Some recruiting tidbits, anyone?
It was a slow Sunday at the “office,” but there was some activity on the Mizzou recruiting trail... kind of?
Mizzou has already reeled in several transfers out of the portal and may have more coming in the near future. One of their targets was on campus this weekend.
Hopper would qualify as an impact addition mostly because of his Power Five experience. Hopper started double digit games for the Tar Heels this season, logging 27 tackles and leading the team in QB hurries. With Blaze Alldredge exiting, there’s a need on the depth chart for experience... here’s hoping the staff can get it done.
The 2022 chickens are coming home to roost as well. Some recruits from the most recent class made their way to campus this weekend and were “honored” during halftime of the Mizzou Hoops game against Texas A&M.

The reception, from what I hear, was very warm. (It was)
Speaking of Marcus Scott, some congratulations are in order: the new Tiger was named to the 2021 All-Greater Houston football team!
More Tigers are filtering onto campus as well. Kansas City area offensive lineman Armand Membou is already on campus and ready to start rockin’!
Is it time for spring camp yet?
Yesterday at Rock M
- In which I wrote about Mizzou’s chance at another impressive upset slipping out of their grasp... and what it could mean for Cuonzo’s future
- Christ Kwiecinski at the Columbia Tribune wrote about Mizzou’s penchant for turning the ball over, and how improving ball security is essential to turning around this season.
- It was a good start to Nick Bolton’s playoff career with the Chiefs. The former Tiger logged 8 tackles in Kansas City’s 42-21 win over the Steelers, tying L’Jarius Sneed for the team lead.
- Today in fun facts:
- The Mizzou baseball team is back in action on the indoor practice field. As a former player, there’s nothing more satisfying than the ping or crack of batting practice.
- Affiliated with Mizzou via employment or enrollment? Need your COVID-19 vaccine? You’re in luck!
Next week #Mizzou will host a COVID vaccine clinic. It will be open to students, faculty and staff seeking a vaccine or booster. The clinic will run 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Student Center. https://t.co/l6yBJsCG2S pic.twitter.com/y9hl5JM7rH— Mizzou (@Mizzou) January 16, 2022
- It’s not sports related, but shoutout to Dr. Chung-Ho Lin, a COVID-19 researcher and associate professor at MU, who was profiled by the Missourian. Lin has been part of the effort to track the COVID-19 pandemic using state wastewater and also works on natural product development to reduce toxins in the environment. It’s cool to have good and smart people associated with Mizzou!
