BREAKING: Three-star DT Justin Bodford commits to Mizzou

This is Missouri’s seventh commitment of the 2024 class.

And the recruiting run continues!

Last weekend’s ‘crootin bonanza caused a stir amongst the Mizzou faithful, but we know the history of these group recruiting trips... they don’t always work out how we’d like.

This time, however, Eli Drinkwitz seems to have figured out the formula. On Sunday morning, Florida 3-star defensive tackle Justin Bodford committed to the Tigers, becoming the staff’s fourth commitment in three days.

And from what we understand, the hits may still be coming...

Keep Rock M bookmarked for recruiting news in the near future! And let’s get to know Justin Bodford a little better.

Pretty textbook defensive tackle take right here. Bodford is already a pretty big dude, but has some room to fill out. Mizzou’s strength and conditioning team, however, will want to make sure they don’t compromise Bodford’s initial burst off the line and his ability to get downhill quickly — two things he does really well in his tape. With some work in the weight room, Bodford could join a proud lineage of defensive tackles who blow up many a play in the opposing backfield.
