One of the biggest names at Missouri's one-day camp at William Jewell on Sunday was Shawnee Mission linebacker Blake Lawrence. The 6-foot-2, 199-pound Lawrence is sitting on seven offers and was named to the Rivals250 as a four-star prospect this week.

Lawrence already holds an offer from the Tigers among his seven total. But six schools are talking to him as a linebacker, while Mizzou has mentioned the possibility of giving him a shot at quarterback. Lawrence threw for the Tiger coaches during the camp on Sunday afternoon.
