According to the good folks at PowerMizzou, Mizzou picked up Commit No. 3 of the 2013 class, another local kid who they offered on Junior Day: K.C. Hogan Prep athlete Anthony Sherrils. (Yes, that's where Marcus Denmon went to school; yes, Denmon and Sherrils are cousins.) Supposedly he has been given the option of playing either receiver or safety and hasn't decided which yet.

Initial scouting report (based on nothing more than some highlights above): he is a long-strider, someone who looks like he's just gliding in place, only nobody catches him. I thought the same thing watching Jeremy Maclin's high school film, and I thought the same thing watching the film of a bunch of players who weren't fast enough to get away from anybody at the collegiate level. Like I said about Russell Hansbrough in the Walkthrough series, it all depends on if he actually has that extra step versus real competition or not, and we can't tell from film. My initial guess is that he ends up at safety, but ... it's obviously a hair early to guess with any accuracy. There aren't a ton of defensive highlights above, and he hasn't been taught proper form yet (though one has to appreciate how hard he hits, especially when he is taught proper form), but that's my guess. Huzzah, three commits!

All I can say is, I hope the coaching staffs of Mizzou's early-2012 opponents focus as much time as possible on DGB. T.J. Moe, Marcus Lucas, etc., could benefit tremendously from it. But yes, the above article talks about how Georgia might defend DGB Mizzou's passing game in the absence of suspended cornerback Sanders Commings. Mizzou's receiver depth could be really special this year, and obviously I won't be shedding any tears about Georgia's secondary not being full-strength.
