Missouri went down into deep SEC territory for its latest commitment on the defensive side. Linebacker Jamal Brooks, a three star player out of Bessemer City High School in Alabama, announced his commitment to the Tigers moments ago on Twitter.
Brooks is the No. 42 class of 2017 player in the state of Alabama.
He chose Mizzou over offers from Kentucky, Louisville, Maryland, Pitt, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest, and numerous 'group of five' programs. Brooks is the eighth player, and first linebacker, in the Tigers' recruiting class.
