I would hesitate in calling anyone a frontrunner. He has kept his recruiting pretty quiet. I would not rule Mizzou out. MU's staff was hopeful as of a few days ago.
I don't really have time to go over the details here. A quick Google search should provide the answer. A lot of people who are more qualified to cover that story have written about it extensively.
I can't speak for the recruiting rankings. This much I know: Mizzou's staff was recruiting Kaleb as early if not earlier than they were recruiting Kobe. Remember, Kobe had committed and signed with Texas A&M before the head-coaching change in College Station. But Martin's staff had been well aware of Kaleb before then. They like his versatility. I never got the impression the staff was worried about Kobe leaving.
He's absolutely committed to this style going forward and is using it as part of his sales pitch with recruits. Mizzou dabbled with the change in the middle of last season when Tilmon got hurt and then re-invested in that style full-time during the offseason. The change in approach was underscored by the way Mizzou played against Alabama. Against the fastest team in the SEC, Mizzou wanted to play even faster.
Jumping jobs within the same conference isn't the rare part necessarily. But jumping from one Power 5 league to another seems to be becoming more rare.
Yes, he plays professionally in Germany.
I'm loyal to the Logboat guys, but I do like the Green Chile beer at Flat Branch.
I just think he'd like to play more minutes and that wasn't going to happen at Mizzou.
Yep, great choice. One of my favorites.
I'll write a couple things a week for sure.
Illinois had a better body of work for sure and won a conference championship - in a better conference.
I think you're referring to the black/gray rectangle that the staff places behind the play signals so the players on the field can see the signs more clearly.
He still transferred from one Division I program to another, and under the current rules, he'd have to sit out a year whether he played or not.
OK, folks. I've got to run. We'll do this again next week. Thanks for taking part.
