Pretty sure we've posted them before, but Tre Williams' highlights are pretty fun. We're posting them again because he apparently blew Pete Scantlebury away on the first day of Mizzou's team camp.
Really, really good talent at #Mizzou's first team recruiting camp, which started today. Most legit FBS recruits I can remember at one.— Pete Scantlebury (@PeteScantlebury) June 5, 2015
And I know it's trite to make the comparison, but Rock Bridge DE Tre Williams really has the same frame as Aldon Smith. Looked great today.— Pete Scantlebury (@PeteScantlebury) June 5, 2015
NEXT ALDON SMITH. BOOK IT. Everybody blame Pete if it doesn't work out that way.
Another name to track: James Jennette III. He gets a mention in Pete's piece, and he's got offers from Kansas State, Maryland, and some solid mid-majors (Ball State, Toledo) so far. He's one of those "could get an offer if he looks good at camp" guys, and ... well, he's at camp. We'll see. He hasn't posted any 2014 compilation highlights, but his 2013 sophomore highlights are still pretty good.

PowerMizzou: [3-star Houston athlete Trey] Baldwin to visit Mizzou
Hang in there, Bud. Kind of a strange story. "I don't have a heart condition." "Yes, you do." "No, I don't."
Sasser stopped just short himself of confirming the heart condition, saying, "it's not 100 percent true," and adding, "we're going to figure it out."
Those later comments by Sasser no doubt are related to encouraging medical reports he received from a cardiologist in Dallas as well as specialists from the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.
"The Mayo Clinic doctor did say Bud was such a low risk, he should be able to play," said Scott Thiel, Sasser's agent. "The doctors at the Mayo Clinic said they had several patients that came in with that exact case that are currently playing in the NFL."
Thiel said the Dallas cardiologist also provided a letter in which he states Sasser should be able to play.
Best No. 10
10 Kentrell Brothers, LB, Missouri
He gets lost a little bit playing at Missouri, where D-Line Zou dominates the conversation. But the 6-foot-1, 235-pound linebacker was a force last year with 122 tackles on the season, including a team-high three forced fumbles.
It's preview season
They Almost Beat Kansas Last Year: And did so by almost coming back on Kansas' home field in the Jayhawks' season opener. Kansas got out to a 21-0 lead in the first quarter and built it up to 34-7 with a field goal at the end of the third. But the Redhawks weren't done yet. Snyder connected with Spencer Davis for a 37-yard touchdown on a 3rd-and-12 to make the score 34-14 with 12:53 to go. After a missed Kansas field goal, Snyder bombed one to McRoberts for a 68-yard score on the next play, making it 34-21 with 10:39 to go. After a Kansas punt, the Redhawks drove 89 yards on 14 plays, converting a 4th-and-1 and then scoring on a 26-yard touchdown pass from Snyder to McRoberts on a 4th-and-7 with 1:33 to go. Kansas recovered the onside kick and held on for the 34-28 win. SEMO is 0-7 all-time against Power 5 opponents -- though it did beat Missouri's "B" team in 1942 -- but it gave Kansas a scare last year and lost by a respectable 31-13 margin to Ole Miss in 2013.
