The Missouri Tigers added to their 2019 recruiting class on Thursday with an offensive lineman out of Arlington, Texas. Bowie HS standout Thalen Robinson, a tackle, committed to Barry Odom’s Tigers. Thalen made the announcement on his Twitter account.
Robinson is the latest in a long line of recruits from Texas to commit to Mizzou. As of now, though, he’s just one of two Texans to commit to the program. Anthony Watkins, a three-star safety from nearby Fort Worth, is the other Texas-born recruit to have committed to the Tigers thus far. He is the second offensive tackle to join the class, standing along side St. Louis’ Jack Buford, a fellow 3-star out of Lutheran North.
Standing 6-foot-6, 315 lbs., Robinson is listed as a three-star recruit as of this juncture. He ranks 112th at his position and 167th in the football-rich state of Texas. Prior to committing, he held offers from the likes of the Texas State Bobcats, Tulane Green Wave, Virginia Cavaliers and Washington State Cougars.
Mizzou’s recruiting class remains 71st in the country and 14th in the SEC after Thalen Robinson’s commitment.
