Eli Drinkwitz provides update on grad transfer QB Jack Abraham
Eli Drinkwitz and Missouri gained the services of quarterback Jack Abraham during the offseason.
Abraham signed with Louisiana Tech in 2016 and redshirted, but he later transferred to Southern Miss from the JUCO ranks and became one of the top signal-callers in Conference USA before being hampered by injury in 2020. He then transferred to Mississippi State, but after suffering a concussion and a face laceration during a helmet-less drill in June 2021, he was diagnosed with post-concussion syndrome and never played a down for the Bulldogs.
However, he was granted a medical redshirt and successfully filed for a 7th year of eligibility, which he is spending with Mizzou. On Monday, Drinkwitz updated the status of Abraham, and it was encouraging news.
“He appears healthy, looks to be healthy and ready to go for fall camp,” he said, according to the Clarion-Ledger. “He’s got a lot of wisdom. He’s had a lot of experience playing college football. He understands the process of being in a quarterback battle. This is not new for him.”
It remains to be seen how much time on the field Abraham will see in 2022, but the good news is that he has recovered well enough to fight for the starting role.
