Mizzou follows up big weekend with more ‘crootin

Cuonzo Martin and his staff had a big weekend in their continued efforts to revamp the Mizzou Hoops roster, and it would appear they’re not finished (duh.)

After the official signing of Amari Davis, along with the commitments of DaJuan Gordon and Jarron “Boogie” Coleman, Mizzou could still use some help on the interior to bolster the likes of Kobe Brown, Jordan Wilmore and Yaya Keita. They’re surely in on more than one player, but a new name popped up on Monday, one that Tiger fans saw earlier this past season.

Lawson, a 6’8” rising junior, played a 48.1 minutes percentage in Eugene, posting a 53 true shooting percentage mostly on shots from the interior. He’s not the world’s best rebounder, but he does provide some interior defense and would be a boon to the front court depth.

Of course, the transfer portal isn’t the only place players can be got. The 2021 class has seen some signees ask out of their LOIs due to some big coaching changes within the college ranks. Texas had more than one signee hit the open market again (Tamar Bates, looking at you), and we even commented on another who has heard from the Tigers.

Of course, this isn’t the exhaustive list of players Mizzou is in on, but they are the latest names to hop up on social media. We’ll keep watching Twitter and reading between the lines and keep y’all updated on what’s coming.

  • First and foremost, friend of Rock M Carrington Harrison (Editor’s note: CDot!) dropped a trailer for his upcoming documentary, From Paseo to Pembroke, on Monday. It’s a look at a decade of high school basketball excellence in the Kansas City area, and it looks fascinating. Congrats to Carrington on his achievement of making a movie (it’s really hard!), and we can’t wait to see it.
