COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Missouri followed a dramatic second-half turnaround that featured a six-game winning streak by signing 16 players Wednesday on the first day of the early signing period.

The class was the third for Tigers coach Barry Odom, and it featured six wide receivers — highlighted by junior-college standout Harry Ballard III. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound wideout chose Missouri over offers from Georgia, Michigan and Alabama, among others, and he was one of nine offensive players signed by the Tigers.

Also included in the class are: LB Chad Bailey, RB Simi Bakare, OL Javon Foster, WR Dominic Gicinto, WR Danny Gray, DE Trajan Jeffcoat, WR Jalen Knox, LB Gerald Nathan, Jr., DE Daniel Parker, OL Mike Ruth, WR Kam Scott, WR Khmari Thompson, DB Jarvis Ware and LB Cameron Wilkins.

After starting the season 1-5, Missouri (7-5) faces Texas (6-6) in the Texas Bowl on Dec. 27.
