Tyler Macon on recruiting for Mizzou and rankings

Mizzou Links for Wednesday, July 8

Tyler Macon is EVERYWHERE.

We’ve gotten all sorts of glimpses into the future Missouri Tiger (assuming he signs, of course) recently— so much so that I feel like we are going to really know him before he even sets foot on campus. We’ve devoured his film on PowerMizzou and from other various sources, we’ve listened to him talk, we’ve heard his coaches at ESL and from camp discuss him... He’s everywhere, and I love it! Tuesday, of course, was no exception.

Dave Matter of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch wrote about how a solid performance at the Elite 11 camp, where Tyler Macon came in ranked 19 out of 20, is just the start of his big plans.

Will his impressive performance at camp raise his recruiting rankings? You can read all about what the coaches had to say about Macon in the post, and based on that information, I can’t see how he doesn’t rise up significantly. As for where the three-star Macon stands right now, he’s the # 15 dual threat quarterback according to Rivals, and # 25 according to 247sports. Macon hopes to see a change once they are recalculated.

“It matters to me because I know the work I’ve put in,” he said. “I know what I deserve. I feel like I need my proper respect because I’ve done everything those other guys have done. So why can’t I have the same ranking or even better?”

The East St. Louis Flyer, who is taking enough core classes to graduate early and enroll at Mizzou in January, has also become quite the recruiter. He’s looking to bring in teammates Keontez Lewis and Dominic Lovett. From the article:

“I’m definitely pushing them to come join me,” he said. “I’ve got a good feeling about them.”

You can also check out this from Fans 590’s Charlie Marlow, who chatted with Macon about recruiting:

I don’t know about you all, but this seems good. Right?

In its inaugural season, the Social Justice Council will cultivate designated spaces for community conversations, virtual roundtables, player-produced podcasts, and other activations to address this country’s long history of inequality, implicit bias and systemic racism that has targeted black and brown communities. With an intentional plan to educate, amplify and mobilize for action, the WNBA and the WNBPA will focus on engaging educators, activists, community and business leaders with players, team and league staff, and fans.
