In May, Tigers head coach Gary Pinkel told the Post-Dispatch that Beckner had “work to do” to ensure he would be eligible for the 2015 season.
The 6'4," 298-pound defensive tackle was ranked as the No. 36 recruit in the country and the No. 5 at his position by Rivals. ESPN ranked him as the No. 2 overall recruit.
Beckner's father told the Post Dispatch that his son will move to Columbia on Friday to begin classes at Missouri.
Missouri's 2015 recruiting class was ranked No. 27 in the nation by Rivals. The Tigers went 11–3 (7–1 SEC) last season.
