Missouri has added another player through the transfer portal and the first from the Southeastern Conference. Former Georgia Bulldog Darris Smith committed to the Tigers via his Instagram on Wednesday joining Cayden Green (Oklahoma), Marcus Carroll (Georgia Southern) and Toriano Pride (Clemson) in Mizzou’s transfer portal class.

In the past two seasons with the Bulldogs, Smith has appeared in 16 games. He’s tallied six total tackles, and a pass deflection. Per On3sports, he’s was the seventh highest-rated linebacker in the transfer portal and the 108th overall player.

He chose the Bulldogs over Akron, Auburn, Louisville, Miami, Michigan State, North Carolina, South Carolina, Syracuse, Tennessee, and Wisconsin.
