First of all, I hope everybody enjoyed their holiday weekend. Here's some quick updates on your Tigers.
If you hadn't heard, Mizzou safety Jarrell Harrison was arrested Friday on suspicion of misdemeanor shoplifting. As if this is not bad enough in itself, he was shoplifting from Spencer's in the Columbia mall. For those of you unfamiliar with Spencer's, here's how their website describes the store:
"Spencer’s gets any party started with funny gifts and gag gifts, corporate gifts to motivate, romantic gifts to stimulate, personalized gifts to appreciate and so much more."
Harrison, who started eight games for the Tiger's and made 47 tackles last season, had mysteriously fallen to third on the depth chart this spring. This arrest isn't going to help his case. He has been suspended indefinitely from team activities.
One Month 'til Camp
Fall camp officially begins in 30 days. We'll try to catch up with some of the players and give you their thoughts heading into the season.
There hasn't been much news in the way of recruiting lately, but for those of you who don't follow Scout or Rivals religiously, here's how Mizzou stands:
Word on the street is that Mizzou has about 16-18 scholarships to offer this year. The Tigers already have 10 verbal commitments. This is the earliest Missouri has had this many commitments since I can remember. The headline recruits include Sheldon Richardson who was originally a 5-star player out of high school before having to go the Juco route, Corbin Berkstresser, a 6'3'' 225 lb. quarterback from Lee's Summit, cornerback Cortland Browning who is now drawing interest from teams like Florida and Oklahoma, and Columbia's own Wesley Leftwich, a wide receiver who is one of the fastest players in the nation.
Keep an eye on: Kody Walker - RB - Jefferson City
Missouri really wants the big running back (6'1'' 230 lbs.) He's not your typical Missouri-style running back, but he's the fifth highest rated player in the state according to Rivals and the nation's 29th highest rated running back. He says that his decision will likely come down to Missouri and Arkansas.
Kinsler an All-Star
Former Missouri Tiger second baseman Ian Kinsler has been named to his second MLB All-Star Game. The Rangers infielder is batting .299 with three homeruns and 26 RBI.
If the Hat fits...
The writer you came to know and love as "A Fastidious Hat," is back on board here at Mizzourah. If you haven't read his most recent post, scroll down a bit. As always, it's worth a read.
