Recruiting can be a fickle game of back and forth between a recruit and a school.
Mizzou can breathe at least a little easier knowing at least one recruit will almost surely put their name on the dotted line during the early signing period.
Jalen Knox, who committed to Mizzou back in June, had this to say about his word to the Tigers.

The Tigers already knew he was coming, but it offers some piece of mind that he’s shutting down his recruitment and almost certainly coming to Columbia.
Knox, a member of the 2018 class, stands 5-foot-11 and weighs 185 pounds according to 247Sports. The recruiting outlet also noted he’s a three-star recruit out of Mansfield Timberview High School in Arlington, Texas.
He’s the 71st best player in the state and the 39th best athlete while ranking 527th nationally according to the site.
