tigers fan," Hannah said. "I love Missouri.

"Missouri is number one on my list, too. There's a very strong possibility I'll commit to Missouri, but I'm going to wait till the end of my junior year, because it's still so early."
