First weekend of Mizzou spring football ends with two recruiting commitments

Mizzou Links for Monday, March 9

Drink! Drink! Drink! (the coach not the activity, duh)

Sundays can be pretty boring on the offseason college sports beat, but Eli Drinkwitz saw it fit to give us a hearty Sunday evening. Thanks, Drink!

After a host of visitors swarmed Columbia for the first weekend of spring ball, Drinkwitz threw up the bat signal early Sunday evening. Shortly after, the commitment of 3-star offensive lineman Connor Tollison was announced.

Tollison — who sported offers from Alabama, Oklahoma and Texas A&M, among others — is a nice get for Drinkwitz as he continues adding to the 2021 class early on. Speaking with PowerMizzou, Tollison pointed out that his good relationships with Drinkwitz and new OL coach Marcus Johnson were key factors in his decision.

BUT Coach Drinkwitz wasn’t done. Shortly after Tollison’s announcement, Daniel Hawthorne, a long-snapper who had been committed to LSU as a preferred walk-on, took the same offer at Mizzou.

To be clear, Hawthorne will be a member of the 2020 class and should be suiting up next fall.
