Previous Posts JUCO defender Walter Palmore commits to Mizzou

From Monday’s commitment article:

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.

We still don’t know about Young, Palmore’s aboard, giving Mizzou at least four defensive tackles (two from high school, two from JUCO) for the 2017 class.
