Second Missouri defensive back has entered NCAA transfer portal since end of spring practice
For the second time since the conclusion of spring practice in Columbia, a Missouri defensive back has entered the NCAA transfer portal.
This time, it’s senior Jarvis Ware that has entered the portal according to Rivals Portal. Ware appeared in five games last season after appearing in 10 during the 2019 season for Mizzou.
The other defensive back to leave Mizzou this offseason was Jadarrius Perkins. Perkins signed with Missouri rated as the No. 1 junior college cornerback prospect in the 2021 recruiting cycle. After taking some first-team reps during spring camp, Perkins made the decision to leave Columbia after camp ended.
Perkins recently announced his decision to continue his college career at Florida.
Here is Ware’s most recent post on Twitter, which may be relevant following news of his decision to enter the transfer portal.
Gotta believe in yourself before somebody else will !

Here is Ware’s bio which is listed on the official Missouri team page:
Took over the full-time starting job at one of Mizzou’s two cornerback spot and tallied 33 tackles during his true sophomore season … Also put four pass breakups on his ledger and was outstanding in a widely expanded role as a sophomore … Of his 33 tackles, 24 were solo … Played in 11 of 12 games with 10 starts, missing only the West Virginia game due to injury (9/7) … Posted a career-high seven tackles (five solo) at Georgia (11/9) … Had six tackles (all solo) at Florida (11/16), giving him 13 tackles over back-to-back games against top-10 opponents … Had five tackles (all solo) against Troy (10/5).
Talented young defender who saw the field in 10 games on the season, getting his first taste of action as a collegian … Tallied six tackles on the season as he received more playing time throughout the course of the year … Made a pair of tackles in MU’s big win at Tennessee down the stretch, and added one tackle each in the win over Arkansas, as well as the 2018 Liberty Bowl against Oklahoma State.
