There’s a band out there called ‘They Might Be Giants’. Have a listen. You’re never going to keep them down.

We know that they’ve been around longer than Missouri’s wide receiving class….but the guys that Gary Pinkel’s recruited might be giants, too.

Only one of the SIX wide receivers who decided to come to Columbia is play for Pinkel is under 6ft…and he’s 5 ft 10. Four-star receiver DeSean Blair – the pick of the bunch (who actually committed to Louisville before deciding he wanted to play in the SEC– is 6 ft 4, while Dorial Green-Beckham’s brother, Darnell, is 6 ft 5 (Important question: What does Mrs Green-Beckham feed her kids, and could we have some?).

Missouri fans are definitely excited about OL Andy Bauer, who de-committed from Ole Miss to come play for Pinkel. Bauer’s from St Louis, so it was hardly the country’s most surprising decisions. Bauer, who was recruited by everybody, was described as the ‘gem of the 2014 recruiting class’. ¬†And the gem could start as early as this season. Whatever happens, Bauer should¬†shore up the offensive line for QB Maty Mauk, who’s one of a handful of sure-fire SEC QB starters who’ll get reps this Spring.

Missouri was 39th in the 24-7 rankings, and 33rd with ESPN.
