Missouri's recruiting class doubles in size in recent days: Latest pledge comes from Tennessee OL Ray Curry Jr.
Missouri’s recent hot streak on the recruiting trail has extended to the month of June as the Tigers just picked up a new commitment from Tennessee native Ray Curry Jr.
This latest commitment means Missouri’s 2020 recruiting class doubled in size in less than two weeks. It wasn’t that long ago the Tigers held only three commitments in the program’s latest recruiting class but now thanks to 6-foot-5, 288-pound Memphis native Curry, the Tigers now hold six commitments.
Rated as a three-star prospect, Curry is listed as the No. 65 offensive tackle and No. 26 overall prospect from the state of Tennessee by 247Sports Composite Rankings. Curry commits to Mizzou over scholarship offers from Alabama, Auburn, Arkansas, Ole Miss and Mississippi State, among others.
He announced his decision on Monday with the following message:
“First and foremost it is a must that I give all glory to God because none of this would have been possible without him. On April 26, 2015, I humbly received my first offer and have been blessed to receive a total of 27 thus far. This is a true testament to God and to the many coaches who saw potential in me. I would like to give thanks to all the people I have come in contact with through this game of football from the age of seven to the age of 17, that have had a heavy influence and a major role in shaping me into the man I am today. I want to give thank to all of the university that had a major interest in me. Lastly, a special thank to my family, friends and teammates for pushing me and never letting up on me… What that being said I would like to announce that I have committed to the University of Missouri! Thank you, friends and family, for the support and to the entire Missouri coaching staff… I am looking forward to seeing you all soon!”
Of Missouri’s six commitments in the 2020 recruiting cycle, three of them come from offensive line prospects.
