The highly publicized recruiting road of ex-LSU quarterback Lindsey Scott Jr. has ended for now. The former Louisiana Gatorade Player of the Year from Zachary will have three seasons to ply is trade for the Missouri Tigers.

Mizzou coach Barry Odom and his staff were intrigued with the 5-11, 210 pound dual threat and intensified their efforts to secure him after a standout fall in junior college. With Scott’s pledge to Missouri, the Tigers now have 18 in the 2018 recruiting class.

Lindsey Scott Jr.Scott is not the only Louisiana high profile target for the Mizzou staff, which has also ratcheted up the interest in Covington running back Devin Brumfield and Salmen defensive back Eddie Smith.

Brumfield (5-10, 220) was previously a pledge to Texas Tech. He accumulated 6,549 career yards and 80 touchdowns for the Lions. His list has been whittled down to Utah and Missouri, with the Utes perhaps holding the slight edge.

Smith (6-0, 172) has a very high ceiling as a versatile secondary option a corner, safety and nickel. He decommitted from TCU on December 17 after he visited Missouri on December 8. Smith has also visited Tennessee (Jan. 12) and Mississippi State (Jan. 19) with a trip still planned to Alabama (January 26).
