Previous Posts JUCO defensive lineman Nate Anderson commits to Missouri

The product of New Mexico Military Institute (via Prattville, Ala.) racked up 13.5 tackles for loss in the first seven games 2016, showing solid prowess against both run and pass. From his original commitment article:

In 2016, he played defensive end for NMMI and, as you can see from the highlights above, showed serious speed rush potential. One assumes his potential versatility was a draw for Barry Odom and staff as well. From his height, weight, position history, and everything else, it appears he could be a player who could play either stand-up defensive end or more of an end/OLB hybrid position.

Anderson joins a defensive end unit that features plenty of potential but, beyond Marcell Frazier, little proven production. He’ll have a chance to produce immediately. Mizzou dipped significantly into the JUCO ranks to shore up #DLineZou in this recruiting class. We’ll see if it pays off.
