Missouri had to sweat it out, but they were able to regain their biggest commitment. Evan Boehm (Lee's Summit, Mo./West), who had committed to the in-state Tigers over the summer but decided to open things back up this fall, has announced that he is back on board with Mizzou.
Boehm, the No. 1 rated guard in the 2012 class, is once again is a big pick-up for Missouri. The ESPNU 150 prospect is one of the most versatile lineman in this class. He projects to guard, but has experience at center and, if needed in a pinch, could step in and play tackle and be productive. So he not only gives you a quality player at one position, but can also offer good depth to your line.
A coach's son, he plays the game well exhibiting good technique for a prospect at his level as both a run and pass blocker. He displays good flexibility, balance, and agility and is able to come off the ball and quickly get into defenders and roll his hips and deliver a pop and knock them back. He also does a nice job of being able to get up to that second level and locate and get a hat on defenders on the move. He also displays good toughness and aggressiveness as a blocker.
We think the Under Armour All-American is once again an excellent pick-up for Mizzou as he addresses a need, is again a key in-state keep, and most importantly is a very good prospect.
