Oregon State’s loss is Missouri’s gain.
The Tigers picked up a verbal commitment Monday from Baldwin High running back Isaiah Miller, a consensus three-star prospect from northeast Florida near Jacksonville.
Miller, who tipped off the change by updating his Twitter bio to read “MIZZOU RUNNING BACK COMMIT,” confirmed the decision in a social-media post later in the day: “I have chosen to decommit from the Oregon state & flip my commitment to the university of Missouri.”
Never miss a local story.
Miller, who becomes the 19th known commitment in the Tigers’ 2017 recruiting class, also had offers from Rutgers, Syracuse and Washington State among others in addition to the Beavers, according to Rivals.
He visited Columbia two weekends ago and Tennessee last weekend, but had not yet received an offer from the Volunteers.
Miller, a speedy 5-foot-11 and 191-pound back, is ranked as the No. 219 player in Florida by 247Sports, which pegs him as the 85th-best running back in the 2017 recruiting class.
ESPN has Miller, who is Mizzou’s sixth commitment this month, listed as the No. 182 prospect in the Sunshine State.
He’s the second running back to commit to the Tigers in the last week, joining Millbrook High’s Larry Rountree III from Raleigh, N.C.
