Mizzou Links, 12-18-13: Raymond Wingo is a Tiger, Dante Sawyer isn't, and Michael Sam speaks

Bill Carter

Two Missouri targets committed on Tuesday (one to Mizzou), Michael Sam spoke to the media for the first time in a while, and Braggin' Rights is but three days away.

1. Win some, lose some

It was a busy day for Mizzou football recruiting yesterday. The Tigers landed a potentially elite cornerback (with a familiar last name), missed out on an elite defensive end, and confirmed the signing of another cornerback (also with a familiar last name). At the end of the day, St. Louis' Raymond Wingo committed, Georgia end Dante Sawyer chose South Carolina, and Logan Cheadle confirmed that he'll be here next semester.
