Mizzou Links for Thursday, July 2

It was a big week for Tyler Macon...

It was already a huge honor in of itself to be one of the 20 senior high school quarterbacks to get invited to the Elite 11, but Tyler Macon impressed even more at the three-day event in Nasvhille, Tennessee. He jumped from ninth to fifth from Elite 11’s day-to-day rankings and came in fifth in the Pro Day rankings.

Late Wednesday night, the Elite 11 announced their final rankings, with Macon officially making the cut. The MVP went to uncommitted quarterback Caleb Williams.

Macon is the first Missouri quarterback (high school) commit to make the final Elite 11 rankings since Drew Lock in 2014, and the 247Sports team is starting to take some notice on the future Tiger.

Macon came in ninth in 247’s final Elite 11 quarterback rankings, and here’s their take on him:

Tyler Macon wasn’t the most heralded quarterback coming in, but flashed for us several times. The East St. Louis (Ill.) standout had a solid pro-day workout, showing off a live, accurate arm to all three levels of the field. He’s an athletic dual-threat signal caller who put up huge numbers last season and should be in for a nice rankings bump following his performance. The Missouri commit is currently the nation’s No. 748 ranked player and the No. 25 ranked dual-threat quarterback.

Macon is currently rated as a three-star prospect on 247Sports, but stay tuned as he should be in for a ratings bump here pretty soon.

After the event, Tyler Macon has a message for Mizzou fans:

And here’s Macon on his experience:

Congrats to Tyler on his big week! Now, onto the links!
