New, 1 comment

This is Missouri’s 20th commitment of the 2020 class.

Mizzou football got some fantastic news late Friday afternoon when Rutgers graduate transfer interior lineman, Michael Maietti, pledged his commitment to play for Missouri.

Maietti announced his intent to transfer from Rutgers on January 24th and had conducted a quiet recruitment until his announcement.

Maietti started 12 games at center last year, and 33 games overall during his three years for Rutgers and was an Academic All Big 10 player during his time there. He’ll be immediately expected to contend for starting snaps along an offensive line looking to replace their own starting center.

I’m by no means a good judge of offensive line blocking and prowess, but I’d consider a 3-year starter for a Big 10 team, regardless of the struggles Rutgers has had in recent seasons, can only be considered a good thing for the offensive line.
