2022 No. 1 WR Burden picks Missouri after decommitting from Oklahoma
"All these schools have been a great experience for me, and this has been the most difficult decision of my life," Burden said, according to Allen Trieu of 247Sports. "I chose Mizzou because I want to be the first - big recruits in St. Louis go to places like Georgia and Alabama, and I want to stay home and take our talents to Missouri."
Four-star quarterback Sam Horn, who's also committed to the Tigers' 2022 class, reacted to the news on Twitter:
Burden is only the fourth five-star recruit to join Missouri in the modern recruiting era after Sheldon Richardson (2009), Dorial Green-Beckham (2012), and Terry Beckner Jr. (2015), according to The Athletic.
The Tigers have now landed seven recruits ranked on ESPN 300.
