Things have been fairly quiet on the Mizzou football recruiting front since the Shamar Nash’s commitment, but the Missouri Tigers and Barry Odom added a Michigan native to their class with a pledge from 6’3 safety Aidan Harrison.
You don’t have to watch the highlights very long to see what the Tigers saw: the kid has good size and can move. Watch him just run away from every one on the first highlight.
With his size, it would seem a position switch to linebacker might be in order — he would seem to fit well on the outside.
Missouri was Harrison’s only SEC offer, and one of only four overall offers for the Flushing native, who does not yet have a 247Sports Composite rating. The Tigers beat out Iowa State, Ball State, and Buffalo. He also spoke of having interest from basically all the directional Michigan schools: Central, Western, Eastern, plus Cincinnati, Cornell, Bowling Green, Miami (OH), and Michigan State.
So welcome Aidan! We’ll see you in stripes soon enough!
