Mizzowans are used to seeing top-rated recruits sign with the program they’ve attended for five years, but now they’ll have to wait for them to sign their scholarships.
And if you’re like me, you’ll be tempted to sign up for a scholarship, but you don’t want to leave your home state and start paying for the privilege.
But now that Mizzoo has announced it will pay a $1,000 scholarship to the top player from the state of Missouri who signs, that could change, especially if you’ve never visited the state.
The new rule, which is being enforced in the 2018 recruiting class, will apply to the 2018 class as well.
So if you live in one of the top recruiting states, but don’t have a scholarship or are not eligible for one, you could be on the hook for up to $1.5 million for the next five years.
That would be roughly the same amount of money as the $3,500 that a top player like Justin Jackson signed with the Missouri Tigers last summer, according to 247sports.com.
Jackson is the top-ranked player in the class, according the 247sports Composite rankings, and it appears his offer was a huge surprise to many Missouri fans.
The Tigers were on the verge of committing to Jackson for a massive amount of cash in March.
But it appears Jackson was still very much in the market for a new home, and the Tigers’ coaching staff decided to make the move.
Mizzoo athletic director Chris Holtmann said the move is designed to help the program become a “major destination” for the 2018 cycle, but it will also benefit the state and the football program.
“We want to be a destination for talent,” Holtmann told The Associated Press in a telephone interview.
“I want to attract great players.
We want to have great football programs.
We don’t see any problem with that.
So it is important to us.”
Holtmann said he wanted to give the program a shot in recruiting, but not for the money.
He said the new rule is designed “to help the Mazzo program become an important destination for recruits and to help us continue to build the program that has been a tremendous success in the state.”
Mizzou’s athletic department has been struggling to find high-caliber recruits, particularly with Jackson coming to town and a string of recent losses to top programs like Texas A&M, Alabama and Michigan State.
The Bulldogs are just 3-15 in the SEC West this season, including 0-4 in league play.
But they’ve made a few moves to improve their talent level, signing five players in the last year to major deals, including former Florida and Tennessee defensive lineman Jonathan Jones.
Jackson’s deal is one of a number of offers that have come from other top schools that have not yet signed.
It is the third-highest contract the Tigers have ever signed for a player, behind defensive tackle David Sharpe’s $2.5-million deal with South Carolina in 2019 and cornerback J.T. Thomas’ $2 million deal with Alabama in 2019.MISSISSAUGA, Mich.
(AP) It was a big day for a young football player in Missouri.
Jackson, the top recruit in his class at Mizzo and a two-time all-conference performer at the University of Missouri, said he was excited about the chance to sign with his home state for the 2017-18 season.
Miazelle Jackson is a defensive tackle for the Missouri football team.
She’s the No. 1 overall recruit in her class and is considered one of college football’s top defensive tackles.
Mizzawas athletic director said Monday that Jackson will receive $1 million over five years in a scholarship.
“Mizzowas commitment to this program is to continue to add talent to our football program,” Holtman said.
“We’re going to be making sure we’re going out there recruiting as hard as we can.
The commitment of this football player is not only to Missouri, but to the entire state of Michigan.
So we want to get out and play football and we want the best player in our state to be here.”
Jackson, a four-star recruit who plays quarterback at the school, told Rivals that he’s excited to play for Holtmann, who will make the decision on his eligibility as he continues to play.
“I love coach Holtmann,” Jackson said.
“He has a great background in recruiting and has a very good track record in recruiting.
He’s always recruiting the best players.”
Jackson was a two, three-star and four-year starter for the Tigers.
He played for Holt, who was head coach of the football team when he was hired in March, and he’s considered one the top defensive linemen in the country.
Jackson was one of five defensive players on the team that was the Big Ten Defensive Player
