What they’re saying:
Daniel Blood, 3⭐️ WR from Destrehan, Louisiana, has committed to Missouri’s 2023 recruiting class.— Dave Matter (@Dave_Matter) November 24, 2022
Blood is the third wide receiver commitment to the ‘23 class, joining 3-star speedster Marquis Johnson and blue-chipper Joshua Manning (Nick DeLoach is listed as a receiver but is projected to play corner at Mizzou). The Tigers lose Barrett Banister - and probably Tauskie Dove - at the end of this year so adding 2-3 new guys to the receiving corps is a good move. Blood is an overlooked prospect as you can tell by the regional flavoring of his offers but wide receivers coach Jacob Peeler sees something that he definitely wants and the Tigers were able to poach away the Louisiana native with his lone P5 offer.
Welcome to Mizzou, Daniel!
