It only takes a single good recruiting weekend to get the swagger going a little bit. First, here’s Mizzou defensive coordinator DeMontie Cross smirking on a boat:

And here are some reaction links from Mizzou’s big weekend:
- Bailey talked to PowerMizzou about why he committed. PM also broke down Cameron Wilkins’ film, and Gabe Dearmond talked to TJ Moe and company about the weekend on The Hardline.
- 3-star Indiana defensive end Madison Norris talked to Rivals.com about last weekend’s Columbia visit, while Rivals’ Josh Helmholdt broke down the Vincent Gray commitment, and Rivals’ Chad Simmons broke down Cameron Taylor.
- I talked about recruiting, among other things, in my weekly KTGR appearance yesterday as well.
- Meanwhile, Florida receiver Shocky Jacque-Louis, who has already committed to and decommitted from Kentucky in this cycle, put Mizzou in his new top five.

- Poor scheduling, really, but Night at the Zou last Friday also coincided with Mizzou Night at Kauffman Stadium.
Loved seeing all the Black & Gold at #Mizzou Night with the @Royals last Friday! #MIZ pic.twitter.com/DbjOTFFJcL— Mizzou Athletics (@MizzouAthletics) July 24, 2017

- Robin Pingeton just made a late addition to her 2017-18 Mizzou Women’s Hoops squad: 6’1 small forward Emmanuelle Tahane of France. She has played on various U16, U17, and U18 French international teams, and per the official release, she “chose Mizzou over offers from Ohio State, Wisconsin and Arizona, among others.” I didn’t think Mizzou had a scholarship available, so there could be news about attrition coming soon?
