3-star defensive tackle Markell Utsey commits to Missouri

Mizzou's 17th commit is a defensive tackle out of Arkansas

Just shortly after four-star Little Rock running back Damarea Crockett flipped to Mizzou, the Tigers flipped a second Little Rock recruit.

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!
