Mizzou Having Strong Recruiting Weekend

The Fourth of July holiday weekend isn’t quite halfway over and you can still say it has been a very successful weekend for BOTH the University of Missouri men’s basketball and football program.

The excitement began Friday evening with the commitments of 6’4 ESL point guard Christian Jones to Coach Cuonzo Martins’ ballclub. He is considered a 3* recruit by most of the ratings services.

Later that evening the football squad got in on the fun with a commitment from Tavorus Jones, one of the top running backs in the state of Texas. Coach Eli Drinkwitz added to that on Saturday mid-day when DeShawn Woods, an OL and the top recruit in the state of Nebraska, pledged his commitment. Both athletes are considered 4* recruits AND Top 250 in the country.

It’s possible that MU football could add one or two more recruits by the end of the week.
