On fire: Mizzou picks up 4th commitment in as many days
Eliah Drinkwitz and his staff have something cooking on the recruiting trail. Mizzou picked up its fourth commitment in as many days with a Sunday pledge from Kings Mountain (North Carolina) linebacker Dameon Wilson.
Wilson announced his pledge to the Tigers via Instagram Live. He included a fake-out, initially unzipping his jacket to reveal a North Carolina shirt before removing that to show a Mizzou shirt.
Kentucky and N.C. State were also considered finalists leading up to his announcement. Wilson’s 19 current scholarship offers also include Ole Miss, South Carolina and Michigan.
On the 247Sports Composite, Wilson is listed at 6-1, 210 pounds and rated 3-stars, the No. 20 inside linebacker, No. 27 recruit in North Carolina and No. 441 prospect overall nationally.
With Wilson on board, MU now has verbal commitments from 14 pledges in its 2021 recruiting class. Check out his junior season highlights below, via Hudl:
