Previous Posts Aug. 4: Kirkwood athlete Jerod Alton commits to Mizzou

From Alton's commitment article:

The 5'10, 178-pound athlete from the St. Louis area is reportedly being recruited as a defensive back or slot WR for Mizzou's 2016 recruiting class.

Playing as a running back, he seems to have solid speed and vision. Rivals just re-ranked him as a three-star athlete, and it appears his coaches tried to get him the ball as many ways as possible.

Danny Heitert:

I thought his break on thrown balls, his closing speed to the ball and that same toughness, I thought he projected as a better corner than he did as an offensive player.
