Missouri gained some offensive line help for next season in the form of 6'6", 300 pound Hyrin White. A three-star offensive tackle from DeSoto High School in DeSoto, Texas. White committed to Missouri on March 17. He chose Mizzou over Arizona State, Colorado, Oklahoma State, SMU, and UCLA among others. Missouri is probably looking to add around six or seven lineman in this class. You can check out our full analysis on White's commitment here. Welcome, Hyrin!

Targets committing elsewhere

  • Missouri recently lost out on its last uncommitted quarterback target when 3* Hendon Hooker committed to Virginia Tech. Mizzou was among his finalists, but Hooker is the second QB Justin Fuente has snagged from Barry Odom following Jérod Evans who visited Columbia late last year before picking the Hokies.
  • Trevor Kent is a three-star tight end from Pittsburg High School in Pittsburg, Kansas. Kent picked up an offer from Mizzou about two months ago and attended the Tiger's Junior Day. Kent was showing the Tigers some love last week, before committing to Northwestern along with Mizzou target DE Earnest Brown out of Denton, Texas.
  • Grayson Reed is a four-star offensive tackle from Cypress Creek High School in Houston. Reed announced his top 12 schools on March 23 which did not include Missouri. Of course, Reed has not committed but the chances of pulling the lineman out of Texas appear slim.

Mizzou on the radar

The Tigers shot out some amazing edits in the past week hoping to pique recruits interest.

Jalen Reagor (5'11", 182) is a four-star wide receiver from Waxahachie High School in Texas.  Reagor picked up an offer from Mizzou about a month ago. 247Sports views Texas Tech as the current favorite even though Reagor decommitted from the Red Raiders on March 10.

B1G Country

Recently, the Tigers have looked north of Columbia for future Tigers, especially offensive weapons and linemen.
