Harrison Mevis sends message to Missouri fans about 2024 season
Harrison Mevis is moving on after a memorable Mizzou career.
Mevis was lights out on field goals this season, hitting game-winners against Kansas State and Florida earlier in the year. Missouri fans will remember his 61-yarder to lift the Tigers over the Wildcats for quite some time. He made a conference-leading 24 field goals, earning second-team All-SEC recognition.
Here’s what he had to say about the decision:
“First and foremost, I would like to thank God for giving me the ability to play the sport that I love. My years at Mizzou have been filled with so many incredible moments that I will cherish forever. I want to thank Coach Drinkwitz for believing in me,” said Mevis. “I am blessed to have played for this great university for the last 4 years. I also want to thank all the coaches and strength staff who have been a part of my journey. … But with that being said, I am excited to see what the future holds for me. I am proud to announce that I will be declaring for the 2024 NFL Draft!”
Missouri will miss having a reliable leg in special teams like Mevis, who had the option of returning in 2024. The Tigers capped off the 2023 season with a win over Ohio State in the Cotton Bowl.
Forever a Tiger! ?
