Class of 2013 quarterback Eddie Printz Jr. has committed to Missouri.

The one-time UCLA pledge, who fell out of the Bruins' plans, will play for Gary Pinkel and the Tigers, according to Pete Scantlebury of

The pro-style quarterback from Lassiter High School (Marietta, GA), who was also pursued by major schools such as USC, Auburn and Arkansas before deciding in January to attend UCLA, had also previously been committed to SMU.

The 6-3, 200-pounder's strengths as a passer are his timing, accuracy and touch, so he should fit well into Pinkel's spread scheme. Printz Jr. also has good mechanics and is lauded for making good decisions with the football.
