Missouri officially welcomes Division II transfer Keke Chism, former First-Team All-Conference selection
The offseason overhaul of Missouri’s offense under first-year head coach Eli Drinkwitz continues this week as former Angelo State standout receiver Keke Chism has officially been added to the Tigers’ roster.
Mizzou announced the news on Tuesday following news of Chism’s commitment to the program, which was first announced over the weekend.
The former Division II player was Angelo State’s leading receiver the previous two seasons and is coming off a First-Team Lone Star Conference selection after hauling in 60 receptions with 878 receiving yards and six scores. During his sophomore season at Angelo State, Chism had 959 receiving yards and another half dozen touchdowns.
Chism will be eligible immediately for Missouri this fall, as the same transfer rules that apply when a player travels down a level of competition as when they transfer up a level of competition.
Of course, Chism isn’t the only transfer receiver to join the Mizzou program this offseason as Virginia Tech’s leading receiver from last season, Damon Hazelton Jr. has joined the program to help bolster a position group that also features juniors Jalen Knox and Barrett Banister.
