Great day, had a blast in my future home of CoMo #OneMizzou
Big recruiting day for your Tigers yesterday. Not only did they land a really interesting defensive back in Kentrell Brice (which would have, in and of itself, made it a pretty good day) ... and not only did they land a strong scorer/rebounder from a BCS conference school ... but they finished things up by landing Evan Boehm, who is ESPN.com's No. 1 guard in the class of 2012. In a regular year, Boehm might have been the No. 1 recruit in the state of Missouri, but in this loaded class he only comes in at No. 3. He is a really, really exciting prospect, and he gives Mizzou at least a slight level of revenge on Oklahoma for getting a commitment from Durron Neal.
Mizzou has now quietly locked down four of the top eight prospects in the state's loaded class, with only one (Neal) choosing to go elsewhere. Dorial Green-Beckham might be the biggest fish in this class, but Boehm's right up there, and he's now a Tiger.
