The SEC legacy becomes the 16th known commitment in Missouri's 2013 recruiting class.

Per PowerMizzou and the Tampa Bay Times, we see that Darren Hambrick, a linebacker from Hernando High School in Brooksville, FL, committed to Mizzou yesterday. He is a two-star recruit via Rivals.com, and while he had no major offers ... that hasn't stopped Mizzou from offering and signing kids before. He could become the next Tyler Crane, and he could be the next Sean Weatherspoon. And he's either a 6'2, 220-pound future linebacker (via his Rivals profile) or 6'2, 235 future defensive end (via the Tampa Times). We'll see.

From the Tampa Times:

“I should have done it a long time ago,” Hambrick said of pledging to the Tigers, his only offer from a BCS program. “I like the team. I like the program.”

The two-star recruit committed during Mizzou’s 21-16 win at UCF, which Hambrick watched on a visit with teammates K.D. Hagood and Tyrail Hawkins.

Hambrick, a 6-foot-2, 235-pound pass rusher, was an all-North Suncoast player as a junior. He ranked second on the team with 81 tackles and 5.5 sacks while helping the Leopards win their first district title since 1997. [...]

“They’ve got me in the palm of their hands right now,” Hambrick said.

He’ll play in the same conference where his dad competed. His father, also named Darren Hambrick, led Pasco to its only state title in 1992 and played collegiately at Florida and South Carolina before going to the NFL.

Hambrick is the 16th known commitment for Missouri's 2013 recruiting class.
