Punter Will Safris commits to Mizzou Football

This is Missouri’s 12th commitment of the 2024 class.

It’s one of the least celebrated positions on the gridiron. But let me ask you something: Can you remember the last time your team was burned by a punter? I can. And it sucks.

We’ve seen Mizzou’s special teams have some exceptional moments under Eli Drinkwitz. And maximizing the success of those areas can make up some of the fine margins between programs like Missouri and their peers in the SEC.

Hopefully Mizzou’s newest commitment will help them in that area for years to come.

According to Kohl’s, Safris is the nineteenth ranked punter in the country. He’s listed as a five-star punter and a four-and-a-half star placekicker.
