The Missouri men’s basketball team secured a significant commitment from center Peyton Marshall, adding to their strong 2024 recruiting class. Marshall, a 7-foot, 300-pound center from Kell High School in Marietta, Georgia, chose Missouri over several other prominent programs, including Auburn, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Mississippi, NC State, Ohio State, and Xavier.
Marshall is considered a four-star recruit by 247Sports and is ranked as the nation’s No. 56 player in the Class of 2024, as well as the No. 9 center and the No. 7 player in Georgia. He had previously committed to Auburn but later decommitted from the program.
In his announcement, Marshall emphasized his trust in Coach Dennis Gates and Coach C.Y. Young and his belief that Missouri is the right place for his development and career. He expressed his commitment to working hard and contributing to the team’s success on the court.
Marshall’s commitment adds to an impressive 2024 recruiting class for Missouri, which also includes fellow four-star recruits Marcus Allen and Antonio “T.O.” Barrett. With these additions, 247Sports ranks Missouri’s 2024 recruiting class as the third-best in the nation, behind only North Carolina and Rutgers. In the Southeastern Conference (SEC), Missouri currently holds the top-ranked recruiting class for 2024.
