Missouri has landed its second commitment of the day with the announcement that tackle Bobby Lawrence has flipped to the Tigers from Iowa State.

Lawrence, out of Central HS in Saint Joseph, Mo. is a 3-star recruit and ranked the No. 121 tackle and No. 17 overall player in Missouri by 247Sports national composite rankings. At 6-foot-8 and 300 pounds, Lawrence could help the Tigers offensive line immediately with his size and strength.
Lawrence originally committed to Iowa State on Jan. 17 on a grayshirt offer, but will most likely sign with the home-state Tigers on Wednesday, which is National Signing Day. He had recently picked up an offer from Nebraska as well after being visited by new Cornhuskers coach Scott Frost, offensive line coach Greg Austin, running backs coach Ryan Held, inside linebackers coach Barrett Ruud and defensive coordinator Erik Chinander on Jan. 28.
He is the second commitment that Barry Odom and his staff have picked up on Monday, with 3-star linebacker Nick Bolton switching his school choice from Washington to the Tigers.
Missouri’s 2018 signing class is currently ranked No. 39 in the nation and No. 13 in the SEC. Out of the 24 commitments, all of them are 3-stars.
