Mizzou Football Camp Day 6: No More O-Line Musical Chairs

Posted by Brandon Kiley on August 11, 2015

Good morning from Mizzou fall football camp, day six. The team is currently on the practice field getting team work done, but we were able to watch the first 45 minutes or so of practice.

 

NEWS & NOTES:

 

Mizzou received a commitment from a junior college cornerback yesterday. Here’s the twist — this JuCo commit will be immediately eligible.

 

As was first reported by Gabe DeArmond at PowerMizzou, three-star cornerback Anthony Hines from the College of San Mateo will enroll in classes this fall and will be eligible to contribute immediately for the Tigers.

 

Hines is 6-foot-3-inches and is listed at 180 pounds. His scouting report is similar to current Mizzou starting cornerback Kenya Dennis. It’s another sign that Missouri has a new “type” of cornerback that they are recruiting.

 

Missouri’s average cornerback as recently as five years ago was 5-foot-10-inches and weighed somewhere around 180 pounds. The quickest way to describe the change is that Missouri’s cornerbacks now pass the “eyeball test.” Kenya Dennis, Aarion Penton, John Gibson, etc. are all taller, stronger, faster and are more physically imposing than we’ve seen from Tiger cornerbacks in the past. This transition coincides with Barry Odom’s new defensive philosophy that requires more physical, press-man coverage out of its cornerbacks.

  As is tradition at Mizzou fall football camp, the safeties led the pre-practice dance. Today was the safeties’ turn. They went with the Cupid Shuffle & were promptly booed by their teammates.

  The cornerbacks got a lot of work in with coach Cornell Ford. They were working on shedding blocks & getting over a chop block, specifically.
