So I know that college football coaches aren’t fans of the earlier recruiting calendar, but you go with it. And Mizzou’s got a couple of big officials coming up this weekend.
First, Jack Buford.
Buford is a 6’5, 320-pound offensive tackle from St. Louis Lutheran North and, per the 247Sports Composite, a four-star prospect. He made an official visit to Arkansas earlier this month, and he’s evidently high on Oklahoma as well (who isn’t at the moment?), but Mizzou has a chance to make an impression.
Also: Kyren Williams.
Williams is an RB/WR from St. John Vianney (sheesh, St. Louis appears loaded again) with offers from Michigan and Notre Dame. He’s a high-three-star prospect, No. 9 in the state per 247. The Crystal Ball voters seem to think ND is in the lead here, but Mizzou will get a chance to change that, too.
A big week of officials right after Memorial Day. Weird. But important all the same.

- A little worried about how Mizzou doesn’t have any 2019 basketball commitments yet? Fear not.
- Hey there, Bobby Lawrence.
- Breaking: Emanuel Hall is a good deep threat.
- Wait, Tigers are Dawgs now?
- Mizzou’s latest wrestling recruiting class: quite good.
- Oh good lord, Karissa Schweizer is really good in the community, too? That’s just showing off.
COLUMBIA, Mo. – Mizzou Track & Field senior Karissa Schweizer (Urbandale, Iowa) and redshirt senior Mark Sheridan (Ballwin, Mo.) were named to the Southeastern Conference Community Service Team, announced by the conference office Thursday. In addition to full class schedules and a rigorous travel schedule for competitions, Schweizer and Sheridan were able to lead their team in hours devoted to the Columbia community during the 2017-18 academic year.
Schweizer led the women’s squad with 36 volunteer hours, as she spent time at the SPLAT Mud Run, Hear of America Marathon, Susan G. Komen Race and the Columbia Food Bank. A role model to young girls in the Columbia community, Schweizer also helped coach a youth running club at a nearby school.
Sheridan led the team in volunteer hours on the men’s side, accumulating more than 16 hours. Sheridan spent time at the Susan G. Komen Race, the Columbia Food Bank and high school track meets, where he amassed 12 of his service hours.
