Here are your Mizzou Links for Friday, May 8

Mizzou welcomes 2021 commit, Anton Brookshire, and JuCo transfer Ed Chang signs on the dotted line!

Yay! We’ve got our first 2021 commit, y’all! Rejoice! I know some of you aren’t that excited— I saw some less than enthused comments when I waded into Thursday’s links post— but this looks to be a good one.

Our basketball overlords at Rock M, as well as some others, were really pumped, despite that lowly “3-star” ranking.

Witness.

Matt’s comments on the Twitter from Tuesday after he was offered:

From Fearless Leader Sam:

Our own graphics guy, Levi Hutmacher, got in on the fun, too, sharing some clips of AB’s 33-point performance against No. 3 Oak Hill Academy. As did Barstool Mizzou.

The Mizzou Media was all over the commitment, of course. Check out the coverage from everyone here: Stu Durando (St. Louis Post-Dispatch). Mitchell Forde (PowerMizzou). Adam Reckamp (Columbia Missourian). Souichi Terada (KC Star). Eric Blum (Columbia Tribune).

In other hoops news, Ed Chang became officially-official with submitting his paperwork. By the way, BIG fan of the excessive g’s in his twitter handle.

Onto the links we go! Happy Friday!

Interesting/Non-Mizzou News

These are a few of the best sports stories & tidbits I found regarding some goings-on in sports and the world— Enjoy!

  • In BIZARRE news, Peter Baugh of The Athletic wrote about Patrick “Speedy” Flowers, the 5-star prospect out of Joplin, MO who created a very real recruiting stir. Described as “one part Lamar Jackson,” he chose Michigan State over such national powerhouses as Alabama and Clemson. What? Who is this guy? Well, friends, he doesn’t exist. He’s a video game character born out of an apartment in East Lansing, MI. It’s a crazy story, and I highly suggest reading it... if you’re a subscriber ;)
  • I do not claim to really care about the NFL as a whole, though I do try and make an effort to see check on how the Mizzou guys are faring on their respective teams, and I try to watch the Broncos (Drew Lock— duh), and the Chiefs when I have time (or remember), but this is awesome. The Jacksonville Jaguars shared their NFL schedule, complete with hilarious cat videos. BRAVO. BRAVO.
