Mizzou lands another blue-chip Kansas City commit

Mizzou lands another blue-chip Kansas City commit

The #MOmentum is real, folks! Blue-chip defensive end Daniel Parker Jr. wasn’t the only Kansas City prospect who committed to Missouri’s football team on Thursday. The Tigers received word via Twitter of another local’s decision to spend his Saturday’s at Faurot Field. Five-star Social Media Coordinator Ben Schwenker declared his intention to repurchase season tickets for Mizzou Football. #Blessed pic.twitter.com/KXpB2ASWHB— Benjamin Schwenker (@benschwenker) July 27, 2017 The full text: First off I want to thank the man above for blessing me and my wife with the means to...

The people of Montgomery (Ala.) have noticed that Mizzou wants all of their recruits

Here are today’s Mizzou Links. Back when Montgomery (Ala.) quarterback James Foster II committed to Missouri in mid-April, he said something that might end up as one of the primary drivers of the Tigers’ 2018 recruiting class: Foster also grew up a Crimson Tide fan and received an Alabama offer recently, but according to an interview earlier this year, he said, “I’m not huge on staying in-state. I can go anywhere. I know a lot of kids in this state dream about offers from Auburn or Alabama, but I’m not huge on that.” In the months that have followed, he’s attempted to help...

Missouri is on the board in-state: Daniel Parker Jr. commits to the Tigers again

Seven days, nine commits. This one’s big. Recruiting is a long game. Almost exactly one year ago, Blue Springs defensive end Daniel Parker Jr. became Missouri’s first 2018 commitment. A year later, after a decommit and an up-and-down recruitment, Parker reserved his spot for a second time, committing to the Tigers on Thursday.

Missouri’s 2007 season nearly derailed from the start, but the Tigers had Pig Brown

Missouri’s 2007 season nearly derailed from the start, but the Tigers had Pig Brown

Remembering the time Mizzou almost lost to Illinois because of bad math. At 7 pm CT on Missouri’s SEC Network Takeover day this Saturday, Mizzou fans will get to rewatch the Tigers’ first win of 2007. Make sure to do your breathing exercises before then. It’s staggering to think about how close 2007 came to, well, not being 2007 for Missouri. The 11-1 start, the top-five finish, the trip to No. 1, the whole “25 minutes from the national title game” thing ... it all could have vanished on the season’s opening Saturday. Sure, the Tigers would have been good that year regardless....

How large will Missouri’s 2018 football recruiting class be?

How large will Missouri’s 2018 football recruiting class be?

The Tigers’ 2018 commit list doubled over the weekend. Could it double yet again by the end of the season? Missouri is sitting at 10 pledges for the 2018 recruiting cycle, having picked up five from this past weekend’s Night at the Zou recruiting event. By my math, that means the Tigers have committed to 79 scholarships after this year, meaning they would technically only have room for six more commitments. Obviously that number is fluid given decommitments, transfers, and the general attrition that occurs at all schools. In his first two years, Barry Odom signed 22 and 26 recruits,...

Missouri’s path in the AdvoCare Invitational could include St. John’s, West Virginia

It appears the bracket is set. #BeatLongBeachState It appears the bracket for the AdvoCare Invitational might be set. The 2017 Advocare Invitational bracket is as follows, sources told FanRag Sports on Monday: * West Virginia vs. Marist * Nebraska vs. UCF * St. John’s vs. Oregon State * Missouri vs. Long Beach State If true, Missouri would play Dan Monson’s Long Beach State (No. 225 in KenPom last year) in the first round, and assuming a win* the Tigers would play either St. John’s (No. 99) or Oregon State (No. 264) in the semis and, with a win, probably either WVU (No. 7), UCF (No....

4-star Texas linebacker Chad Bailey commits to Missouri over Ole Miss, Colorado

4-star Texas linebacker Chad Bailey commits to Missouri over Ole Miss, Colorado

Missouri had five 2018 commitments heading into the weekend. The Tigers have landed four this weekend. Missouri’s linebacking corps in 2017 will consist of two seniors, six juniors, and just three underclassmen. Judging by the number of offers sent out, then, it appeared the linebacker position would be a position of focus in the 2018 class. So far, so good: the Tigers just landed their ninth commitment of 2018, and their second linebacker: four-star Missouri City, Tex., product Chad Bailey.

3-star Alabama athlete Cam Taylor commits to Missouri

#BAMAtotheZOU, indeed. When the 2018 recruiting cycle began in earnest last February, the primary story line for Mizzou was the wooing of the so-called Tiger 10 — how many of them the Tigers could land would define how successful the class was overall. That’s still the case to some degree, though optimistic guesses have shifted from “They could get six of 10, I think, maybe even seven,” to “They still have a pretty good shot at three or four.” But a subplot has developed as well, and it could create a pretty interesting class in its own right: #BAMAtotheZOU.

Missouri is in the SEC because Gary Pinkel nailed the “when”

Missouri is in the SEC because Gary Pinkel nailed the “when”

The Tigers chose a very good time to get their act together on the gridiron. Maybe the most maddening aspect of both coaching and fandom is that the ‘when’ matters, and you have very little control over it. You don’t know when your state is going to produce a certain amazing crop of blue-chippers, and you don’t know when conference realignment is going to pop up, but you have to hope you’re at your best when it does. If you’re an Alabama football or Kentucky basketball, that doesn’t really matter. You’ve got history on your side, and you’re always just a single good hire...

Per PowerMizzou: Texas linebacker Cameron Wilkins commits to Missouri

The Tigers pick up a much-needed linebacker commitment from one of the first guys they offered at the position. Linebacker Cameron Wilkins has recorded 24 tackles for loss in the last two seasons for Del Valle (Tex.) High School and picked up an early offer from Missouri months ago. In early July, he told Rivals.com that he would soon be deciding between the Tigers and nearby Texas A&M. An offer from the Aggies never materialized, it appears, and on Friday, in the run-up to Night at the Zou, Wilkins became Mizzou’s sixth commitment. 3 star LB Cameron Wilkins committed to #Mizzou early...
