Matt Zollers pledged, and then the commitments started to pour in.

The four-star quarterback, ranked as the No. 33 player on 247Sports, was the first to commit to Missouri football’s Class of 2025 on April 4. Following Zollers, MU secured offensive tackle Jack Lange, the top-rated player in Missouri, along with five other recruits before the end of April.

When Lange committed on April 24, Zollers appeared on an On3 Sports livestream to continue recruiting.

“There’s not a specific person that’s on top, but a couple guys,” Zollers said. “Jayvan Boggs, Corey Simms, Donovan Olugbode, Andrew Olesh, Chase Loftin, Jamarion Morrow from the skill positions, off the top of my head.”

It’s been relatively quiet in Columbia for a couple of months, but that’s about to change.

The Tigers will soon have the chance to host several prospects from Zollers and the coaching staff’s combined wishlist before June ends.

Here are eight recruits who will visit Missouri’s campus before the end of the month, showing favorable trends for the Tigers, along with a few who have already visited. All rankings are based on 247Sports’ composite list:
