National Signing Day is upon us. Here's the rest of the news.

What's On

University of Missouri Athletics - #MIZNSD16 Central

Live on Mizzou Network: For the fifth straight year, Mizzou Network will have a free LIVE Signing Day show, where fans can get their first look at the newest Tigers.

Ben Arnet and  Lauren Holman  will host the proceedings live from the Mizzou Football offices in the Mizzou Athletics Training Complex from 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. (CT). The show will not only be the first place to find out who the newest Tigers are, but it will also include interviews with head coach Barry Odom and Mizzou assistant coaches offering perspective on the newest members of the Mizzou family. In addition to video highlights of each Tiger signee, as well as features on various aspects of the Mizzou Football program, current Tiger players will stop by to offer the latest news on Mizzou Football.

Maybe you heard the big news? Nate Latsch from had the scoop: TE Brendan Scales Flips Commitment From Alabama to Missouri

"It was really hard because of the relationships I’ve built," Scales told "The time, the effort, the money put in (making visits to Alabama). It was hard. I just feel like this was the best thing for me and I want to feel wanted."

Mizzou also received the commitment of Demetrios Mason, a WR/DB out of Georgia. There was some confusion as to who it was yesterday and that was furthered by questions about how to properly spell his name - it altered between Dimetrios, Demetrios and Demitrios over the course of an hour.

There was also some confusion about whether or not a kid committed to North Dakota State did or didn't have an offer. It likely won't matter since he's staying committed.

The Tigers are one of two finalists for DT Keyshon Camp, who was supposed to visit Mizzou last week before Chris Wilson flew the coop for Philadelphia. Including Missouri is almost certainly just because Camp needs another hat on the table for his announcement, but a surprise defensive tackle commitment sure would be nice.

That also gives me a chance to introduce something I think some will be interested. We've brought RockMRecruiting into the fold to help us keep track of Mizzou Football recruiting news. It'll be a separate twitter account we encourage you to follow if you're interested. It'll also chip in by providing posts about significant new offers the staff has made.

I also went and plotted the entire current list of commits on a map, for your enjoyment. These things will obviously be subject to change if any current commits flip to or from Missouri - until then you can click on the little Tiger emojis to learn more about who they are.

Missouri Recruiting Rankings Roundup: The Day Before - Columbia Daily Tribune

You've got Tre Williams No. 1 in your state rankings. Why so high?

"In the state of Missouri, there’s not anybody else that, this fall, could line up and compete in the SEC East. Tre could on pretty certain passing downs. He’s long, he bends very well, he’s very well-coached, he’s got a terrific burst to the ball. Of course, the obvious flaw is muscle mass and tensile strength. He couldn’t shed college run blocking yet. So that wouldn’t be a good idea to stick him out there, but he’s the one guy who has a skill that could immediately come to play right away."

Signing day 2015: How'd the impact decisions from the SEC turn out? - SEC Blog- ESPN

DL Terry Beckner Jr. ESPN 300 rank: No. 2 2015 season: It has been a roller coaster for Beckner over the past 12 months. Last February, he opted to stay close to home and sign with Missouri much to the delight of the fans. However, he struggled to adapt to the college game early in the season. Then around the middle of October, the switch flipped. In a four-game span -- all in SEC play -- he had 18 tackles, five tackles for loss and three sacks. But just as he was starting to become a force, his season came to a crashing halt when he tore his ACL. And to add insult to injury, he was arrested last month for possession of marijuana and suspended from the team indefinitely.
