Mizzou Links: JUCO OL Malik Cuellar becomes Tigers' 13th 2015 commitment

JUCO tackle Malik Cuellar committed to Missouri last night; he will graduate in December and join the Tigers for spring practice. Also: Markus Golden was snubbed, and women's hoops shot SLU out of the gym on Monday night.


What's On

How about some Malik Cuellar film?

Who's Malik Cuellar? As of last night, he's Missouri's 13th commitment in the 2015 recruiting class. He's a JUCO transfer from City College of San Francisco who graduates in December and will almost immediately join the race to replace Mitch Morse in next year's starting lineup.

I'm easy to please when it comes to film. Almost everybody looks good physically, so really I'm just looking for specific traits and/or flaws. Cuellar's a guy who's looking for a fight, and while this is highlight film, so he of course wins those fights here, he still seems to have a lot of strength and knows how to use his lower body. Works for me!

We'll talk more about recruiting later this week, but depending on attrition, Mizzou will be looking to fill between about six and nine more scholarships between now and Signing Day. Most will be on defense, but Mizzou wanted an immediate-impact offensive lineman, and Cuellar likely fills that need.

Gary Pinkel found himself in a strange place.

The junior Kent State tight end was on his way to a career day in the 1972 Tangerine Bowl in Orlando, Fla., when a knee injury forced him to the locker room shortly before halftime.

As he was getting an evaluation on the trainer’s table, he couldn’t help but notice three observers.

With unblinking stares and wide, unceasing smiles.

"I go into the locker room and Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Pluto — whatever that guy’s name — they’re standing there looking at me like this," Pinkel said. "They’re all just kind of standing there."
