In an attempt to bolster its offensive line, Missouri is targeting 2016 JUCO offensive line prospect Breontae Matthews. 

A Rivals.com 3-star prospect from Fullerton Community College in California, Matthews has narrowed his final list down to Memphis, Kansas State, and Missouri. He will officially visit Mizzou this weekend, and announce his collegiate decision on Monday. 

At 6’8", 315 pounds, Matthews is a mountain of a man. He unsurprisingly possesses immense power and strength. Once he engages with defensive linemen and latches his big paws onto the defender, it’s incredibly hard to get around him. 

Missouri is in desperate need of both talent and depth up front. It lost Evan Boehm, Brad McNulty, Connor McGovern, Mitch Hall, and Taylor Chappell all to graduation. 

As such, the door is open for Matthews to come in and impact right away.
