Check out some last-minute recruiting news for Mizzou
With signing day less than 24 hours away, plenty of news is emanating from the Missouri Tigers camp. Sitting on 16 commitments for this class, the Tigers are primed to add to its rather modest class.
On Tuesday, Mizzou did garner a pledge from an unheralded prospect out of Georgia named Dimetrios Mason. Mason opted to play for Barry Odom over interest from South Alabama, Marshall, and Georgia State.
While Mason isn't exactly a household name, the receiver's Hudl account indicates that he runs a 40-yard dash in 4.25 seconds. Even if he's somewhat close to that eye-popping time, Mason may be bringing some serious speed to Columbia.
In need of some skill position help, Missouri also tripped in Alabama commitment Brendan Scales last weekend. A tight end from nearby Wildwood, Mo., he could ultimately flip his pledge and stay close to home. It'd be a massive development for the Tigers if it were to occur.
Speaking of massive, talented defensive prospect Keyshon Camp has narrowed his choices down to Pitt and Mizzou. A onetime commit to USC, the Florida native also recently visited Columbia. Camp is aggressive, powerful, and possesses very good quickness.
He would add to the already impressive collection of talent up front that Missouri has to its disposal. It will be fascinating to see whether Camp would indeed sign with the Tigers -- considering reports indicating that Missouri just hired a new defensive coach (Jackie Shipp) earlier this week. One would think there isn't much in the way of a relationship between Camp and Shipp.
