This is Missouri’s 13th commitment of the 2020 class.
With February 5th’s National Signing Day right around the corner, Eli Drinkwitz and the coaching staff received some positive news on the recruiting trail tonight – with a surprise commitment on the defensive side.
Eli Drinkwitz tweeted out a good sign this afternoon that a commitment could be coming in the near future.
Turns out it was JUCO defensive lineman Benjamin Key. Key was originally committed to Mississippi State back on December 18th, but with the Bulldogs’ coaching change – he has decided to commit to Missouri.
