Missouri football has been red hot over the past week. In that time-frame, the Tigers landed four recruits who figure to help them in the near future. They continue to climb in the 2025 recruiting rankings, and are now a consensus top-15 program across all media platforms.

A large part in this entire process has been new NIL regulations, along with Coach Drinkwitz ability to recruit high level players. Missouri is an attractive brand of football now, which appeals to every recruit.

Missouri has been bringing in some serious talent recently. Let's take a look at the four high school recruits in the 2025 class who committed to Missouri over the past week.

1. Jayvan Boggs

Boggs is where all the momentum started, announcing his commitment to Missouri last Thursday. Boggs posses incredible talent on the outside. Showcasing this last season for Cocoa High School, where he tallied 86 receptions, 1,504 receiving yards, and 24 touchdowns. The four-star wide-out decommitted from Ohio State in March before re-opening his recruitment. His final decision came down to Missouri, UCF, USC, and Georgia. Boggs is a great addition to this class, he is someone who has experience playing in big games, and more importantly, winning them. The Cocoa High School product is a back to back state champion in Florida. Boggs has had an impact on winning teams, which should help him adjust well at Missouri next season. Boggs is a massive pickup for Eliah Drinkwitz and the Missouri Tigers.

2. Donovan Olugbode

Next came the commitment of another four-star receiver, but this time from Naperville, Illinois. Olugbode plays his High School football for IMG Academy, in Bradenton, Florida. The talented receiver raked in over 30 offers before narrowing it down to Missouri, Oregon, USC, and Washington. The 6'1, 200-pound receiver has always been an extremely hard worker. Olugbode has amazing hands, and an elusive first step, making him a clear cut top-100 recruit. When Olugbode was asked why he chose Missouri, he responded with "Definitely Matt Zollers and what he can do with the football, and Kirby Moore and his offense, all of that combined, you can't go wrong with it."

3. Lamont Rogers

Just a day later, Lamont Rogers hopped on the train of top-100 recruits committing to Missouri. Rogers is considered a top-ten offensive lineman, as well as top-ten recruit from Texas in the 2025 recruiting class. Eliah Drinkwitz had to beat out some incredibly tough competition to win over Rogers. His final four schools were Missouri, Texas A&M, Texas, and Oklahoma. Lewis is a 6-foot-8, 305-pound prospect, who moves exceptionally well for his size. When Lewis was asked about his commitment to Missouri, he said "(Jones) has a really good personality and a style I can definitely vibe with." This was in reference to Missouri's offensive line coach, Brandon Jones, who continues to emerge as one of Missouri's best recruiters.

4. Keiton Jones

Rounding out this elite group of talent was Keiton Jones, a three-star interior offensive lineman from Coffeyville, Kansas. Jones is not as highly ranked as the others, but that shouldn't overlook his elite talent. The 6-foot-4, 315 pounder, has looked dominant in all of his high school film. He is simply just bigger and quicker than all of his opponents. Missouri stole Jones away from multiple foes, in both Arkansas and Kansas. When the highly touted recruit was asked about his decision, he said "something about Missouri felt different. The people are great and they were real. They are an SEC school, they have established themselves as a top program and I have great relationships with the coaches.” Jones also alluded to his phenomenal relationship with Missouri's OL coach, Brandon Jones, as well. “Coach Jones focused on me, he prioritized me and he wanted me.”

Missouri will look to bolster their 2025 recruiting class in the coming days. It should be another fun week for fans of the Tigers, as we continue rapidly approaching football season.
