The good news continues for Missouri.
This week, talented wide receiver Dominique Booth pulled back on his commitment to Tennessee and opened things up. His father was quoted saying that Missouri, Texas A&M and in-state Indiana were now the finalists for his services. Booth is a 6-foot-1, 200-pound wide receiver out of Pike High School in Indianapolis and is rated a four-star prospect by 247Sports.com, though he’s a three-star prospect in the composite rankings. He was one of Tennessee’s top pickups before stepping back from his commitment because of a difference in opinion of when he would begin classes in Knoxville, according to his dad.
Also, uncommitted four-star WR Josh Malone may choose Tennessee Wednesday, which also could have had a lot to do with the change. At any rate …
Now, Mizzou may not be the immediate leader for Booth, but one has to think that the Tigers’ dominance this year and berth in the SEC title game has to be a plus. This is a kid they weren’t even in the running for previously.
A few weeks ago, Booth talked to Saturday Down South about how his senior season was going. He had dealt with nagging foot injuries.
“I have been playing all year with an injury and for awhile I wasn’t able to do what was expected of me,” Booth told SDS. “And it’s like as a player do you tough it out and look bad or do you heal take the criticism of sitting out and come back 100 (percent)?”
Mizzou is also hot on the trail of athlete Raymond Wingo, too. Wingo is the younger brother or former Arkansas RB Ronnie Wingo, but that doesn’t mean he’s a lock to the Razorbacks. The Tigers get a visit soon from the younger Wingo, and then Arkansas and Auburn will also get visits. Wingo runs the 40-yard dash in the 4.3-second range, and he can play several positions.
