While the transfer portal has been all the rage in college recruiting these days, the original, old-school version of the transfer portal was school recruiting players from the junior college ranks.
And with a notable absence of quality transfer portal players, Missouri has been hitting the JUCO ranks hard the past two weeks, landing Demariyon Houston last week.
This week? Its defensive back LJ Hewitt:
Hewitt is an unranked JUCO defensive back currently enrolled in Gulf Coast Community College for the class of 2023. However, he is looking to reclassify to the class of 2022 and is expected to be on campus for the summer sessions.
