Brett Rau highlights.
Rau has evidently joined the Missouri basketball team as a preferred walk-on.
I am excited to announce that I will be attending Mizzou next year to continue my education and basketball career! pic.twitter.com/MipCgCPcAk— Brett Rau (@brettrau3) June 22, 2016

And in football recruiting...
There's a social media movement to get Dyllan Conway some scholarship offers. That's ... unique.
Here's some footage of him playing WR/DB. He's from Westminster Christian Academy.
In football news...
Don’t overlook the Blue Raiders, a team that returns important pieces from an explosive offense, led by the nation’s most prolific freshman quarterback from 2015, lefty Brent Stockstill, the head coach’s son. Stockstill led all freshman QBs in touchdown passes (30), attempts (490), completions (327), completion percentage (66.7), passing yards (4,005), yards per attempt (8.2) and passer rating (151.9). How good were the Blue Raiders offensively? They averaged more points than West Virginia, LSU, USC and UCLA.
And now Stockstill adds an SEC-seasoned running back in Ole Miss transfer I’Tavius Mathers, who if you remember had a 45-yard touchdown run against Mizzou in 2013 when he was Ole Miss’ leading rusher. Stockstill should also benefit from the staff’s addition of Franklin, who comes from Cal where he worked with Jared Goff, the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft to those vagabonds in Los Angeles.
Indeed, MTSU is far more of a threat than either of the other two non-conference home opponents. (I wrote about Rick Stockstill's team here.) That the Blue Raiders are actually decent makes me even more frustrated that they are this year's Homecoming opponent. Not only are they not a conference rival, but they're a team that can actually beat you if you aren't playing very well.
