If it wasn’t a rivalry before, it certainly is now!

On the eve of Early Signing Day, Eli Drinkwitz, Jacob Peeler, and Co. have pulled of a coup, swooping into the state of Arkansas and plucking arguably its best player out of the hands of the Razorbacks. Blue-chip receiver Courtney Crutchfield, a one-time Arkansas Razorback commit, will don the black and gold in college.

Crutchfield was committed to Sam Pittman’s class until early November, when a decommitment was followed swiftly by prognostications of a Mizzou flip. It’s been a long month and a half since, with many rumors of NIL negotiations and dueling offers, but the good guys won out in the end. But I get it... why play for Arkansas when a better program exists just a few hours north?

On first glance there is quite a lot to like about Courtney Crutchfield’s tape. He’s tall, he’s fast, he’s strong (despite only weighing a buck 75), he’s got great hands and physical instincts... he’s almost the whole package.

Of course, we must acknowledge that Crutchfield is playing against high school defenses, which explains why he looks like a man amongst boys. The tape is still impressive, nonetheless! Crutchfield gives Mizzou an immediate successor to Theo Wease, Jr. — a long, tall outside man who can do as much damage in possession as he can in the red zone.
