2016 Missouri football recruiting: Kicker Tucker McCann commits to Tigers

New, comments

Goodness, this class is going to be filled up by the end of the week at this rate...

This class is now filling up quickly. Earlier today, Mizzou landed a commitment from highly touted O'Fallon (Ill.) kicker Tucker McCann.

As David Morrison mentions above, if McCann indeed ends up signing with Mizzou in February, that will be two scholarship legs in two years, including punter Corey Fatony. Mizzou has had plenty of success with the Jeff Wolferts and Andrew Baggetts and Christian Brinsers of the world, but they seem to be attempting to raise their game from a special teams standpoint. And let's just say it's not hard to see what they like about McCann.

That's a big leg. Kohl'sKicking.com lists him as a five-star kicker (No. 2 overall in the class of 2016) and 4.5-star punter. That's good enough for me.

McCann is the eighth commitment of the class and the fourth since Friday. With Mizzou expected to take between 16 and 20 players, the class is between 40 and 50 percent full. WELCOME, TUCKER.
