1. One more for the class of 2014
So this is fun: Mizzou just added another 2014 commitment. Eddie Heard, Jr., of Laney College (Cal.) committed to the Tigers over Oregon and Washington. His stats last year were not mind-blowing -- seven tackles for loss, four sacks -- so one probably shouldn't expect more than about four TFLs and two sacks from him this year, but Mizzou was a bit lacking from a depth perspective, and adding an upper-classman will take at least a little bit of pressure off of Charles Harris and Marcus Loud to succeed immediately.
Heard was apparently a qualifier out of high school but chose the JUCO route to raise his profile. If he was choosing between Mizzou, Oregon, and Washington, I'd say that gambit worked. Here's some film.

2. The Wright choice ... Wright for Anderson ... this just feels Wright...
By the way, four-star point guard Shelton Mitchell visited both Missouri and Vanderbilt in the last week, and a decision from him could come as soon as today, though he tweeted yesterday that he hadn't made up his mind yet.
