1. Taking a look at Missouri’s in-state recruiting this cycle
Dave Matter of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has a nice look at Missouri’s current crop of commitments, almost all who are expected to sign during the early signing period from Dec. 19-21.
Matter always uses area scout Danny Heitart in his recruiting evaluations, and Heitart was effusive in his praise for four-star safety Jalanai Williams.
From Matter’s piece:
“He’s got very good diagnostics and closing speed,” Heitert said. “He takes really good, smart pursuit paths to the ball. He just dissolves ball-carriers. He’s a wicked striker. ... He’s a rare, rare safety.”
Make sure you read the whole article for some more insight onto Missouri’s current commitments and what to expect leading up to next Wednesday.

Missouri Deputy Athletics Director Nick Joos tweeted out some updated views from Missouri’s South Endzone Project, which is getting closer and closer to completion.
Here’s the look from Barry Odom’s eventual office, for instance:
It will be nice to see what the finished project looks like. I just want our stadium to be whole again, you guys.
