Mizzou football lands commitment from Lebanon OL Tristan Wilson
Missouri football picked up a commitment from the top-ranked offensive lineman in the Show-Me State's Class of 2022 on Wednesday.
Lebanon's Tristan Wilson announced his intentions to play in Columbia.
"I'm staying home!!" Wilson wrote in a tweet.
At 6-foot-5, 295 pounds, Wilson is a three-star prospect and is ranked as the 25th-best offensive guard in the country and the No. 18 overall prospect in the state, according to the 247Sports composite.
Missouri has had previous success with players from Lebanon, including Justin Britt and Cannon York.
Wilson landed his first college offer from Missouri State in late October. Since early January, he has earned more than a dozen FBS offers. Those programs include Alabama, Arkansas, Baylor, Virginia, TCU and Miami.
He becomes the seventh player to commit to Missouri in the Class of 2022, which has a heavy in-state flavor. Six Tiger commits hail from Missouri or the Kansas side of the Kansas City metropolitan area.
Missouri's 2022 class is ranked No. 6 in the Southeastern Conference and No. 18 in the country.
According to 247Sports, Missouri offered Wilson on Feb. 1 and was the second SEC school to do so, with Kentucky offering a scholarship Jan. 23.
Wilson is the second offensive lineman and offensive guard to commit to Missouri as part of the 2022 class.
Lee's Summit North's Armand Membou also pledged his services to the Tigers on March 27.
Of Missouri's seven commits in the 2022 class so far, six project to be offensive players, with only St. Louis native Isaac Thompson, a safety, playing on the other side of the ball.
