PowerMizzou: Missouri leaves Curtis Carter 'in awe'
"It was like one big family," Carter said. "When people say that, it's so true."
Carter said it starts with the players. He spent most of the weekend hanging out with his host, cornerback Kevin Rutland, and seniors Sean Weatherspoon and Danario Alexander. What immediately jumped out to the four-star receiver was the accessibility of Missouri's stars.
"The players were great," Carter said. "None of them seemed too stuck up, or didn't want to talk to the young guys in town. We could ask them questions, and they answered about everything."

The Trib (Dave Matter): Four and Out
A few thoughts on Tyler Gabbert: His high school statistics won’t blow you away. He doesn’t have the flashy measurables, at least compared to his brother, Blaine. And at this point, nobody knows if he’ll become a productive Big 12 quarterback or a career backup. But we do know this much: Kid’s got a pair. And they’re brass. On Friday, Gabbert called 1620 AM The Zone, a sports radio station in Omaha and asked for a chance to explain his decision to drop his commitment to Nebraska. I can’t say I’ve EVER heard of a high school recruit doing that. During the interview, which you can hear in its entirety at this link, Gabbert insisted he initiated the de-commitment, contrary to what Nebraska fans and some Nebraska reporters believe. The hosts asked the questions that needed to be asked from their angle, and to Gabbert’s credit, he handled the questions impressively for a high school senior.
We’ve learned a lot about Blaine Gabbert’s toughness and personality this season, and even though it’s going to be a while before we know what kind of college quarterback Tyler will become, some of those intangibles are part of his makeup, too. At least according to someone who knows him well. "Tyler is the most competitive athlete I’ve ever seen," their dad, Chuck Gabbert, told me last week. "That’s something that makes him a better athlete. But it’s like anything else when you’re following in your brother’s footsteps in high school and you’re linked to him, fair or unfair. He’s kind of proven himself repeatedly based on that. … Competition is just part of the deal. So, as far as being a competitor, I’ve never seen a kid that’s a bigger competitor than him. It’ll be fun."
