  • PowerMizzou: Paul adding offers, taking visits (this is an article about Miguel Paul's younger brother, a Florida linebacker prospect. It is interesting for a quote at the bottom. This could obviously just be poor word choice from Miguel's brother ... or it could be a sign that we have a leader in the "Who May Transfer?" race.  We'll see soon enough.)
    As for making a decision, he is in no rush and is taking lessons learned from his brother - Missouri point guard Miguel Paul - and applying them to his recruitment.

    "I am taking my time right now," Paul said. "My brother plays basketball in college. He sped up the process and committed early, I am not trying to make the same mistakes he made. I am going to sit down and talk things out with my parents, take things slow, and enjoy the process."

  • The Trib: MU softball ace Thomas likely out for season

    "When you have a pitcher of her caliber, you only get her for four years," Earleywine said. "You’d hate for her to miss 15, 20 games."

    Per NCAA rules, Thomas would be eligible for a medical redshirt because she has not appeared in more than 30 percent of her team’s originally scheduled games or pitched in a game during the second half of Missouri’s season. Thomas, appearing for the 14th time, last pitched in MU’s 25th game March 21 in a complete-game victory over Northwestern. The Tigers (23-4) are scheduled to play at least 55 games.

    Earleywine said the stress fracture, which is commonly associated with overuse, is likely a combination of Thomas’ increased weight training and her intense desire to become a more complete pitcher. Thomas worked daily over the summer to add a riseball and a changeup to her 70-plus mile per hour dropball, evolving into a pitcher Earleywine believes will be among the best in the history of college softball.

    MUtigers.com: Ballingall Wins UALR/First Tee Classic

    Freshman Stuart Ballingall took medalist honors at the UALR/First Tee Classic in Little Rock Ark. Ballingall followed rounds of 69 and 63 on Monday with a final round 69 to finish with a 54-hole score of 201.

    The Tigers carded a final round 301 to finish with a three-round score of 873, finishing in second place in the team standings. They were eight shots behind the tournament winner Southeastern Louisiana and one shot ahead of third-place Central Arkansas.

    Mizzou has finished in the top two in all four of its spring tournaments.

    Mizzou's got a really young, really interesting team moving forward.
