Texas safety confirms commitment to Mizzou
Missouri had a big Tuesday, drawing three commitments to its 2017 class. It capped a six commitments-in-four-days stretch for the Tigers, going back to Saturday's Night at the Zou.
It turns out, however, there was another commitment in the middle.
Spring (Texas) Dekaney safety Joshuah Bledsoe confirmed to PowerMizzou.com that he committed to Missouri on Monday night. Bledsoe was also in attendance at Missouri's event on Saturday.
The unranked recruit picked Missouri over offers from North Texas, Tulane, Rice, Louisiana-Monroe and UTSA.
Bledsoe is listed at 6-foot, 185-pounds. MaxPreps lists him has compiling 49 tackles, one interception and four pass break-ups as a junior. He told PowerMizzou.com that he could not do a full interview until mid-day Wednesday, but did give permission to release the news about his commitment when asked.
Bledsoe becomes Missouri's 11th known commitment, and the first defensive back to pledge to the Tigers in the 2017 class. After not having a defensive commitment before Tuesday, Missouri now has three on that side of the ball.
