2016 Missouri football recruiting: Ca'Ron Baham commits to Tigers

New, 11 comments

Missouri secured its fourth commitment of the 2016 class on Saturday, landing recently offered Marrero, La., athlete Ca'Ron Baham.

Baham is being recruited as an athlete, with no specific position in mind, and it's not hard to see why. He's fast.

So much of his highlight film is running zone-read keepers and destroying defenders' angles in the open field. That obviously doesn't tell us much about his potential ability as a receiver or defensive back (and he has played both of those positions in high school), but the raw athleticism is undeniable. The odds are good that the coaches will figure out something pretty fun to do with him.

Marrero is an area of New Orleans just south of the Mississippi River. Mizzou has been offering Louisiana kids for a while but hasn't landed many, so this is an encouraging sign in that regard. Baham committed to Mizzou very quickly after they offered, and that's always exciting to see. He is a speedy, welcome addition to the 2016 class, no matter what position he ends up occupying. Welcome, Ca'Ron.
