Missouri dips into Peach State for Ross

Senior prospect Tavon Ross (Cochran, Ga./Bleckley County) has committed to play in the SEC for Missouri, according to multiple reports.

Ross, 6-feet, 193-pounds, selected the Tigers over scholarship offers from Charlotte, Middle Tennessee and Western Kentucky.

He plays quarterback for Bleckley but, according to The Telegraph, is expected to line up in Missouri's defensive backfield.

The Tigers now have 20 pledges for 2014. Ross is their first verbal from Georgia.
