Missouri To Host Prospects For Junior Day

New Missouri football coach Barry Odom will host his first Junior Day with the Tigers on Saturday.

The University of Missouri football program will hold its first Junior Day under new coach Barry Odom on Saturday and several of the state’s top prospects are expected to attend. 

The Tigers currently have one player in the Class of 2017 already committed to the program in Kansas City wide receiver DaRon Davis. A four-star prospect, Davis committed in November and will now look to help recruit others to his home-state program. 

Among those who will be in Columbia on Saturday include Columbia Battle High School junior wide receiver Jaevon McQuitty, Trinity Catholic High School offensive tackle Larry Boyd, Pittsburg (KS) High School tight end Trevor Kent, Hutto (Texas) High School defensive end Ondario Robinson and Winnetonka (Shawnee Mission, KS) High School junior cornerback Djimon Colbert. Davis and McQuitty are both Scout 300 prospects.


McQuitty recently received an offer from Missouri and posted on Twitter that he could decide soon between Mizzou and Nebraska. Boyd has offers from Missouri, WisconsinMinnesota and Illinois among others. Kent's impressive offer list includes Michigan, Nebraska and Penn State. Robinson has offers from Mizzou, Georgia and Mississippi among others. Colbert isn’t believed to have an offer from the Tigers, but does have offers from Nebraska, Iowa and Kansas

Offensive lineman Dalton Wagner, a junior from Richmond-Burton High School in Illinois, has offers from Missouri, Arkansas, Louisville and Illinois among others and is another name to watch. As are St. Louis University High School junior running back Andrew Clair, who holds an offer from Iowa, and Raymore-Peculiar High School defensive standout Anthony Payne.

Some of the biggest names expected to be in Columbia on Saturday are only high school sophomores, but those Class of 2018 prospects already hold offers from the Tigers.

That group is led by a pair of four-star defensive tackles from the St. Louis area — Trevor Trout from Chaminade High School and Michael Thompson from Parkway North High School. 

Two sophomore wide receiver prospects from St. Louis, Kamryn Babb (CBC High School) and Dallas Craddieth (Hazelwood Central High School), both hold early offers from the Tigers. 

One of the top freshmen in the St. Louis area, athlete Isaiah Williams from Trinity Catholic High School, is also expected to make the trip to Columbia.
