COLUMBIA, Mo. — Two weeks into what could be the busiest recruiting month in modern college football history, Missouri’s Eli Drinkwitz hasn’t wasted any time.
The NCAA lifted its lengthy recruiting dead period on June 1, and since then Mizzou has hosted 20 high-priority prospects on campus for a one-day event, secured two immediately eligible commitments at positions of need and flipped a four-star high school recruit from a Southeastern Conference power. Oh, and the Tigers still are in the thick of the competition for the nation’s No. 1-rated wide receiver.
It’s been quite a June for Drinkwitz.
