Happy Saturday! Before Mizzou’s Fall Camp officially starts on Monday, there was somewhat of a surprise commitment this afternoon as Eli Drinkwitz and the staff adds to their 2023 recruiting class.

Three-star cornerback Shamar McNeil from American Heritage High School in the Fort Lauderdale, Florida area (Plantation) has announced his commitment to Missouri.

McNeil was also recently on a visit to Mizzou just a couple of days ago.

McNeil becomes the first commit among the defensive back position in this year’s class, and is the first commit from the state of Florida since the 2021 class when the staff brought in Davion Sistrunk and Zachary Lovett.

While McNeil didn’t receive any other Power Five offers, he did get some interest from Rutgers and Wisconsin, according to his 247 Recruiting page.

From “Can’t Miss Sports” Twitter account last year, McNeil was named to one of the elite high school safeties in the state of Florida.
