Let. Brady. Cook.

After being named “QB1” to start the season on Tuesday evening, Brady Cook took the practice field for the first time as Mizzou’s starting quarterback as preseason camp continued for the Tigers.

Here are a couple of videos, from Calum McAndrew and Matt Stahl:

Following practice, head coach Eli Drinkwitz met with reporters — and said that this is the most confidence he’s had in the QB room while at Missouri:

Meanwhile, Drinkwitz says that Sam Horn is a lot further ahead than he expected, and Macon, Abraham bounced back well.

And from Brady Cook himself, he calls the opportunity, “a dream come true.”

An injury report from Matt Stahl — running back Nathaniel Peat will be returning soon after a soft tissue injury.

And a basketball recruiting note — Macaleab Rich, a three-star forward from East St. Louis has trimmed his list to a Top Five. Mizzou has made the cut, along with Kansas State, Ole Miss, Eastern Michigan, and Illinois-Chicago. Rich will announce his commitment decision on September 26th.
