Mizzou gains yet another commit following visit to campus

The Missouri Tigers are on a recruiting role this month as their latest commitment comes from offensive lineman Mackenzie Nworah of Manvel, Texas. Nworah becomes the Tigers' sixth commitment in only a seven-day span.

At six-foot-four, and 305-pounds, Nworah already possesses the frame to play in the most physical league in the nation and should only get stronger as he ages. Following his announcement, Nworah spoke to Scout.com to discuss why it was the Tigers who won his pledge over Arizona State, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech and Kansas State among many others.

“It wasn’t my original plan (to commit),” explained Nworah. “My original plan was just to go (to Missouri) and soak everything in, and then come back home. But I had the green light if everything there was great. And so I made my decision.”

Soon after his decision, Coach Pinkel welcomed Nworah to the team: “I talked to Coach Pinkel before and after I committed,” Nworah said. “He was really excited for me. After I committed, he said to me, 'Welcome to the family'.”


The Texas native becomes the 10th overall commitment in the Tigers' latest recruiting class, which now includes two native Texans.
