It took a couple of years longer than he maybe hoped, but Harry Ballard III is on his way to Columbia. Hell yeah.

From the original commitment article:
Despite his status as a top-10 in-state prospect for the class of 2016, Harry Ballard III never really saw his recruitment take off because of qualification risks. It appears that he didn't take his grades very seriously early in high school and was facing a likely JUCO detour because of it. [...]
Missouri just landed perhaps the most explosive, freakishly athletic prospect in the state for the 2016 cycle. Ballard's highlight film above belies a player who is stronger and faster than everybody else on the field and knows it. And he plays in a position of need for the Tigers.
Ballard needed a detour to get here, but he’s on his way. WELCOME, HARRY.
