One of my favorite running backs in the 2022 class, Ollie Gordon is a 6'2" 205 workhorse. This young man carried the ball 49 times for 455 yards and 6 touchdowns for Trinity in a playoff game back in December. As a junior he rushed 209 times for 2083 yards and 28 touchdowns. Ollie is explosive and shows the ability to make cut backs and turn any carry into a big play.
I got to ask Ollie a few questions and when asked about the Missouri staff and if he had built a relationship with them I got a emphatic "yes sir, I have built a relationship with them"
When asked about his being comfortable with the way Mizzou uses backs in the passing game he answered "yes sir, I am ". I asked him who he patterns his game after he replied "Derrick Henry". If you watch his film you actually see that similarity. His recruiting has heated up lately and he has several offers but when asked if anybody else stood out "no sir, just taking my options". A little personal stuff favorite meal pork chops and rice, favorite movie Sandlot or The Express. Bottom line Ollie is good kid and seems to be that bigger running back we need. Let's hope we can get him committed and in Columbia soon,
