Missouri’s #NightAtTheZou can likely be considered a rousing success after two players committed to the Tigers on Saturday. The first came from offensive lineman Larry Borom who made his intentions clear via Twitter on Saturday evening prior to the start of the event.

Borom’s 247Sports page indicates that he only had one offer - from the Tigers - and that the Bloomfield Hills, Michigan native is unranked with regards to his state, position and around the country overall.
Meanwhlie Roderick Ford added to the successful day for Barry Odom’s bunch on Saturday night when he decided to commit to Mizzou. Ford is a native of the state of Texas and much like Borom is unranked via his 247Sports page. Mizzou beat out the likes of Bowling Green, North Texas and Tulane among others to land the Fort Worth native.
The news of Ford’s commitment was first brought to attention by PowerMizzou.com’s Gabe DeArmond.

Mizzou now finds themselves in pretty good position as the attention turns to Chase Hayden whom the Tigers are in on. Hayden, a Tennessee running back, will make his decision on Sunday evening. Arkansas is thought to be the clubhouse leader for the three-star all-purpose back but given certain connections, it wouldn’t be too surprising if Hayden wound up with the Tigers either.
