Nate Brown picks Mizzou over Vandy, Indiana and Louisville.

Jeff Blake-US PRESSWIRE

First commitment of the night:

Nate Brown, a 3 star WR from Suwanee, GA committed to Mizzou last night. He chose the Tigers over a dozen plus other FBS offers including Vandy, Indiana and Louisville. Brown measures up at 6'3" and 215lbs. Gary Pinkel and Co. continue to make inroads in the traditional SEC footprint and increase their 2014 haul.

Rivals.com has Brown ranked as a 5.7 three star, so he could be bumped up to a four star at some point. It is also notable that he plays at North Gwinnett which is a power house program in Georgia and could pay huge dividends down the road.

From Powermizzou:

""I was kind of split because of the off-the-field stuff at both schools," Brown said. "Vanderbilt is obviously well-known for academics. I didn't know too much about Missouri's academics when I first started, but I did research and saw that their business program was incredible. Their journalism program is great, too, but I see myself majoring in business."

Let's hope he doesn't go the same way as other Mizzou athletes who have cut their flat tops:

Second commitment of the night:

From Powermizzou:

"I like how it's on the rise and I could play against good opponents in the SEC. I just want to get there and see what I can do." Wilson plays both ways for Buford, a perennial Georgia powerhouse program which has outscored opponents 147-7 through three games this season. However, Missouri recruited the 5-foot-10, 176-pound athlete as a safety.

From Scout.com:

The 5-foot-11, 180 pound senior out of Buford, Ga. does not know if he will play cornerback or safety when he gets to Columbia, but he is fine with either. "I think I can play both well. I have played both in high school and I am good with either position. They run a 4-3 defense and I feel I can help at either position in that scheme."
