Missouri Makes Top Six Schools For Nashville Defensive Tackle Hutch

Tennessee defensive tackle Ben Hutch released his top six schools.

Nashville Class of 2017 defensive tackle Ben Hutch released his top six schools on Wednesday via his Twitter account and Missouri made the list.

Hutch’s top six schools are Louisville, Memphis, Nebraska, Penn State, Missouri and Texas A&M.

A 6-foot-3, 305-pounder, Hutch racked up 32.5 tackles, 10 tackles for loss and four sacks during his junior season at Hillsboro High School. 

Hutch, a three-star prospect rated as the 67th-best defensive tackle prospect in the Class of 2017, visited Mizzou in mid May and received an offer from the Tigers a few days later.

The Tigers signed two defensive linemen in February — tackle Markell Utsey and end Tre Williams — but will lose a few after the 2016 season and will need to replenish the roster on the DL. 

Defensive tackles Josh Augusta, Rickey Hatley and Harold Brantley are entering their senior seasons. Defensive end Charles Harris could leave early for the 2017 NFL Draft
