Just shortly after four-star Little Rock running back Damarea Crockett flipped to Mizzou, the Tigers flipped a second Little Rock recruit.
Source confirms that Utsey is the 2nd #Mizzou commitment of the day. Hope to have more later tonight.— Gabe DeArmond (@GabeDeArmond) January 24, 2016
Here's Markell Utsey announcing his commitment to Mizzou:
Our friends over at our Arizona Wildcats blog spoke with him when they were his first offer.
Utsey is a surprise commitment and not one of the 2016 recruits we expected to visit this weekend. He's a three-star recruit according to ESPN, a three-star according to 247, and a Rivals two-star. The 6'4, 290-pound defensive tackle had been committed to Arizona since July.
Welcome to Mizzou, Markell!
