The Missouri Tigers weren’t one of the biggest winners in terms of recruiting in the past week, but they had a net gain for the week, with one player signing, two others committing, and one other de-committing. All in all, Tigers fans would have to chalk this week up as a success for Missouri recruiting.
Where Missouri’s 2017 recruiting class is ranked
Thanks to the aforementioned key additions, the Tigers moved up five spots nationally to No. 36 in the past week. They stayed put as the 12th-ranked class in the SEC. The class consists of 18 commitments and one JUCO signee right now.
Who are Missouri’s top 2017 commitments
- ATH Daron Davis (Kansas City, Mo.), 3-star
- WR Jafar Armstrong (Mission, Kan.), 3-star
- C Case Cook (Carrolton, Ga.), 3-star
- CB Terry Petry (Missouri City, Texas), 3-star
Who committed to the Tigers this week
The Tigers landed offensive tackle Yasir Durant from Arizona Western College on Junior College Signing Day Wednesday. The 6-foot-6, 330-pound lineman was the 16th ranked JUCO offensive tackle in the 2017 class.
A pair of running backs committed to Missouri as well. Former Oregon State commit Isaiah Miller had a change of heart, and fellow running back Larry Rountree III also verbally committed to Missouri.

Who de-committed from Missouri this week
Missouri went more than a month without a de-commit, but receiver Roderick Ford from Fort Worth, Texas, backed out of his commitment on Wednesday.
Who are Missouri’s top uncommitted targets?
Missouri still has some work to do if it wants to land a pair of 4-star recruits it is going after. Wide Receiver Jeff Thomas of East St. Louis, Ill., is the second-ranked prospect in the state and the eighth-ranked receiver in the nation. Thomas visited a camp at Missouri during the summer, but his most recent visits were a pair of unofficial visits to Illinois.
Missouri also has it eyes on 4-star defensive end Chester Graves, who is the top prospect in the state of Missouri. 247Sports has projected the Tigers and Ole Miss among his favorites.
