On Sunday Eli Drinkwitz treated the Missouri faithful to a curious tweet of dominos falling:

And of course everyone wanted to know: what the heck does that mean? A series of commitments? A series of transfers? A new coach addition?
For now the question is, at least, partially answered, as Ennis Rakestraw officially elected to return for the ‘23 season and Eli put up his bat signal:

Word is the Tigers like the idea of Harris possibly playing defensive end, whereas other school projected him as a tight end. Where he ends up will be determined much later next year but, for now, Missouri just brought on a diamond-in-the-rough player who can play either side of the field. Nifty piece to have!
We’ll have tape breakdown later on but, for now, welcome to Mizzou, Jordon!
