Making #MizzouMade


Mizzou Mag published a pretty cool piece last week about what goes into #MizzouMade. Gary Pinkel's evaluation system is mysterious and successful; we don't know a ton of what goes into it, but he expounded on it a smidge in this piece. Take a look.

An excerpt: "The starting point of Pinkel’s recruiting success is what he calls 'size, strength and speed potential.' By examining a player’s build — arm length, shoulder width, bone thickness — and other less-obvious clues, Mizzou recruits players who can develop into SEC– and even NFL-caliber athletes. Cases in point: offensive linemen Justin Britt, BGS ’13, of the Seattle Seahawks, and Mitch Morse, BS ’14, of the Kansas City Chiefs."
