A wide receiver recruit announced his decommitment from Missouri on Wednesday morning. Charles Njoku, the younger brother of Cleveland Browns star David Njoku, revealed his re-opening his recruitment.

Njoku committed to the Tigers in late July, but appears to have changed his mind. The three-star wide receiver recruit form New Jersey committed to Missouri over offers from Purdue, Rutgers and Syracuse.

Miami is seen as the leader in the clubhouse to land Njoku - though he's yet to receive an offer from Mark Richt. He'd be living in his brother's footsteps after David Njoku starred for the Hurricanes before heading to the NFL.

"After a long talk with my family I have come to a decision to de-commit from the University of Missouri. There's not love lost from the university of Missouri. Please respect my decision," Njoku wrote on Twitter.

Njoku is the No. 75 WR recruit in the nation, though a few recruiting experts think he might switch to tight end - again following in the footsteps of his brother.

Stay tuned.
