Mizzou Links, 4-29-13

Another under-the-radar football commit and another nice weekend on the diamond(s).


Mizzou Football Links

Mizzou scored another football commitment yesterday when Thomas Richard, a receiver for Nashville's Christ Presbyterian Academy, came aboard. He is another under-the-radar guy; Mizzou was his only major offer. That said ... here's his highlight film ... it's a bit difficult to immediately figure out why he didn't have any other major offers.

Granted, he's almost certainly abusing some athletically inferior cornerbacks. Obviously. This film is exactly why highlight film in general is a bit dangerous. Most of these plays seemed to simply be "Tell Thomas to go deep and lob the ball as high as you can" routes. But the guy's got solid size (6'1, 185) and speed that is somewhere between acceptable and strong (hard to say, again, because of the competition); and his body control and strength in the air are fantastic. For all we know, he will be completely athletically overwhelmed at the next level, but for now I'm just going to decide to be excited about this pickup. As I've said before, eventually Mizzou will have to probably beat some peers and land some bigger-named kids. But each of the six commits Mizzou has landed to date has shown impressive athleticism and potential. That's good, too.

Chelsea wins two, Mizzou sacrifices the middle game. This is a strategy for winning series that has little margin for error; but it's worked for two straight weekends.

And like that, Mizzou Baseball's situated back in the conference's Top 12 and in position for an SEC Tourney bid. Nice weekend on the diamond(s)!
