This. Recruiting. Class. Is. LOADED.

Like, the highest-ranked recruiting class in program history type of loaded.

A potential program-changing five-star wide receiver from East St. Louis? Check. Luther Burden III is officially a Missouri Tiger.

A four-star QB that has all the potential to be one Mizzou’s all-time greats? Check. Sam Horn officially became the first 2022 Tiger to sign.

Plenty of other three and four-star recruits that are in-state commits and decided to stay HOME to build the foundation of this program? Check.

Here’s the rest of the 2022 class (so far).

14 of the previously 15 committed recruits have officially signed with Missouri, as Mizzou waits on one more — Deshawn Woods from Omaha, Nebraska.

The one actual commit for Mizzou on Wednesday afternoon was a big one, and that was Boonville, Missouri native DJ Wesolak.

With Wesolak’s commitment, here’s where Mizzou’s 2022 recruiting class ranks right now:

Rivals: 18th in the country, ninth in the SEC (one five-star, six four-stars, nine three-stars)

247Sports: 12th in the country, fifth in the SEC (one five-star, seven four-stars, eight three-stars)

($$) ESPN: 10th in the country, fourth in the SEC (one five-star, nine four-stars, six three-stars) - Half of Mizzou’s recruiting class are ESPN 300 commits.

Wednesday was a pretty cool day to be a Mizzou fan, in my opinion.

And, if you missed SEC Network’s coverage of National Signing Day, check out Drinkwitz’s interview with Gene Chizik and Roman Harper. Great stuff.

Also, say what you want about Cuonzo Martin right now, but I thought this was really, really cool. Credit where credit is due.

Onto the links. M-I-Z!
