COLUMBIA - This year's National Signing Day saw 24 players agree to aid the Missouri Tigers in their quest out of the bottom of the SEC East. While there are no five or four star recruits in this class, many have expressed optimism about Mizzou's newest batch of recruits.

"The relationship that we've got, that's got to be a huge area for us and the emphasis I've placed on it will continue to get kids from all parts of that state and it makes us a better program," Head Coach Barry Odom said in a press conference on Wednesday. 

The player with the most hype around him is the late-signing Taylor Powell. The 6-foot-2-inch quarterback from Fayetteville, Arkansas is listed as a top-20 QB by ESPN. Powell's high school accomplishments were plentiful, such as his 10,413 passing yards which rank 5th all-time in Arkansas history. Powell looks to further a Missouri offense that is on the rise, going from last in points per game in the SEC in 2015 to ranking fifth in that area in 2016. 

Defensive tackle Walter Palmore will be tasked with recharging a Tiger defensive line that gave up over 232 rushing yards per game in 2016, ranking 112th in FBS. Palmore is a 6-foot-4-inch transfer from Eastern Arizona Junior College who is ranked as a 3 star recruit by Rivals.com.
