It’s a big weekend for Mizzou Football, as they have four members of the 2020 recruiting class enroll for the spring semester to get a jump on their college careers.
The freshmen have arrived at the #NewZou #MIZ pic.twitter.com/u1jgi528D7— Mizzou Football (@MizzouFootball) January 18, 2020
(my favorite appears to be Harrison Mevis’ relative taking photos with an iPad — we all have this relative, right?)
The early enrollees are:
- 3-star WR Jay Mackin, from Kirkwood, MO
- 3-star QB Brady Cook, from St. Louis, MO
- 3-star RB Elijah Young, from Knoxville, TN
- 3-star K Harrison Mevis, from Warsaw, IN

Meanwhile, it’s an important weekend in recruiting also
@MizzouFootball I’m here pic.twitter.com/21nRfMq7OB— Ennis Rakestraw Jr (@EnnisRakestraw) January 18, 2020
Ennis Rakestraw is a major late signing period target for the Tigers. He’s a 3-star Cornerback out of Texas who has offers from Alabama, Georgia, Texas... basically everyone at this point. Mizzou was on him early, and gets the first crack. Hopefully that’s enough.
There will be a few juniors and sophomores on campus as the staff tries to set its priorities for the 2021 and 2022 classes. One of those juniors is 4-star Travion Ford, a defensive end from St. Louis Lutheran North, who has been a high priority for just about everyone in the region.
New Mizzou Head Coach Eli Drinkwitz @CoachDrinkwitz invited my son Travion Ford @Tre_Got_Skills to Mizzou to sit down and meet with the new coaching staff on tomorrow. Can’t wait to meet everyone‼️ #Mizzou pic.twitter.com/qKterQmOMq— Tricia Ford (@Lelee702) January 17, 2020
Mekhi Wingo is a 3-star defensive tackle also made the trip.

It looks like Connor Tollison was included, he’s a 2021 3-star Offensive Lineman from Jackson, MO.
Blessed to receive an offer from Mizzou!!#NewZou pic.twitter.com/B7Rhq5PFDh— Connor Tollison (@TollisonConnor) January 18, 2020
Last one we’ve got on twitter was Toriano Pride, a fantastically named 3-star 2022 cornerback from Lutheran North in St. Louis.
