Eli Drinkwitz praises development of former QB Shawn Robinson as a playmaking defender
Eli Drinkwitz and the Missouri Tigers are searching for answers on the defensive side of the ball.
One bright spot has been QB-turned-DB Shawn Robinson, who had 1 interception against Boston College this past weekend and had another bounce off his hands.
During his Tuesday press conference, Drinkwitz had nothing but positive things to say about Robinson’s development:
“I’ve been blown away at what he’s been able to do and how quickly he’s been able to do it,” he said. “He’s playing a lot of football for us, a lot of different positions … and he’s still making a lot of plays. … I’m extremely proud of him and what he’s doing to help our football team.”
Robinson has become a key contributor in the Mizzou secondary, which has fared much better than the run defense.
We’ll see if the former quarterback continues to make big plays for the Tiger defense.
