As one of the hottest teams on the recruiting trail, the momentum is sky high for Missouri and coach Eli Drinkwitz. That is already paying dividends in the way of season ticket sales.

Mizzou reported an eye-popping 150 percent increase in season ticket sales compared year-to-date from 2019 levels.

Fans have no doubt watched Drinkwitz and his staff land recent commitments from a pair of 4-star recruits over the weekend. Drinkwitz secured a pledge from the No. 1 recruit in Nebraska, 4-star offensive lineman Deshawn Woods. Similarly, 4-star Texas running back Tavorus Jones picked Mizzou over SEC schools like Alabama, Auburn, Florida and in-state Texas A&M. After signing Mizzou’s highest-rated class in six years, Drinkwitz has as much momentum as any recent Mizzou coach.

Woods was the sixth 4-star commit of the Tigers’ 11-man 2022 class.

Earlier this summer, Drinkwitz said fan support would help in a big way.

“It needs to be 70k there,” Drinkwitz said on 590 The Fan, per Matt Rocchio. “Regardless whether you’re excited about what were doing, we owe it to this state…Nothing’s going to get somebody to want to flip from another school more than our fan base…If we do that, then in-state recruiting is like shooting fish in a barrel.”
