Mizzou’s “All-State” Teams: Who is the best?

New, 14 comments

We constructed the rosters, you decide which you’d rather have

As we wind down our “All-State” team series and get closer to SEC Media Days and the “official” start to the 2021 College Football season, it’s time to take a look one more time at the lineups for each region and take a vote: which one is the best?

Let’s recap!

Team Missouri

Team Missouri
  • Quarterback: Drew Lock
  • Running Back: Tony Temple
  • Wide Receiver: Jeremy Maclin
  • Tight End: Chase Coffman
  • Offensive Line: Justin Britt
  • Defensive Line: Justin Smith
  • Linebacker: Cale Garrett
  • Defensive Back: William Moore
  • Specialist: Grant Ressel

In true Gary Pinkel-fashion, the Missouri roster is the only one that boasts any blue-chip talents coming out of high school. It also features six guys who were drafted, two of which were in the 1st Round.

Team Texas

Team Texas
  • Quarterback: Chase Daniel
  • Running Back: Henry Josey
  • Wide Receiver: Danario Alexander
  • Tight End: Michael Egnew
  • Offensive Line: Mitch Morse
  • Defensive Line: Ziggy Hood
  • Linebacker: Sean Weatherspoon
  • Defensive Back: Kenji Jackson
  • Specialist: Marcus Murphy

Also in true Pinkel-fashion, the Texas boys are mostly overlooked recruits coming out of high school. From the Lilliputian 3-star Chase Daniel, the over-looked Danario Alexander, the tweener pass catcher Michael Egnew, or the small-town dynamo Sean Weatherspoon, Missouri absolutely nailed their overlooked-Texan recruiting pipeline and the results of our vote prove this fact. It also features seven dudes who found their way on to NFL rosters.

Team USA

Team USA
  • Quarterback: Brad Smith
  • Running Back: Larry Rountree III
  • Wide Receiver: L’Damian Washington
  • Tight End: Albert Okwuegbunam
  • Offensive Line: Connor McGovern
  • Defensive Line: Shane Ray
  • Linebacker: Kentrell Brothers
  • Defensive Back: Pig Brown
  • Specialist: Jeff Wolfert

Ohio, North Carolina, Louisiana, Illinois, North Dakota, Kansas (twice), Oklahoma, and Georgia banded together to create a pretty fantastic football roster. That’s a pretty far-flung collection of locations but - LDW aside - most of them were considered solid, 3-star prospects coming out of high school. Six guys from this lineup made it in the NFL as well.

Now...which lineup is the best?

We’ll leave that up to you! Vote on which team you’d like to be able to roll out week after week to determine the “ultimate winner” of this summer exercise.
