Mizzou football adds four players in four days

Columbia Daily
Missouri head football coach Eliah Drinkwitz has added four players to his program since last Thursday.

Missouri football stayed hot on the recruiting trail over the weekend.

Graduate transfer receiver Keke Chism announced Saturday that he is transferring to the Tigers from Division II Angelo State, where he was the leading receiver this past season.

Three-star linebacker Dameon Wilson then pledged to MU on Sunday as part of its Class of 2021.

Their commitments follow junior college defensive end Shemar Pearl and three-star linebacker Zachary Lovett, who announced their intentions to join the Tigers’ 2021 class last Thursday and Friday, respectively.

MU has added four players to its program in four days after coach Eliah Drinkwitz remarked last Wednesday about a short-lived recruiting lull.

Chism, a 6-foot-4, 210-pound wideout, recently entered the NCAA transfer portal after a season in which he totaled 878 yards receiving on 60 receptions with six touchdowns.

The Daingerfield, Texas, product, was named to the Lone Star Conference first team in 2019.

Chism is expected to be eligible to play his final collegiate season in 2020.

Wilson, a 6-foot-1, 210-pound inside linebacker from Kings Mountain, North Carolina, becomes the 14th member of the Tigers’ Class of 2021, with 247Sports.com rating Wilson as the third-best prospect in the MU recruiting class so far.

Wilson picked Missouri over Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina and a host of other offers.

Missouri’s 2021 class now ranks 30th in the nation and eighth in the Southeastern Conference, according to 247Sports.com.
