In Tuesday’s introductory press conference, Eliah Drinkwitz said that recruiting was “urgent.”
He wasn’t lying, as he is out on the recruiting trail already.
Here he is with Missouri defensive tackle target Montra Edwards Jr. on Facetime Tuesday night.
And here he is on the road early Wednesday morning.
On the way to Tennessee to visit Missouri running back target Elijah Young. Young was recently named Class 5A Mr. Football in Tennessee.

We are less than a week away until December 18th’s National Signing Day early signing period, so Drinkwitz has his work cut out for him to keep this 2020 recruiting class together. As of right now, Missouri’s 2020 class ranks 52nd in the country and 12th in the SEC following the decommit of DE Cooper Davis, according to 247Sports.
As Drinkwitz starts to put his staff together, Erik Link will be his first official hire, as the Special Teams Coordinator, according to Yahoo Sports’ Pete Thamel.
