Mizzou is still recruiting like they're in the Big XII. They're 20 spots behind fricking Kentucky.
I think Missouri needs to rapidly readjust their recruiting philosophy. They used to rely on good evaluation and a moderate presence (playing several games a year against teams from Texas/Oklahoma) in Texas to pick up the Texas kids others overlooked. That is really no longer an option for them after leaving the Big 12.
They seem to have targeted Georgia as their "replacement Texas" but I'm really not sure that's going to work out for them. They are competing against a boatload of other schools with closer proximity and bigger football names. Rather than targeting Georgia I think they should:
1) work very hard to maintain their state presence by playing regular games in STL and KC and
2) seek out a way to raise their presence in other semi-regional recruiting areas like Memphis and Chicago.
Recruiting Georgia is just not going to work out very well for them IMO
