COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Missouri football fans eager for an early look at the Tigers' newest recruits can get the scoop directly from coach Gary Pinkel at a Wednesday reception on national signing day.

Pinkel and members of his coaching staff are hosting the first #MizzouMade recruiting reception at 5:30 p.m. at the Hampton Inn & Suites near Memorial Stadium. The reception is free and open to the public.

The event takes place on the day that high school football players sign binding letters of intent with colleges, culminating the annual recruiting process.

Missouri finished the 2013 season with a 12-2 record and a Cotton Bowl win.
