The Missouri Tigers have secured their fifth commitment of the month. Their aggressive recruiting efforts have caught the attention of the college football world in June, culminating in three-star cornerback Mark Manfred committing to the team on Sunday.

“1000 percent committed,” Manfred announced on X (formerly known as Twitter) on Sunday evening.

Manfred, a 6-foot-2, 175-pounder from Sprayberry High School in Marietta, Georgia, is ranked as the No. 36 cornerback and No. 38 recruit in the state according to 247 Sports.

He becomes the 12th commitment for Missouri’s 2025 class, joining running back Jamarion Morrow, wide receiver Shaun Terry, quarterback Matt Zollers, offensive tackle Jack Lange, edge rusher Daeden Hopkins, linebacker Dante McClellan, interior offensive lineman Henry Fenuku, defensive lineman Jason Dowell, safety Dyllon Williams, linebacker Kason King, and edge rusher Joshua Lewis.

Manfred’s commitment is the fifth for Missouri in June, following Fenuku on June 10, Williams on June 11, Morrow on June 14, and Terry on June 20.

This new addition has boosted Missouri’s 2025 class ranking on 247Sports from No. 32 to No. 23, overtaking Miami, and placing them at No. 8 in the SEC.

In his junior year, Manfred recorded 57 tackles, five tackles for loss, an interception, and a forced fumble. As a receiver, he made 14 receptions for 178 yards and three touchdowns. On special teams, he averaged 28.8 yards on 13 kickoff returns, including two touchdowns, and 18.1 yards on 11 punt returns.

Recruiting news is expected to continue as many prospects visited Columbia this weekend, including wide receivers Corey Simms (three-star), Donavan Olugbode (four-star), and Jayvan Boggs (three-star).
