Mizzou adds commitment from Florida cornerback

This is Missouri’s 9th commitment of the 2021 class.

football recruiting 2019

Just a few weeks ago, I was typing up the recruiting roundtable we would publish on the state of secondary recruiting in the Missouri Tiger program. I noted how 2021 had yet to bring in a secondary recruit, and wondered if Drinkwitz would focus on the position in the near future.

Before we could publish, Darius Jackson committed. And just a few weeks later, Drinkwitz has added a second cornerback recruit to the 2021 class.

Sistrunk isn’t as much of a known quantity for a class which still consists mostly of St. Louis area recruits. But there’s no doubt that he’s an important addition — if you look below at his offer sheet, you’ll see why.

Get to know: Davion Sistrunk

Hometown: Melbourne, FL

High School: Eau Gallie

Position: Athlete/CB

Ht/Wt: 6’2, 170 lbs

Rivals Ranking: 3-star, 5.6

247Composite Ranking: N/A

Total announced offers: 26

You may have noticed it in his bio above, but the first thing that stands out about Sistrunk is his size. In his highlight video, Sistrunk is listed at 6’3” so there’s probably some disparity about his actual height, but it doesn’t really matter as long as he uses it. And while Sistrunk is raw and susceptible to being beat, he’s often able to recover using his long strides, height and long arms. That’s good news, as those are traits you can’t coach up. If he’s able to put a little more muscle on his frame and develop some of his footwork, he’s going to be a beast corner* in the coming years.

It should also be noted that Sistrunk is a talented three-sport athlete, being named his district’s Player of the Year in basketball and qualifying for regionals in the 110-meter hurdle a year ago.
