Best wishes to Tez, Isaiah, and Jalani.
Due to the transfer portal and NFL Draft, Mizzou’s Football roster is going to look very different (and limited) whenever the Tigers get to play their bowl game. Here’s a look at yesterday’s announcements as the current roster depletion continues:
Columbia’s own Martez Manuel has entered the NFL Draft and opted out of the bowl game with an emotional goodbye. Thank you for everything, Tez.
Keep going, keep growing❤️— Tezo (@martezmanuel13) November 30, 2022

Nate Edwards provided the stats on Manuel’s career:
Manuel finishes his Mizzou career with 2,017 snaps in 46 games over 4 years with 94 tackles, 3 TFLs, 1 sack, 5.5 run stuffs, 16 passes broken up, 1 INT, and 1 forced fumble. Go get ‘em, Tez https://t.co/YFZmHiAgpC— Nate Edwards (@NateGEdwards) November 30, 2022
Isaiah McGuire, who played in the Arkansas game with a separated shoulder, has announced that he is entering the NFL Draft.
It was reported earlier, but safety from St. Louis (Parkway North High School) Jalani Williams — officially announced his entrance into the transfer portal.
Best of luck to all in their next chapters.
And Mizzou Women’s Basketball improved to 7-1 on the season with a resounding 82-52 win over in-state opponent SLU. Lauren Hansen led the team with 24 points and the Tigers are back in action on Saturday afternoon against UMass in Tempe, Arizona in the Arizona State Classic. More from Adeen in his gamer:
