Elliott decides to leave Mizzou for NFL draft

COLUMBIA, Mo. — Barry Odom isn’t the only one leaving the Missouri football program. A day after the Tigers fired their coach, defensive tackle Jordan Elliott announced he’s making himself available for the NFL draft instead of returning to MU for his senior season.

“It has been an amazing three years at Missouri,” Elliott posted on Twitter Sunday. “I want to thank God for teammates for pushing me and continuously holding me accountable, Coach (Barry) Odom, Coach (Brick) Haley and the staff for molding me and teaching me lessons that I will take with me for the rest of my life.
