2017 high school schedules for all Missouri Football commits

Who are your soon-to-be favorite Mizzou players playing and when? It’s all here.

Oscar Gambler

After a July rush, Missouri’s 2018 recruiting class sits at 14 commits. The Tigers don’t anticipate any new pledges in the week before the season starts so let’s take a look at the current group’s high school season schedules.

The idea here is to update with highlights and notable news week by week.


2018 Missouri Tiger football commit schedules

Mizzou is set at quarterback for the next two years with Drew Lock and have talented freshman Micah Wilson and Tyler Powell already developing under offensive coordinator Josh Heupel so James Foster is likely the only quarterback commit this year.

Quarterback James Foster’s Lanier High School is a 6A program on the rise in Alabama, having hosted a playoff game after a strong 8-win season last year but lost to Park Crossing who we’ll see later on this list. Lanier features Foster as well as Mizzou linebacker commit La’Dedrick Jackson; their opening game tonight will see them compete against blue-chip Mizzou target defensive lineman Alfred Thomas of Lee High School.
