Missouri has arguably the most momentum in college football over the past week. The 2025 recruiting class continues to rise in the ranks. This most recent jump comes following the commitment of four-star defensive back, Charles Bass.

The East St. Louis product chose Missouri over the likes of Illinois, Kansas State, and Arkansas. He becomes the 17th commit for Missouri's 2025 recruiting class. The 6-foot-1 prospect is ranked 310th nationally, according to 247Sports Composite. However, Rivals actually has the four-star prospect ranked 97th nationally, significantly higher than other recruiting website.

In his junior year at East St. Louis, Bass helped lead his squad to the 2023 6A Championship game. He tallied 85 tackles last season, adding three take-aways, while playing in 13 games.

Bass becomes Missouri's third defensive back commit in the 2025 class. He joins Dyllon Williams and Mark Manfred, who both committed to Missouri in June. Bass is the highest ranked of the three, according to Rivals, coming in with a 5.9 rating.

The recruiting circuit figures to slow down for Missouri in the coming weeks. But, there are still some top prospects out there. If Missouri could land either Iose Epenesa (DL), or Andrew Babalola (OT) things could get crazy. Unfortunately, for the time being, both seem to be considered "long shots" for Missouri.

Nonetheless, Missouri stays red hot right now, and continue to take the college football world by storm. The program trajectory continues going in one direction, up.
