“This whole process has definitely been a stressful blessing! From the stress everyday of not getting an offer to getting offers and now being stressed with choices to make. It’s a roller coaster but I wouldn’t change any of it.

It’s definitely stressful when the coaches from different schools are messaging trying to get you to their junior day and spring games. Cam’s a pretty genuine kid so he didn’t like letting coaches down.  We are very close and we had lots of late night talks. Missouri was always his #1 choice but we wanted to visit the other schools too. We talked and decided that it would take lots of stress off of his season by committing early and since we had no doubts about where to commit.

Advice that I could give other families would be to follow your heart. If I learned anything visiting the different schools and coaches, it’s that you know where you belong when you feel that “click”. And Cameron always felt so comfortable when we visited Mizzou. It made me feel secure as his Mom that they reassured me over and over that I did an awesome job raising him and they would continue making him into a #mizzoumade man!”
