Eli Drinkwitz discusses addition of Jack Abraham, Mizzou's QB battle
Eli Drinkwitz and the Missouri Tigers looked into adding a big-name transfer QB this offseason, showing interest in JT Daniels, Jayden Daniels and Gerry Bohanon at various points.
Eventually, the Tigers landed former Southern Miss and Mississippi State QB Jack Abraham via the transfer portal.
During his media availability at SEC spring meetings on Tuesday, Drinkwitz discussed what Abraham brings to the Mizzou QB room (via the Daily Journal):
“Jack became a possibility for us. Our QB room has two younger guys in it, and we’re looking for someone with some experience,” Drinkwitz said.
“In our first six games, we have three on the road in really difficult environments … Manhattan, Kansas; Auburn, Alabama; and Gainesville, Florida. We wanted to have some experience in that room.”
When asked if any quarterbacks had an edge in the battle to be QB1 this fall, Drinkwitz simply said “no.”
Will Abraham manage to win the job when fall camp opens? We’ll see how the Mizzou QB battle plays out over the next few months.
