Eli Drinkwitz also joined Brendan Wiese and Ben Frederickson on The Big 550 KTRS’ Big Sports Show. A couple of notes — as Drinkwitz will also be throwing out the first pitch at Busch Stadium for tonight’s Cardinals-Cubs game:
Drinkwitz on @BigSportsShow. He’s throwing out first pitch at Thursday’s Cards-Cubs game. Confirms his Cubs “W” flag tweet was “subliminal message” about recruiting - not about the Cubs. But notes Cubs 3B coach Willie Harris is stepfather of Mizzou DB Tre’Vez Johnson— Dave Matter (@Dave_Matter) July 27, 2023
Drinkwitz on QB competition: “If it’s close we’ll drag it out.”— Dave Matter (@Dave_Matter) July 27, 2023
Says that for the other QB contenders to earn the job, they have to display the leadership that Brady Cook already provides.
And from Mizzou Basketball’s intersquad scrimmage in Jamaica, the freshman Trent Pierce had a 20-point, 10-rebound performance. Jordan Butler with the interview:
However, Mabor Majak was t permitted to make the trip to Jamaica according to Dave Matter:
Quick note on Mizzou basketball’s current trip in Jamaica: Center and captain Mabor Majak is not with the team there. As an international student, his student visa does not clear him to leave the US for this kind of visit.— Dave Matter (@Dave_Matter) July 26, 2023
Oh, and we also have a Kerrick Jackson bat signal? Stay tuned for an incoming baseball commit.
