Jack Abraham, former Mississippi State QB, commits to SEC East program
Jack Abraham is on to his fourth college team as the former Louisiana Tech, Southern Miss and Mississippi State QB has landed with a new SEC team.
Abraham explained his decision to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Abraham, Southern Miss’ starter from 2018-20, will initially join Mizzou as a walk-on with a chance to earn a scholarship for the 2022 season, his seventh season in college football.
“Whether or not (a scholarship) works out, that’s not what I’m coming for,” Abraham said. “I’m coming for the opportunity to compete and play at the next level. So that’s the opportunity I was given. I think it’s the best decision that I’ve made up to this point. I’m fired up.”
Abraham said the message from Mizzou coaches was clear: “They’re looking for a guy to come in with experience,” he said.
The Tigers have searched for much of the spring for another quarterback to add to the roster to compete alongside Brady Cook, Tyler Macon and incoming freshman Sam Horn.
Mizzou has been connected to several QB transfers, either in terms of a visit or reported interest, including Arizona State’s Jayden Daniels, who chose LSU; Georgia’s J.T. Daniels (West Virginia); and Baylor’s Gerry Bohanon (South Florida).
