Mizzou adds to 2022 class with commitment from elite 4-star in-state safety
Isaac Thompson had five schools to decide between, including three from the SEC. And on Friday, the 4-star safety made it official — he’s heading to Missouri in 2022.
Thompson announced his decision to commit to the Tigers at a ceremony at St. Louis University High School, choosing them over Arkansas, Florida, Michigan and Texas. Thompson is the No. 11 safety in the 2022 class, per the 247Sports Composite rankings, and the No. 4 recruit from Missouri.

Thompson is the fourth commit that Mizzou has landed in the 2022 class, and he’s the third 4-star recruit among them. Thompson is also the third in-state recruit in the group, and he’s the second safety that the Tigers have landed in the class, along with 4-star Xavier Nwankpa from Altoona, Iowa.
That means Missouri now has two of the top 11 safeties in the 2022 class, per the 247Sports Composite rankings.
