Tis the season to be merry, and tis the season to shop the transfer portal.

Mizzou is in need of some Defensive Line depth, and Eli Drinkwitz and his staff went shopping for some Defensive Line talent and found Austin Firestone, a versatile D-line prospect from the 2022 class. Firestone was on a visit this past weekend and did not wait long to name Mizzou his new home.

Firestone committed to Northwestern in late 2021 and played some for the Wildcats as a true freshman, but not enough to burn a redshirt. So he’ll have four years of eligibility remaining.

Get to know: Austin Firestone

Hometown: Niceville, FL

Previous School: Northwestern

Position: Defensive Line

Ht/Wt: 6’5 / 260

Rivals Ranking: 3-star / 5.7

247Composite Ranking: 3-star / 0.8837

Clearly things can change from his high school highlights, but he looks to have the size and mobility to be able to play multiple spots along the line.

For now we aren’t including the transfers into the class but Fireston is the second Power Conference transfer to land at Missouri following the commitment of former Oklahoma Wide Receiver Theo Wease. We’ll have more on Firestone, and the rest of the transfer portal in the coming days.
