It is a day of bliss and buzz for some football fans, and it is a day of "Thank goodness it's over for a while" relief for others. Either way, National Signing Day is upon us. Here is the latest on Missouri's progress on National Signing Day 2014.
A longtime Cincinnati commitment, Williams visited Mizzou this past weekend (right after a trip to Nebraska) and, as of this morning, flipped to the Tigers. He gives Mizzou three defensive end signees.
Despite late interest from his home-state Florida Gators, Rocel McWilliams stuck with a commitment he made back in April 2013 and signed with Missouri. He helps the Tigers further establish roots in the incredibly fertile Pensacola area.
A lanky, interesting tight end, Blanton committed to Mizzou nearly a year ago and finally got a chance to sign his Letter of Intent. His early commitment perhaps dinged his recruiting ranking a bit, but his athletic upside is impressive.
A massive guard prospect from one of Missouri's more consistently successful football programs, Pendleton was part of the May 2013 surge of Mizzou commits. He joins an intriguing crop of line prospects in the 2014 class.
A Louisville commit until Charlie Strong left for Texas, Blair visited Missouri late in the recruiting process and decided to join Nate Brown and the others in a loaded crop of 2014 freshman receivers.
