Mizzou Football Adds Murray State Transfer Punter Orion Phillips to 2024 Class

Orion Phillips is the sixth transfer addition to join Mizzou Football’s 2024 Class

Another day, another transfer portal addition for the Mizzou Football program. This time it’s via special teams at the punter position.

Murray State punter transfer Orion Phillips has announced his commitment to Mizzou.

From Pro Kick Australia, Phillips produced a successful freshman season for Murray State as he was a semifinalist for the FCS punter of the year and had notable punts of 67 and 71 yards for the Racers.

Back on October 2nd, Phillips was named Missouri Valley Football Special Teams Player of the Week.

Phillips was also named an honorable mention to the All-MVFC team this season. Phillips becomes the sixth transfer addition to join Mizzou Football’s 2024 class, joining Toriano Pride, Marcus Carroll, Cayden Green, Darris Smith, and Corey Flagg Jr.

This is an underrated addition for Erik Link’s special teams unit as Phillips racked up some impressive accolades in his freshman season.

Welcome to Mizzou, Orion! M-I-Z!
