Texas WR Clark Commits to Missouri

Speedy wide receiver O'Shae Clark becomes Missouri's fifth commitment from Texas in the Class of 2017.

After losing two wide receivers this week to decommitments, the Missouri Tigers went back to Texas to grab a commitment from undersized playmaking wide receiver O'Shae Clark from Cypress Springs High School. 

Clark’s coach, Rick Cobia, confirmed the news on Twitter.


Clark, who is listed at 5-foot-9 and 165 pounds on his HUDL profile, put up big numbers during his senior season. In 10 games he had 70 receptions for 1,736 and 18 touchdowns and also scored a rushing touchdown, on a kickoff return and an interception return.

The impressive production of the Cypress Springs standout, who was considering signing with Southeastern Louisiana before Missouri came calling, earned him Associated Press Class 6A first-team all-state accolades.

Clark measured at 5-7 and 147 pounds at the Nike Opening regional camp in Houston last spring, where he turned in one of the top pro agility (shuttle) times in 4.10 seconds. 

He is the second wide receiver commitment in the Class of 2017 for the Tigers, along with DaRon Davis. Missouri lost commitments Jafar Armstrong to Notre Dame and Elijah Gardiner to Ohio State this week after they had been committed to the Tigers for months.
