Eli Drinkwitz has been very clear on his mindset heading into Fall camp regarding who’s Mizzou’s next QB entering the season. He will give all QB’s a chance to win the job. The goal is to be patient and see if Sam Horn actually plays for Mizzou or if he will enter the MLB next season.
Brady Cook and Tyler Macon return from last year’s team and are competing for the job alongside Horn and Southern Mississippi transfer Jack Abraham, who committed in May as a walk-on.
“Those four guys will be the guys and we’ll see which one comes out as the starter sooner rather than later,” Drinkwitz said Thursday. The quarterback room will have lots of talent but only one person can be the starter.
One thing that will be clear on August 1st is if Sam Horn’s will be playing football for Mizzou or baseball in MLB.
“I’m not naive that Sam is going to have a difficult choice in front of him in mid-July,” Drinkwitz said. “He is an unbelievable baseball player with the ability to get drafted. I’ve met with his family and him and we believe that he has an unbelievable future here as both a football player and baseball player. “I’m also not naive to the fact that he could choose to pursue a career in the major leagues.”
The next few weeks are going to determine who’s Mizzou’s next QB how much depth they will have at that position entering the season. The quarterback position play has historically been the the defining factor on how successful a season is.
