[T]here may not be a Sasser-type breakout star this year. There may be an option or two that nudges ahead of the others but it could be a committee aproach.

That's how it looked in the spring, at least, when nobody really grabbed that "go-to guy" distinction. Moore had his moments. Blair and Wingo did as well. Brown didn't get the chance because he was injured.

Can any of them become the feature wideout on this year's team? Does Missouri even really need one to be a healthy passing offense?

The punting job will be interesting to watch, as we haven't seen Fatony or Balvanz in action yet. Given that Fatony was brought in on scholarship, the expectations are high for him - and he showed a big leg in high school.

Mauk hasn't shown great anticipation in his two-year career. He's a quarterback who sees the open receiver and then fires it to him. The anticipation needs to exist in 2015. Missouri can't go another year making up for a sub-60 percent completion percentage.

Post-Dispatch: Kirkwood's Alton picks Mizzou

Alton, a star running back at Kirkwood, said Missouri is recruiting him as an athlete, leaving open the possibility that he could play slot receiver or cornerback. He was a second-team Suburban XII South Conference running back last season, rushing for 943 yards and seven touchdowns. He also caught 20 passes for 278 yards and two scores and had 24 tackles on defense with two interceptions.

"I prefer to play in the slot," he said. "But if they need to me play DB, I will."
