Missouri football picks up to 2017 recruiting target

The Missouri Tigers kick off their 2017 commitment list with state's top football prospect in class.

The Missouri Tigers may have lost their game against Mississippi State, but they gained a big time recruit when Kansas City (MO) Hogan Prep WR/RB DaRon Davis 6'2" 190 made a verbal commitment to the Tigers on Thursday night.

"Yes, sir, I did," said Davis when asked by ShowMeMizzou.com if he had committed to Mizzou following a tweet circulating on Twitter which signals a new Tiger football commitment.

When asked if Mizzou has been his leader all along, he responded," I had a feeling they would be the one."
