Tigers in on the nation's elite

Rivals.com is in the midst of rehashing its 2010 football recruiting rankings and the Missouri Tigers are in on a number of the nation's top prospects. Yesterday, Nick Demien rose two spots to the No. 64 ranking in the Rivals100. Today, he is joined by Kony Ealy (185) and James Franklin (140) as Missouri commitments among the nation's elite.

In addition, the Tigers are near the top of the list for two other members of the Rivals.com top250. Liberty receiver Marcus Lucas checks in at No. 113 and four-star Louisiana wideout Curtis Carter is at No. 205.

Carter will visit Missouri officially this weekend with Lucas slated to be in Columbia on December 18th. The Tigers' commit list already includes four four-star prospects. With Carter, Lucas and Tyler Gabbert expected to visit in the next two weeks and rankings still to be determined for five of Missouri's 16 commits, Gary Pinkel looks poised to land his most highly-touted recruiting class in his decade at Missouri.

Rivals.com's re-ranking by position will begin on Thursday. Stay tuned to PowerMizzou.com through National Signing Day in February to see how the Tigers' class ends up.
