Huff to Mizzou!

Winning a recruiting battle for one of the top players in the state of Arkansas over the Razorbacks? That seems pretty good, right?

Well, in case you missed it, that’s what the Mizzou Football staff accomplished yesterday evening with the addition of 2024 four-star linebacker Brian Huff — who committed to Missouri over Arkansas, UCF, and UNLV.

Read MORE on Huff from Josh Matejka’s commitment post:

And is there a baseball commitment on the way? Kerrick Jackson with the bat signal.

Due to the transfer portal and MLB Draft, Mizzou Baseball is bound to have plenty of roster turnover — but it appears Jackson is working quickly to piece together the 2024 club. Stay tuned as the bat signal could potentially be for a big-time transfer.

Onto NBA Summer League, Kobe Brown had a productive day with the Clippers. In an 83-74 win over the Grizzlies, Brown produced a double-double performance — 12 points, 10 rebounds, one assist, two steals, and two blocks. In 29:34 of playing time, Brown was a +6 on the floor.

Up next for Kobe and the Clippers: Friday vs 76ers (4:00 p.m. CST on ESPN2)

Meanwhile, D’Moi Hodge also had a big night for the Lakers. In a 95-90 loss to the Celtics, Hodge scored 22 points (8/16 FG and 6/13 from 3-point range) with four rebounds and one assist in 29:31 of playing time. Hodge was LAL’s second-leading scorer behind Max Christie’s 24 points.

We agree, Pep!

Up next for Hodge and the Lakers: Friday vs Grizzlies (10:00 p.m. CST on ESPN)
