Mizzou looks to develop new recruits (http://www.stltoday.com/sports/columns/benjamin-hochman/hochman-mizzou-looks-to-develop-new-recruits/article_184bb62f-2b98-5e8a-b772-674682f8b131.html)

Quote
But the reality is, Mizzou’s new class doesn’t look very good. On paper, it looks Vanderbilt-good (well, Vanderbilt-bad). OK, yes, but the hope for fans is that coach Barry Odom, like his predecessor Gary Pinkel, can take two-star talents and turn them into four-star standouts.

“Gary did such a great job with his philosophy on true evaluation and numbers — really digging down deep,” Odom said Thursday night, from a St. Louis event put together by the Mizzou Tiger Club. “That’s one of the many things I admired about him, just the way he approached that, really getting a true evaluation of a kid, more than height and weight, but looking at how a kid could be, and how can we develop him in three years down the road? And he absolutely hit on a whole bunch of them who have been really good players.”

Pinkel’s program thrived for years because of development.

Blog: We tackle the age-old "Do recruiting rankings matter?" question and come up with that shrugging guy emoticon- http://bit.ly/1QT1lm9 .

Quote
"Recruiting rankings mean nothing!" one will tell you.

"Recruiting rankings mean everything!" the other will say.

We took the 12 offensive and defensive players that played the most for Missouri over the past three seasons (the only years we've kept our snap counts) and sized them up by 247Sports' composite star rankings...

...



So what, if anything, does this teach us.

For one team in a very limited sample of three years, it appears talent (247Sports composite rating) has more to do with success than time put in (average years in the system or starting).

Yes, even at Missouri.

Recapping Missouri's national signing day http://es.pn/1Q7K5X8

Quote
Geography almost prevents Missouri Tigers from landing classes that rank alongside some of the Tigers’ SEC rivals at the top of the leaderboard. First-year head coach Barry Odom signed a class that ESPN ranked 51st nationally, indicating that, like predecessor Gary Pinkel, player development will remain an especially important aspect of the Missouri head coach’s job where the 2016 signees are concerned.

Missouri’s biggest need heading in to NSD: As good as the defense was, the offense was a complete disaster. From quarterback instability to inconsistent receivers to an impotent running game, Missouri’s offense lacked it all -- and the Tigers desperately needed to add some explosiveness to the mix.

There are not many sure things in this class, but running back Natereace Strong should be one of them. The No. 28 overall prospect on ESPN’s JC 50, Strong is the downhill runner that Missouri wants in its backfield and is the highest-rated signee in the class. He and three-star running back Damarea Crockett will immediately jump into the mix in a position group that lost Russell Hansbrough and returns leading rusher Ish Witter.

COLUMBIA, MO. • When Missouri coach Barry Odom unveils his second recruiting class in a few weeks, the casual fan might have trouble distinguishing most of the prospects. A thin pool of in-state recruits pushed Odom’s staff beyond the state border to fill the 2017 class, a strategy Odom planned before the bulk of area prospects committed elsewhere.

Odom continues to assign assistant coaches to recruit regions of the country, but his staff also recruits for their specific position group. That’s led to a more national approach for this year’s class. Odom’s staff has crisscrossed the map from New Mexico to Michigan to New York to land commitments.

“That’s something we’re trying to build on and use,” Odom said last month. Defensive line coach “Brick Haley is one of the best in the country. For him to walk in and show (recruits) who he’s coached and what he’s done, that can help us out. It’s the same with coach (Josh) Heupel coaching the quarterback position. We’re more position specific going forward.”

Three of MU’s 21 commitments have already signed financial aid agreements and will enroll in classes for the winter semester, which starts Tuesday. The other 18 recruits, and any more Mizzou picks up the next three weeks, can begin signing national letters of intent Feb. 1.

The 21 high school and junior college players who have pledged verbal commitments to Mizzou attend schools in 15 different states. That’s more states represented than any other class across the Southeastern Conference. The Tigers have just one commitment from a player who attends high school in Missouri, wide receiver Da’Ron Davis from Lee’s Summit North. Jafar Armstrong, a receiver from the Kansas City area, lives in Missouri but attends high school in Kansas, at Bishop Miege in Shawnee Mission...

5 commits from Texas so far.  One mistake Pinkel made as to abandon Texas and recruit more in GA and FL.  This was done when we came into the SEC.  Huge blunder and now we are paying the price.

I love the fact that we are getting back into Texas.

A-Lister and Missouri commit Cam Taylor overcomes tragedy, serious knee injuries (http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2017/08/a-list_no_15_cam_taylor_missou.html)

Setbacks Cam Taylor has endured in life now define him.

Park Crossing senior quarterback suffered two serious knee injuries and yet still developed into an SEC recruit, committing to Missouri as a safety.

Jahnell Hammonds' son Jaylin and Cam played on the same youth football team, the Montgomery Saints. She was the team's loudest cheerleader and encourager from the stands. Hammonds even ignored doctor's orders to keep quiet after thyroid surgery, said Courtney Britt, Taylor's mother.

"She couldn't do it because she had to cheer for those kids," Britt said.

But her life tragically ended at the age of 30 not long after she and her children had moved away from Montgomery to Virginia. Hammonds died in a car accident on Dec. 15, 2011.

Cam's sister Danielle was a youth football cheerleader with Hammonds' daughter Jayla. It was common for Cam to be over at the Hammonds' residence or for Hammonds' children to be at Cam's house.

"She was a second mom to me, really," Taylor said. "Any time my mom needed something, we would call her and we were over there. I could depend on her for anything.

"She just made everything better. Before our games, I can still hear her scream."

Taylor's emotions are still visible to his teammates. He'll say a prayer before every game and sometimes have "R.I.P. Jahneezy" written somewhere.

"Before the game, my teammates may see me crying," Taylor said...

LSU extended an offer in the direction of 3-star Missouri quarterback commit James Foster on Wednesday.

His recruitment took an interesting turn 24 hours later.

Quote
Foster, the No. 14-ranked dual-threat passer in the Class of 2018, de-committed from Missouri on Thursday. It is safe to assume that his newest offer from the Tigers played a role in his decision.

Foster, a top-12 prospect from the state of Alabama, received a visit from area recruiter and LSU recruiting coordinator Tommie Robinson on Thursday morning. Among the topics discussed was the quarterback depth chart and opportunity for playing time in Baton Rouge.

Foster is expected to make an official visit to LSU later this fall and offered these comments to SEC Country on the state of his Missouri pledge and interest in the Bayou Bengals.

“No comment,” the 3-star quarterback said when asked about the strength of his commitment.

“I can see myself there. This is huge and it’s a blessing. I can see myself playing at LSU,” Foster added.

On paper this kid looks like a beast. I am surprised he wasn't rated higher or recruited aggressively by P5 teams.

The tight end stands 6 foot-8 and 232 pounds, which will make him a huge target in the passing game, a player whom SEC record-setter Drew Lock...

Swinson’s decision brings the total for Missouri’s 2018 recruiting class to 22 commits, ranking 13th in the SEC and 42nd in [our nation].
