Heading into the 2018 season, the Missouri Tigers are returning several key players to their high-powered offense, including QB Drew Lock, RB Damarea Crockett and WR Emanuel Hall.

With so many weapons on that side of the ball, it’s an embarrassment of riches, and now Lock — a legitimate Heisman contender — is excited to work with a new weapon.

According to KansasCity.com, Lock is raving about graduate transfer WR Alex Ofodile, the son of Mizzou WR coach A.J. Ofodile:

 “He’s really long, has a lot of ability when the ball’s not in his frame to reach out and get it, which is huge,” Lock said. “I think he’s a deer when he runs. He’s got really long strides. He doesn’t look freaky fast, but he’s gaining ground on defenders. I think he’ll help us out a lot.”

Ofodile only had three catches for 23 yards for the Ducks last season, but figures to get some more playing time as a redshirt junior this fall.

As a graduate transfer, Ofodile can play right away, and it’ll be exciting to see what he can do while working with a quarterback like Lock.
