Missouri finished with the SEC’s second-to-last-ranked class for 2016, but it got a boost on Tuesday.

Three-star receiver Harry Ballard III, the seventh-ranked player in the state of Missouri, committed to the Tigers. According to Rivals.com, Ballard had issues with academics that stalled his recruitment, but he’s figured it out.

Ballard made the announcement late Tuesday night on Twitter.


The 6-foot-2, 180-pounder out of Florissant, Mo., is rated as the No. 90 receiver in the Class of 2016, according to Rivals.com. He’s the 20th member of the school’s class.
