2016 Missouri football recruiting: Georgia linebacker Tobias Little chooses Tigers

New, 4 comments

Georgia linebacker Tobias Little became Missouri's 12th commitment of the 2016 class on Wednesday evening.

Little is a 6'0, 235-pounder from Mays high school in Atlanta. Per Rivals, he listed offers from Clemson, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Iowa, Louisville, Mississippi State, North Carolina, N.C. State, South Carolina, Syracuse, and Virginia Tech. Rivals gave him the highest three-star designation and listed him as the No. 23 inside linebacker in the class. The 247Sports Composite lists him as a mid-three-star and No. 27.

Here's his Hudl film from last year:

Like a lot of ILB prospects, he played a position down, at defensive end, for Mays last year. He checks all the boxes -- he stands up run blockers well, he skates past offensive tackles in the pass rush, and he's a pretty mean tackler. You never know for sure about speed from these clips, but 247 lists his 40 speed at 4.60. Even if that's 4.70 in real life, that's good enough.

We assumed Mizzou would be going after more linebackers after landing Texas prospect Trey Baldwin in June. Here's another domino. Welcome, Tobias!
