We’re getting down to the final few hours before Signing Day and several prospects have yet to make their final decisions on their college destinations.
New Missouri football coach Barry Odom is trying to put the finishing touches on his first recruiting class of Tigers and will be waiting to hear what some kids decide on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Here is a quick look at a few players to watch…
But it is worth keeping an eye on because he did take an official visit to Missouri in mid January.
Running back prospect Joshua Jacobs from McLain High School in Tulsa, OK., has seen his recruiting stock skyrocket in recent days following a sensational senior season that saw him run for 2,704 yards and score 31 touchdowns.
He’s considered a soft verbal to the Tigers, but has gone back and forth between the two schools for a few weeks. So it may be 50-50 as to where he signs on Wednesday.
The Tigers are looking to add some talent to the offensive line and Simms would fit the bill, along with the recent trend of East St. Louis prospects signing with Missouri.
Tight end Brendan Scales from Lafayette High School in Wildwood, Mo., has been committed to Alabama since last spring but took an official visit to Missouri last weekend.
He’s still likely to sign with the Crimson Tide, but it’s also possible that he ends up staying home.
