There won't be just one member of the Britt family playing football for the Tigers, Justin Britt who is committed is expected to sign his national letter of intent on Wednesday. His older brother Chris will get a head start on learning how things are to be a Tiger, he has enrolled in January and is a preferred walk on for Mizzou.

"It will be great to have my brother on the same team," Justin told InsideMizzou.com last week. "It will be great to have him on campus, someone to help me with my homework."

The decision to make his pledge to Missouri was easy for Justin.

"I have always wanted to be a Mizzou Tiger," Britt said. "I really like it there a lot. I really like the coaching staff and feel that this is the only place for me to play."

Britt attended Summer camp at Mizzou last June in hopes of earning an offer.

"I told my friends if they offer I will commit on the spot," Britt explained. "That's basically what happened."

Britt is listed at 6-foot-6, 270-pounds, and runs the forty in 4.9 seconds.

Britt was very impressed on his official visit of the all the new athletic facilities the Tiger's had to offer.

"The recreational center for the entire student body is incredible," Britt said. "Everything on the campus seems brand new. I really like the fact that the freshman dorm is so close to the football facilities."

Britt already has a lot of respect for the Tiger's head coach Gary Pinkel.

"Coach Pinkel is so much better than any other head coach I have met," Britt said. "He cares about you as a person, not just as a football player. My brother is already telling me how great it is to be around him. He has a way of making you feel special, he is also letting me play in the All-Star game this summer."

Britt and his brother both grew up cheering for the Tigers.

"We have so much Mizzou stuff in our rooms," Britt said. "We have always been big fans."

While Chris is the older brother, he is a little bit bigger than his younger sibling.

"Chris will definitely add some size to the line," Justin said laughing. "He is 6-foot-3, 300-pounds, I'm very excited about having him as a teammate."
