Jay-Mac 2, Electric Boogaloo: 3-star Kirkwood (Mo.) WR Jay Maclin commits to Missouri

New, 1 comment

Jeremy Maclin’s cousin becomes Missouri’s third 2020 commitment

Three-star St. Louis (Mo.) Kirkwoord receiver Jay Maclin announced his commitment to Missouri on Thursday, picking the Tigers over Arizona State and Indiana as finalists.

Jay Maclin isn’t quite as highly regarded as his recently-retired cousin, but at 5-foot-11, 178-pounds, he’s right around Jeremy’s size as a recruit (6-foot, 187-pounds). He’s an ideal fit for the slot in Missouri’s offense. The Tigers lose five scholarship receivers (including Richaud Floyd, although he played cornerback this spring) after this season; although they still have a small army at that position, Missouri will specifically lose starting slot receiver Johnathon Johnson.

Maclin is Missouri’s third commitment in the 2020 class, and joins quarterback Brady Cook as the second commitment from the St. Louis area.
