  03/25/21 - *Nick BoltonJr/2021, Missouri, 5-11, 237 (DS#2 ILB) + More +

  Of the nine professional hopefuls to compete in the Mizzou Pro Day on Monday, six were on coach Eli Drinkwitz's Missouri football roster this past season. Two others - wide receivers Johnathon Johnson and Jonathan Nance - last played for Missouri in 2019. Joining the eight Tiger alums was Zach Davidson, a former Division II All-American tight end at Central Missouri. Representatives from 29 of the 32 NFL teams converged at the Devine Pavilion to watch on-field drills and the bench press. They made the walk into the Mizzou Athletics Training Complex for other combine-like exercises. Many scouts came to Columbia to get an up-close look at former Missouri linebacker Nick Bolton, a projected first- or second-round NFL Draft selection. Bolton told reporters Monday he's had Zoom meetings with about 75% of league teams.

"I feel like I can play in the NFL and be a high-caliber player," Bolton said. "So it's about proving myself right every day, believing in myself and trying to get myself in the best situation possible." Bolton's on-field workout was led by Pittsburgh Steelers inside linebackers coach Jerry Olsavsky, who spent several minutes talking with Bolton's family and his agent, Tommy Condon. The Steelers choose at No. 24 and 55 in the draft, set for April 29 to May 1. Bolton's metrics from pro day included 40-yard dash times of 4.59 and 4.60 seconds, as well as 24 reps on the 225-pound bench press. - Columbia Daily Tribune

  Missouri athletics announced this week its intention to welcome full-capacity crowds to Faurot Field for football games this coming fall, returning to a traditional game day atmosphere after a 2020 season altered by the coronavirus pandemic. Saturday's spring game will feel more like 2020 than 2021, however. Second-year coach Eli Drinkwitz and Missouri are set to host their annual spring game at 1 p.m. Saturday, going through a mix of skills, drills and scrimmage. The event will be held with a reduced fan capacity of 6,000, compared to the 62,621 seats Missouri hopes to have available starting with its season opener against Central Michigan on Sept. 4. - Columbia Daily Tribune

  The football team has updated its online roster to reflect the current team. Two position changes from the season finale are now official: Former quarterback Shawn Robinson is now listed as a safety, while wide receiver Kris Abrams-Draine is now a cornerback. Eleven of last year's seniors are back for another year, using the extra year of eligibility granted by the NCAA: defensive linemen Akial Byers, Chris Turner, Markell Utsey and Kobie Whiteside, linebacker Jamal Brooks, safety Mason Pack, running back Dawson Downing, center Mike Maietti, wide receivers KeKe Chism and Micah Wilson and punter Grant McKinniss. The only 2020 scholarship seniors who elected not to return were running back Larry Rountree III, receiver Damon Hazelton, safeties Tyree Gillespie and Joshuah Bledsoe and defensive end Sci Martin. - Post-Dispatch

  01/19/21 - Blaze AlldredgerSr/2022, Missouri, 6-2, 220 (DS#16 OLB) + More +

  Missouri football added to its 2021 roster through the transfer portal Monday. The Tigers picked up a commitment from Rice linebacker Blaze Alldredge, who recorded 214 tackles, 29 tackles for loss, six sacks, two interceptions and a forced fumble in 30 career games with the Owls. Alldredge entered the transfer portal Saturday and should have two years of eligibility remaining per NCAA relief despite being a graduate transfer. The Celebration, Florida, native was a first-team All-Conference USA honoree each of the past two seasons. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Alldredge was a team captain in 2020. The Tigers had a major hole in the middle of their defense after Nick Bolton declared for the 2021 NFL Draft. - Columbia Daily Tribune

  01/07/21 - Mookie CooperFr/2024, Missouri, 5-09, 195 (DS#999 WR) + More +

  Eli Drinkwitz continues to add playmakers to his Missouri offense, most recently landing a familiar name from the NCAA transfer portal. Former Ohio State wide receiver Mookie Cooper, a 2020 four-star recruit from Trinity Catholic High School in St. Louis, committed to join the Tigers, Cooper announced Tuesday on social media. Cooper was rated the No. 2 prospect in Missouri in the 2020 recruiting class by Rivals.com when he signed with the Buckeyes and the nation's 58th-ranked player overall. Cooper barely gave Mizzou much consideration at the time and enrolled early at Ohio State last January. One of four highly touted receivers in the Buckeyes' freshman class, Cooper didn't see the field this season and entered the transfer portal last month. - Post-Dispatch

  2020 ALL-SEC FIRST TEAM (COACHES): LB Nick Bolton, Missouri,...Bolton, a Butkus Award finalist and Jason Witten Man of the Year semifinalist, earned first-team honors for the second-straight season. He becomes the first Tiger since Michael Egnew (TE, 2010-11) to earn back-to-back AP all-conference first-team honors and the first defensive player to do so since Sean Weatherspoon (LB, 2008-09). Bolton continues to impress on the field week-in and week-out, as his 67 solo tackles lead the conference while his 95 total tackles rank fifth. He also ranks among the SEC's Top-10 in tackles per game (9.5, seventh) and tackles-for-loss (8.0, 10th). - Missouri Football

  2020 ALL-SEC FIRST TEAM (COACHES): DL Trajan Jeffcoat, Missouri,...Jeffcoat earned first-team honors after a breakout season on the Tiger defensive line where he has produced 6.0 sacks, 18 tackles, seven QB hurries and one forced fumble. Jeffcoat's selection gives Mizzou defensive linemen back-to-back AP first-team honors after Jordan Elliott earned the distinction in 2019. Jeffcoat's 6.0 sacks rank second in the SEC and are the most by a Tiger defensive end since Charles Harris recorded 9.0 in 2016. He has produced a sack in six of Mizzou's 10 games this season, including one against Arkansas (Dec. 5), where he had a career-high five tackles. He also forced a fumble in Mizzou's win over Vanderbilt (Nov. 28). - Missouri Football

  2020 SEC ALL-FRESHMAN TEAM (COACHES): PK Harrison Mevis, Missouri,...Mevis earns all-freshman team honors after a highly impressive debut campaign in the Black & Gold. He was successful on 17-of-20 field goals for the Tigers and a perfect 28-of-28 on PATs. Mevis has been lethal from deep, as he has connected on 3-of-4 kicks from 50+ yards and is one of just four Tigers in program history to make three or more kicks of 50+ yards, joining Tom Whelihan (6, 1984-87), Jeff Jacke (4, 1988-92) and Tucker McCann (3, 2016-19).

His 52-yard field goal vs. LSU (Oct. 10) was the longest by a Mizzou freshman in program history. Mevis matched a school record for a kicker with five field goals against Arkansas (Dec. 5), the most by any kicker nationally this season, and reset the school's record of scoring by a kicker with 20 of Mizzou's 50 points in a 50-48 win over the Razorbacks. Included in those five field goals was a walk-off, game-winning 32-yarder to send Mizzou to its fifth straight win over Arkansas and netted Mevis SEC Special Teams Player of the Week honors. - Missouri Football

  2020 SEC ALL-FRESHMAN TEAM (COACHES): QB Connor Bazelak, Missouri,...In his first game as lead signal caller, Bazelak led the Tigers to a 45-41 win over defending national champion LSU (Oct. 10) as he completed 29-of-34 passes for 406 yards and four TDs, earning SEC Freshman of the Week honors. It marked the first of three freshman weekly honors for Bazelak, who also earned the honor against Vanderbilt (Nov. 28) after going 30-of-37 for 318 yards and Arkansas (Dec. 5) after throwing 32-of-49 for 380 yards. Bazelak's season mark of 2,366 yards ranks fourth in the league, while his completion percentage (67.3) and QB rating (132.05) rank sixth. All three marks rank first among SEC freshmen signal callers. - Missouri Football

  2020 ALL-SEC SECOND TEAM (COACHES): RB Larry Rountree, Missouri,...Rountree earned all-conference honors for the first time in his storied career as he has produced 972 rushing yards on 209 attempts with 14 TDs in his senior campaign to become the first Tiger running back to earn all-conference honors since Henry Josey in 2011. His 14 rushing TDs rank third in the SEC and seventh nationally, while his 972 rushing yards rank fourth in the SEC and 13th nationally. The Tiger tailback will go down as one of the most prolific rushers in school history, as he currently ranks second in career rushing yards (3,720), rushing TDs (40) and 100-yard games (14). - Missouri Football

  The first departure from Ohio State football's roster in 2020 comes from the touted group of freshman receivers. Mookie Cooper entered his name in the transfer portal, per 247 Sports' Chris Hummer. The four-star prospect was ranked No. 93 in the national composite for the 2020 class. Cooper, a St. Louis native, did not play as a freshman. That was not unexpected because he did not play during his senior year of high school due to an eligibility/transfer issue. He will have four years of eligibility at whatever program he joins. - Cleveland Plain Dealer

  2020 SEC CO-FRESHMAN OF THE YEAR (COACHES): Connor Bazelak, Missouri,...With his top freshman nod, Bazelak becomes the first Tiger to earn offensive Freshman of the Year honors since Jeremy Maclin in 2007. Bazelak has shined since being inserted into the starting quarterback role for the Tigers in week three, as he has earned five wins in eight starts as Mizzou's field general.

In his first game as lead signal caller, Bazelak led the Tigers to a 45-41 win over defending national champion LSU (Oct. 10) as he completed 29-of-34 passes for 406 yards and four TDs, earning SEC Freshman of the Week honors. It marked the first of three freshman weekly honors for Bazelak, who also earned the honor against Vanderbilt (Nov. 28) after going 30-of-37 for 318 yards and Arkansas (Dec. 5) after throwing 32-of-49 for 380 yards.
