There’s no way Missouri could replace Nick Bolton next season given all that he meant to the program but the Tigers did just pick up a player that comes with plenty of accolades of his own right.

On Monday, Rice graduate transfer Blaze Alldredge announced his decision to finish out his college career at Mizzou:

“I’d like to thank the coaches & fans that have reached out to me since I’ve entered the transfer portal. At this time though I am ecstatic to announce that I have received an offer and will be committing to play for the Mizzou Tigers. Let’s go!”

If you aren’t familiar with his game, Alldredge racked up 214 tackles, 29 tackles for loss, six sacks and two interceptions during his three seasons at Rice. That production comes despite the fact Rice played in just five games last season.

During the 2019 season, Alldredge accounted for 102 tackles, 21.5 tackles for loss and four sacks.

For his efforts, Alldredge was twice honored as a First-Team All-Conference USA selection. He was also a team captain at Rice in addition to making the C-USA Football All-Academic in 2019 and 2020 and was the Rice Scholar-Athlete of the season last fall.

Alldredge began his college career at junior college Los Angeles Pierce College and has one season of eligibility remaining due to the NCAA giving all players the option to use 2020 as a free season of eligibility.
