If Lock returns to Missouri, coach Barry Odom should have a team that could contend for the SEC East title with a potential Heisman candidate under center.
In the team’s New Year’s Eve win over Alabama, star junior Sophie Cunningham went down with a knee injury and was clearly in a lot of pain.
Despite that, the Tigers still signed an impressive class and should get immediate help from a number of freshmen, including pitcher Lauren Rice, who could help combat some of the team’s pitching issues.
Earleywine’s contract expires after this season and a big year could help his case for a better extension, which he’s optimistic will come from athletic director Jim Sterk.
Odom has addressed a number of depth concerns with some early signings, but can he add a few impact guys in the final month to get the Tigers’ class into Top 30 territory?
