On Saturday, the Missouri Tigers received a verbal commitment from 2015 DT prospect Tyrell Jacobs 6’4” 265 Metairie (LA) Rummel. Not long after, Jacobs spoke with ShowMeMizzou.com, and he talked about his commitment to Missouri.

“It’s awesome!” explained Jacobs, who went on to say that his parents, who are with him on his official visit, encouraged him to commit to Missouri. “The time was getting short. I was going to wait until Signing Day, but I didn’t want to miss out.”

Jacobs cited the family atmosphere and having a chance to play early as factors in his decision to commit to Missouri. He spent time with other official visitors, as well as with Harold Brantley and other Missouri players.

“My parents love Missouri! They wanted me to go ahead and commit,” explained Jacobs, who will sign will Missouri in February and will arrive at Missouri in June.
