Luther Burden s’engage envers Mizzou – .

After a recruitment that apparently lasted five years, Luther Burden finally made it official on Tuesday night:

America’s No. 1 catcher will be a Missouri Tiger.

Let that sink in for a moment, Tiger fans.

Luther Burden is the top ranked rookie in Missouri’s 2022 class, a recruiting class that currently has five (now six!) Players ranked among the nation’s top 250 players.

He is the first Top 50 ranked player to enlist in Missouri since Terry Beckner, Jr. in the 2015 class (ranked 36th best player in the country).

Burden is the fourth number-one ranked player in his post to enter Missouri in the era of recruiting services, joining Blaine Gabbert, Sheldon Richardson and Dorial Green-Beckham. All four were also the best player in the state of Missouri at the time, but that goes without saying.

Finally, Luther Burden is the fourth 5-star player to commit to Missouri, joining the same list above – Gabbert, Richardson, DGB – and bolstering the 2022 class with the seventh player from Missouri State and the fourth. from St. Louis *

It’s a big deal, guys. While receivers don’t have the same impact as a quarterback or a defensive lineman, they can obviously break a defensive game plan just by stepping onto the pitch. Missouri’s receiving corps in 2022 – full of role players, possession guys, and a few athletic but untested speedsters – can now operate with a legitimate threat operating on the outside, distracting the defense from them and lowering everyone’s “priorities” a notch. Tauskie Dove or Dom Lovett or Mookie Cooper should no longer be the revolutionary weapon in the passing game; now they can do what they do best while Burden orders the security assistance.

Also: Missouri just signed a 5-star wide receiver amid a boring and disappointing season. Want to fall in love with Drinkwitz again? Here is. Want to prove a concept in a season without proof? Look at the recruiting class. This is why Missouri brought Drinkwitz on board and it is paying off.

There will be a lot more talk about this signing over the next year – well, let’s be honest, next year, including the rest of this season. But it’s a treat that Tiger fans don’t often get, so be sure to enjoy every second of one of the country’s most elite athletes enlisting at your favorite school. MIZ.
