A week full of departures from the Missouri football program included the loss of a key commitment. With 11 days until National Signing Day, Missouri’s recruiting class has holes in key spots.
Where Missouri’s 2017 recruiting class is ranked
The Missouri recruiting class slipped another spot this week and is now ranked No. 42 in 247Sports’ national rankings among 2017 classes.
The Tigers held firm with the 12th-ranked class in the SEC, ahead of Mississippi and Vanderbilt. The class now includes 19 commitments and one junior college signee.
Who are Missouri’s top 2017 commitments
ATH Daron Davis (Kansas City, Mo.), 3-star
WR Jafar Armstrong (Mission, Kans.), 3-star
C Case Cook (Carrollton, Ga.), 3-star
OLB Aubrey Miller (Memphis, Tenn.), 3-star
OT Hyrin Wright (DeSoto, Texas), 3-star
Who committed to the Tigers this week?
Missouri’s class didn’t grow at all in the past 7 days.
Who de-committed from Missouri this week?
The 2017 Missouri recruiting class no longer features a quarterback at this point. This week, 3-star dual-threat quarterback/athlete Reyondous Estes flipped his commitment to Minnesota. New Minnesota coach P.J. Fleck had a commitment from Estes while at Western Michigan. After he de-committed from Western Michigan in August he committed to Missouri the same day. Now, he has announced he will join Fleck in Minnesota.
Who are Missouri’s top uncommitted targets?
Defensive end Chester Graves of Kansas City, Mo. (Park Hill) appears to be the best opportunity for Missouri to land a 4-star recruit. Graves is the top recruit in the state of Missouri, but there is a report that Graves is expected to attend junior college.
Jeff Thomas, a 4-star receiver from East St. Louis, Ill., announced his top 3 schools recently, and Missouri was left on the outside looking in. Thomas, No. 6 among receivers in the nation will choose between Louisville, Miami (Fla.) and Oregon.
