First it was cornerback L.J. Hewitt. Then wide receiver Demariyon Houston. Now Missouri adds another JUCO prospect, this time an offensive lineman from Coffeyville Community College.
The 6’6” 315 pound offensive tackle got his Missouri offer on May 22nd and wasted no time getting on campus, taking an official visit on May 29th and, now, committing on the first day of June.

BK and I like to remind you to not listen to what coaches say but rather listen to what they do. So however you view Missouri’s current roster - and, in this case, the offensive line - it seems clear that the staff believed they absolutely needed another tackle to add to the mix. Is it because Bobby Lawrence/Mitchell Walters/et al aren’t ready? Is it because Hyrin White’s injury will cause him to miss the season? Is it a mix of both? Time will tell but, for now, this signing apparently fills a need on this team.
