On Tuesday, Missouri added two new recruits to its already deep class of 2014. Thomas Wilson of Buford Georgia and Nate Brown of Suwanee Georgia both committed to play for the Tigers. Scout has both players rated as three star recruits in the Class of 2014, with Nate Brown ranked as the 135th Wide Reciever in the class, and Wilson as the 86th Running Back. These two young men are added to Missouri’s class of 2014, which now inlcudes 22 players, who according to most recruiting services are all three star prospects.
Thomas Wilson is a versatile athlete who can step in and pick offense or defense at Missouri. He was mostly recruited as a running back put could play Safety, Wide Receiver, or Cornerback in Columbia. The 5’11″ 180 pound senior chose Missouri over North Carolina, and didn’t take an official visit to Missouri before committing to the school. He is expected to visit some time soon.
Nate Brown is a 6’3″ 210 pound receiver from North Gwinnett High School in Georgia. He had offers from lots of schools, like Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt, and Illinois. Brown took his official visit last week and committed to the Tigers for 2014. In the future, he could be teaming up with Lawrence Lee, Missouri’s top rated Wide Receiver recruit from Florida to form the future receiving core of the Tigers in a couple of years.
Overall, both these recruits were good depth signings for the Tigers. It illustrates Mizzou’s emphasis on recruiting in “SEC country,” as both these players came from the South. As Missouri moves forward into the future in the SEC, these kind of recruiting pickups will be key in building an SEC championship squad.
