Missouri sophomore OL Pompey Coleman (leg) has retired.

Coleman (6'5/300) sustained a broken leg in September of 2016 which cost him the bulk of his senior season in high school. He subsequently joined Missouri as a three-star recruit in the 2017 class. That earlier broken leg is cause for his decision to retire, here, as his body simply did not respond as cleanly as would have been hoped for. It's an unfortunate early end to Coleman's young playing career.

Missouri redshirt senior WR Raymond Wingo will transfer as a graduate.

Wingo (5'11/175) initially joined Missouri as a three-star cornerback in the 2014 recruiting class. After taking a redshirt his first year on campus, he shifted over to receiver prior to the start of the 2015 campaign. The speedster flashed with very limited touches in 2016, catching five passes for 143 yards and two touchdowns while averaging a hearty 28.3 yards per reception, but did not log a reception during the most recent campaign. This lack of work was due in part to a summer academic issue which forced him to sit out the majority of August camp, setting him behind the eight-ball from the start.

Oregon redshirt senior S Khalil Oliver transferred to Missouri as a graduate.

Oliver (6'0/205) announced that he would be transferring in late September, but waited until after his winter graduation to pull the trigger in full with this move to Missouri. He's angling for a medical redshirt to cover the 2017 season, which would allow him an additional year of eligibility. After starting the season-opener for the Ducks, an injury concern kept him out of action for the remainder of the campaign. During a healthy 2016 campaign, the Idaho native logged 46 tackles (2.5 for loss), two passes defended and an interception. Missouri is relatively stocked at safety and Oliver will need to earn his stripes this offseason if he's to make a dent on the depth chart.

Oregon redshirt junior Alex Ofodile will transfer as a graduate to Missouri.

Odofile is the second Oregon player to transfer from the Ducks to the Tigers on Friday, joining safety Khalil Oliver on making the move from the Pac-12 North school to the SEC. The 6-foot-3, 211-pound wideout was a highly recruited player coming out of high school -- ranking as high as fifth at the wide receiver position -- but never got a chance to establish himself, finishing with just four catches in his time with Oregon. He should have a chance to contribute immediately to the receiving corps, as he'll be eligible to play immediately since he graduated.
Feb 9 - 9:17 PM

Missouri signed 2018 four-star JUCO junior WR Harry Ballard III.

Ballard (6’2/180) spent the past few years in the JUCO ranks after having issues qualifying out of high school. He's a really good fit for this pass-happy Missouri team that just lost WR J'Mon Moore but returns star QB Drew Lock. Ballard could potentially see early playing time and the targets that that'd bring in Mizzou's system. "Ballard is an imposing player with good ball skills and sneaky quickness," notes ESPN. "Should fit into a rotation and used on the jump ball once on campus."

Missouri DE Marcell Frazier was not invited to the NFL Scouting Combine.

Frazier (6'4/261) showed out well during East-West Shrine Game practices in January, but no dice on the combine invitation. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline wrote of his performance in St. Petersburg that the defensive end "looked the part," with consistency his main bugaboo as he heads toward his professional career. He's a fringe draftable prospect.

Missouri received a verbal commitment from three-star LB Nicholas Bolton, who had previously been committed to Washington.

Bolton committed over the summer to the Huskies, but he's the rare Chris Petersen commit who decided to open things up when he decommitted in the fall. He's rated the 44th best inside linebacker in the class by 247 Sports. In addition to the Huskies and Tigers, he also had offers from Indiana, Kansas, Colorado and Boston College, to name a few.

Missouri has indefinitely suspended redshirt senior S Kaleb Prewett.

No information as to the impetus for this suspension has emerged outside of the boilerplate "violation of team rules." Prewett (6'1/210) transferred over to Missouri from Kansas State during the 2016 offseason and subsequently sat out that campaign due to NCAA regulations. He worked as Missouri's starting strongside linebacker for the first six games of the most recent campaign before moving to safety, where he started the final seven contests. In total, Prewett racked up 59 tackles (4.0 for loss), an interception and two passes defended during the 2017 campaign. Just when Prewett might be allowed to emerge from HC Barry Odom's doghouse is not yet known.

Three-star 2018 JUCO QB Lindsey Scott has verbally committed to play at Missouri.

Scott (5'11/210) was rated the top junior college quarterback in the nation by 247 Sports, and the 40th best JuCo prospect overall. A former player at LSU, Scott comes to the Tigers after spending 2017 with East Mississippi Community College, the school made famous by the Netflix docuseries 'Last Chance U.' He could be the heir apparent to senior QB Drew Lock after he leaves in 2019.

NFL Media Analyst Daniel Jeremiah lists Missouri junior QB Drew Lock as one of the three quarterbacks we'll be talking about in one year.

Lock is joined on the list by NC State junior QB Ryan Finley and Auburn QB Jarrett Stidham. It's amazing how much things have changed since Missouri was 1-5, as Lock (6'4/220) has gone from intriguing-but-volatile prospect to a legitimate candidate for top pick in 2019. As Jeremiah notes, "everyone loves his size and strength" and he ended up leading the FBS with 43 touchdowns.

Missouri junior QB Drew Lock will return to school for the 2018 season.

Lock (6'4/220) was given a "return to school" grade from the NFL's draft advisory board in December, but at the time, said that he had heard more encouraging opinions from other sources. He ultimately took the advisory board's advice in a move that we think is right on the money. While Lock exploded statistically during the 2017 season, throwing for 3,964 yards (9.5 YPA) with a 44/13 TD/INT ratio, much of that came against subpar competition. Consistency is an issue. He'll also need to show improvements in his discipline and accuracy (just 54.5-percent completions for his career) if he's to ever rise above existence as a strong-armed gunslinger who can't cut it against representative defensive units.

Missouri hired Dallas Cowboys WR coach Derek Dooley to serve as offensive coordinator.

Dooley steps in as replacement for Josh Heupel, who took the head-coaching position at UCF earlier this offseason. He's been working as Cowboys' wide receivers coach for the past five years. While this will be Dooley's first offensive-coordinating gig, he has plenty of experience in the SEC, having served as an assistant with Nick Saban for five seasons at LSU and later taking over as head coach at Tennessee in place of Lane Kiffin from 2010-12. That stint with the Vols did not pan out -- Dooley was fired midway through the 2012 season after his team had compiled a 15-21 record during his time helming the ship.
Jan 5 - 6:47 PM

Missouri sophomore WR Johnathon Johnson finished with three receptions for 85 yards in Wednesday's loss against Texas, including a 79-yard touchdown in the Texas Bowl.

Johnson's 79-yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage in the third quarter appeared to be a wake-up call for the Longhorns defense, as they clamped down and allowed just three points for the remainder of the game. Johnson posted 85 or more yards on five separate occasions and appears to have some nice big-play ability for a Tigers offense that should continue to make waves into 2018.

Missouri freshman RB Larry Rountree III rushed for a game-high 74 yards on 14 attempts in Wednesday's 33-16 setback at the Texas Bowl, and he added three receptions for 37 yards against Texas.

Rountree had the second- and third-longest offensive plays of the night, shaking free for a 17-yard rush while also posting a 25-yard catch on the team's final scoring drive of the evening in the third quarter. He wrapped up the second with 703 rushing yards, and looks to have a bright future in Columbia. Rountree also added career highs with the three grabs and 37 yards, and if he can add catching passes to his repertoire, he'll be that much more valuable in 2018.

Missouri junior QB Drew Lock completed 18-of-34 passes for 269 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Wednesday's 33-16 loss against Texas in the Texas Bowl.

Lock had just one big play, a 79-yard touchdown strike to WR Johnathon Johnson on the first play of the second half. It looked like Mizzou's offense might awaken after its first-half slumber, but the Longhorns recovered and held the Tigers down for the remainder of the game. It was a stark contrast from the video game-like numbers Mizzou put up in the second half of the season. The NFL Draft Advisory Board did not assign Lock a first- or second-round grade, but he's still mulling over his future. Expect an announcement on whether or not he'll return very soon.
