Missouri lost a 2014 offensive line recruit Monday when Zach Hudson, a three-star recruit from Tampa, Fla., announced that he was switching his commitment from the Tigers to the University of South Florida.

Hudson, a tackle prospect who committed to Missouri in June, announced the decision on Twitter.

Hudson’s flip leaves the Tigers with 25 commitments in the 2014 class, which can’t officially sign national letters of intent on Feb. 5.

According to, Missouri’s group of commits now includes five offensive linemen headlined by DeSmet senior Andy Bauer (6-6, 304), a four-star recruit from St. Louis who decommitted from Mississippi and gave the Tigers his pledge in early November.

Two Kansas City products — Lee’s Summit West three-star Kevin Pendleton (6-4, 329) and Blue Valley West two-star Michael Fairchild (6-6, 262) — have also committed to Missouri.

Finally, the Tigers also expect to sign Paul Adams (6-6, 270), a three-star from Nashville, Tenn., and Sam Bailey (6-5, 245), a two-star from Lamar, Mo.
