Mizzou adds tackle Xavier Delgado on National Signing Eve

The day before National Signing Day doesn’t seem like a prime time for SEC commitments, but think again: Missouri took advantage Tuesday to add a new piece to its offensive line.

Three-star offensive tackle Xavier Delgado committed to Missouri Tuesday morning, announcing his decision on Twitter:

Delgado, a 6-5, 300-pound tackle from Glendale (Ariz.) Deer Valley, is ranked as one of the top 20 prospects in Arizona. He selected the Tigers ahead of Power Five offers from Arizona, Arizona State and Iowa State.

Delgado’s addition means that the Tigers are nearly full for their 2018 class. Missouri already has 20 players signed or enrolled, and with five other players committed but not yet signed, the Tigers will reach their NCAA-mandated limit of 25 if all of those players sign Wednesday.
