It's been a busy time in Columbia lately. #NightAtTheZou resulted in two commits for the Tigers in the Class of 2017 as Larry Borom and Roderick Ford committed to coach Barry Odom as he looks to build off of the success that Gary Pinkel had in his tenure in CoMO.
Over the past few days, Mizzou has been able to land even more commits. Four, to be precise, have verbally committed to Mizzou since Monday.
The first came from Joshuah Bledsoe. Bledsoe is a native of Texas and he confirmed to PowerMizzou.com's Pete Scantlebury that he'd be playing for the Tigers back on Monday night. The Houston native is in the Class of 2017 and is a three-star recruit via 247Sports and had offers from UL Monroe, Southeastern Louisiana, Rice and UTSA. A terrific pipeline has been built over the years between Mizzou and Texas, and Bledsoe is yet another name who will be traveling up to Missouri from The Lone Star State.
Meanwhile on Tuesday the Tigers picked up not one, not two but three commits. The first came from Bessemer, Alabama native Jamal Brooks. Brooks is a linebacker who joins the Class of 2017 as well as it began taking shape on Tuesday night. The news came from PowerMizzou.com on Brooks commitment and despite the fact that he'd had offers from the likes of Vanderbilt, Louisville, Kentucky and others, Brooks decided to choose the Tigers. Brooks is nationally ranked and is a three-star recruit via 247Sports Composite Rankings.
Next came offensive lineman Case Cook. Cook is a native of Carrollton, Georgia and plays center and offensive tackle. He's ranked within the Top 500 nationally and like Brooks is a three-star recruit via 247Sports Composite Rankings. He'd fielded offers from a large crop of power five schools including Georgia Tech, Iowa State, Miami, Mississippi State, NC State, Penn State, Vanderbilt, Auburn and Georgia but decided to trek up to Mizzou instead, giving the Tigers a boost for their offensive line going forward.
The news on Cook's commitment came from T-Georgian Sports' Twitter account.

Last but certainly not least was Aubruey Miller who committed to the Tigers shortly after Cook did. Like Brooks, Miller plays linebacker and finds himself in the Class of 2017 too. A Memphis native, Miller is the 20th-best player in the state of Tennessee per 247Sports and is a three-star recruit via their composite rankings system. Memphis and Tennesssee unsurprisingly were courting his services but in the end, Miller decided that CoMO was the best fit for him.
Miller announced the news on his personal Twitter account.

Although Mizzou added lots to their recruiting class they still have lots of work to do if they want to ascend up the ladder in the SEC. Currently the Tigers sit 13th in 247Sports Composite Team Rankings for the conference with only Vanderbilt behind them.
