Four-star Texas defender Marvin Terry committed to Missouri on Saturday night

Consider this your Sunday live thread.

Barry Odom is still attempting to fill his coaching staff, but this weekend represented his last in-person recruiting opportunity in a while. The Tigers hosted a handful of current commits and one big uncommitted defender: DE/OLB Marvin Terry of Dallas' South Oak Cliff high school.

Terry is a four-star recruit per the 247 Composite and a high three-star via Rivals. He lists offers from Arkansas, California, Colorado, Louisville, Miami, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Oregon, TCU, Texas Tech, UCLA, and Wisconsin, and he is now a Mizzou commit.

Per PowerMizzou:

"Terry is a speed guy off the edge. He's played some linebacker, but he's been most effective as a defensive end," [Rivals mid-south recruiting analyst Jason] Howell said. "Whether he is coming out of a two point stance or four point or a three point…whatever he's coming out of he does a great job of getting that outside edge, cutting the edge and getting pressure in the backfield."

Here's his Hudl film:

The competition is overmatched, but Terry clearly has a nice first step and finishes tackles well. At 6'2, 222, he could fill out a bit and become a defensive end or fill out a little and become a Donavin Newsom-style OLB. Regardless, Odom has scored a versatile weapon.

Mizzou also scored a reaffirmed commitment from linebacker commit Trey Baldwin, who might have my favorite film in the current commit list.
