I could regale you with lies about how defensive end isn't a huge need in this class, and that what the Bearcats really need is defensive tackles. That would be a lie, and a big one at that. Williams was going to be a very good player for the Bearcats, and he still will be a very good player, just for the Missouri Tigers. If you want to feel better about this, and possibly find some fictional high ground in the judgement of the decisions of teenagers there is this.

This loss doesn't tank the class, it just makes defensive end a huge need for 2015 with Jerrell Jordan, Terrell Hartsfield, and Brad Harrah graduating and Silverberry Mouhon possibly taking his talents to the NFL after his Junior season. The last hour really sums up the highs and lows of signing day. Landing Mouhon the Younger and losing Williams to Mizzou.
