BREAKING: Former 5-Star Oklahoma Receiver Theo Wease Transfers to Mizzou

Mizzou’s first incoming transfer of the ‘22 Transfer Portal Season is a big one.

To date, the transfer portal season has been mostly negative for Mizzou. Losing backups isn’t fun but neither is losing projected starters on the offensive line. Or, perhaps, All-SEC caliber young receivers.

The only way to salve the sting of losing starters is to remedy it with starter-quality additions portaling in to your team. And, boy, did your Tigers make a statement in that department.

Eli Drinkwitz heard you liked 5-star wide receivers. So he replaced the outgoing 4-star wide receiver with an in-coming, experienced 5-star wide receiver. Folks, the man can absolutely recruit.

Theo Wease Stats

The raw stats — height, weight, yardage, catches, yardage — make him look like a replicate of Tauskie Dove. However, Wease has much better yards-per-catch and yards-per-target numbers and, oh yeah, has caught 10 touchdowns in his career. His ‘22 stats might not have been as impressive as his sophomore campaign but a.) he was coming off of an injury that caused him to miss the entire ‘21 season, and b.) this year’s Oklahoma offense was, understandably, quite a bit less dynamic than previous iterations.
