You know that tenuous game Mizzou’s been playing, going all-in on Courtney Ramey, USA Today’s Missouri player of the year, but trying to juggle other balls in the air, too? Well, the good news is that it’s probably not going to last too terribly much longer. The bad news? The pool of grad transfers is drying up a bit. Maine transfer Aaron Calixte? Off the boards.
First off I would like to thank god for putting me in the position I am in today. Without him none of it would be possible. With that being said, I am excited to announce my commitment to Coach Lon Kruger & his staff at the University of Oklahoma!! #BoomerSooner pic.twitter.com/gycheJOEVR— Aaron Calixte (@A_Calixte23) April 17, 2018
As you can probably guess, Matt Harris will have more on this development later in the day. In the meantime, you can listen to Sam talking Ramey with our Oklahoma State folks...
...and Matt talking recruiting and whatnot with Jay and George on The Closers.
Ramey, by the way? No. 40 in the final 2018 Rivals rankings. Mizzou signee Torrence Watson, meanwhile: No. 107.
So anyway, another day, another recruiting development. Yeehaaaaaaa.
Meanwhile, Cuonzo Martin took time to talk 2017-18 with Mizzou Network:
Yesterday at Rock M
- Mizzou’s still a couple of scholarships over the limit, but it looks like one more player has left: reserve linebacker Grant Jones.
Team spokesman confirms linebacker Grant Jones left the #Mizzou football team during spring ball. Will update the scholarship chart shortly.— Gabe DeArmond (@GabeDeArmond) April 17, 2018
- The go route king can’t wait to show off some new tricks this fall.
- Kony Ealy, #MizzouMade shot blocker.
The Cowboys will be hoping that Kony Ealy can continue to swat down passes with ease in Dallas! pic.twitter.com/BlYK2EfSG6— Pro Football Focus (@PFF) April 18, 2018
- No more of teams blocking transfers’ school options? Yeah, sign me up.
- A Mizzou Football / Big Brothers & Big Sisters video? Yeah, definitely sign me up.
- I guess mid-week style points don’t matter, which is good because Mizzou Baseball had none in yesterday’s 5-3 win over Chicago State. The Tigers took the lead on a throwing error and held on from there. Offense: still problematic. But whatever — Mizzou’s 25-12 all the same.
- Rylee Pierce had herself one hell of a week. Her reward: a second career SEC player of the week award.
- Looking for some photos from ROARS? The Missourian’s got you covered. And here’s a list of winners.
- Mizzou Women’s Golf is off to Hoover for the SEC Championships. And being that this is the SEC, the Tigers are facing off against the No. 2, 3, 10, 13, 20, and 24 teams, among others. That’s it? Huh. Must be a down year for the SEC.
