Mizzou lands commitment from 4-star QB out of Georgia

This is Missouri’s 5th commitment of the 2022 class.

mizzou football recruiting 2020

Spring football is underway, and the ensuing storylines have dominated much of the conversation around the gridiron (FCS ball notwithstanding.) Mizzou is no exception... that is, until Tiger coaches start teasing things on Twitter.

In his tweet Casey Woods, Mizzou’s recruiting coordinator and tight ends coach, is obviously making reference to the nickname, “field general,” a common nickname given to QBs. And after some pondering over who the potential commit could be, the news dropped.

We’ve fully documented Eli Drinkwitz’s recruiting prowess, which is pretty unprecedented in modern Missouri history. However, this may be his finest pull yet. Horn is a consensus top 100 prospect in the country — he’s 82nd in 247’s Composite — and is considered one of the five best pro-style quarterback prospects in the 2022 class.

The addition of Horn means that Missouri’s 2022 QB room will likely include two four-star recruits and the 2020 SEC Freshman of the Year. Mizzou hasn’t had that sort of talent at the most important position on the field since Chase Patton was backing up Chase Daniel in the late 2000’s. If I remember correctly, those days were pretty good.

One other note: Based on Horn’s commitment post, it would appear he has some interest in playing both baseball and football. Horn’s full Perfect Game profile is behind a paywall, but it does show he’s got a 91 mile-per-hour fastball, which is generally good enough to get you a Division 1 scholarship if you’ve got the accuracy to match.

Whew. I’m sweating over here.

Sam Horn is, by every fair definition of the word, a gunslinger. He’s clearly not afraid to rear back and let it fly, and he appears to have good accuracy on the deep ball. He looks mobile enough to create — even if he still looks a little jittery — and has the size you want for a future pro. He looks to have a little bit of Drew Lock in his game, which I’m sure most of the Missouri fan base would accept in a heartbeat.
