Before we jump into our ongoing coverage, let’s hop in with the bad news from yesterday, shall we?
Mizzou Football loses their top rated Commit, Antonio Doyle
Big thanks to the University of Missouri but I have made a decision to explore my options respect my decision— Antonio Doyle Jr (@GoatOpportunity) August 29, 2019
Doyle was a surprise commitment back in June, as the highly rated linebacker was long considered either an Oklahoma or Texas A&M lean until he pledged to Mizzou. What’s interesting is he mentioned the fact he was about to become a father as one of the reasons he committed, and just the other day Doyle’s daughter was born. At this point it’s hard to quantify where Missouri fits into the picture, but it’s rarely the case a player will decommit from a school only to commit again to the same school later on.
So how about we rinse that taste out of our mouths with this most excellent video from Mizzou Football’s twitter account:
And here’s Marcus Murphy doing Marcus Murphy things:
And here’s Kendall Blanton scoring a Touchdown as well:

It didn't take long for Kelly Bryant to gain support at #Mizzou. That's no surprise to the people who knew him in South Carolina, be it at #Clemson, his high school or in his home town.— Peter Baugh (@Peter_Baugh) August 28, 2019
He has a warm nature, and he doesn't shy away from hard decisions.https://t.co/uhhFeDCHxT pic.twitter.com/bVoWzmOiKG
