Palmore is a mid-three-star recruit per both the 247Sports Composite and Rivals, and in two years at EAC, he recorded 57.5 tackles and 9.5 tackles for loss. He and his teammate, JUCO All-American Malik Young (also a defensive tackle), visited Columbia this past weekend. Young’s signing decision is expected on Wednesday.
Missouri’s No. 1 priority with its 2017 class was bolstering defensive line depth. The Tigers have now done that, securing five defensive line commits thus far, with potentially a couple more still to go. Palmore will have the opportunity to contribute quickly.
