Harry Ballard Makes It Official; Three-Star Wide Receiver Signs With Missouri

St. Louis area three-star wide receiver signs with the Missouri Tigers after making a verbal commitment in February.

Harry Ballard made it official on Friday. 

The playmaking McCluer North Class of 2016 wide receiver made a verbal commitment to the University of Missouri in February, not long after National Signing Day, but wasn’t able to officially sign with the Tigers until Friday.  


The 6-foot-2, 205-pound wide receiver did just that on Friday afternoon.


Ballard becomes the 22nd member of Mizzou coach Barry Odom’s first recruiting class and is the third wide receiver, joining California junior college standout Dominic Collins and Georgia speedster Dimetrios Mason


Ballard caught 32 passes for 606 yards, an average of 18.9 yards per reception, and 10 touchdowns as a senior. He added 395 yards rushing with four more touchdowns on the ground. He scored 15 touchdowns and added five 2-point conversions.
