You know if a kicker is receiving a three-star rating, he's got a pretty high ceiling.

Quick delivery on punts? Check. Hang time? Check. Power? Check.

It had been a while since Mizzou had brought a kicker/punter to Columbia on scholarship. You never know how or if high school kicking studs will thrive in big stadiums in front of big crowds, and Gary Pinkel and his staff have preferred to sculpt and mold walk-ons into steady legs instead of spending a scholarship on someone from the start. That they made an exception for Corey Fatony says quite a bit about his potential. So does his highlight film.
