Missouri lands commitment from Big Sky offensive lineman, 20-game starter
Just more than a week after Montana State offensive lineman, and starting tackle, Connor Wood entered the transfer portal, he’s found a home in the SEC.
He committed to Missouri on Thursday, and tweeted that, “I’m very excited to announce that I can fulfill my life long dream of playing at Mizzou in the SEC.” Soon after he entered the transfer portal, Wood announced that he had offers from Missouri and Indiana. The 6-foot-5, 300-pound Idaho native graduated from Montana State this spring. The Bobcats have a new coach in Brent Vigen.
Wood was a key cog on Bobcats’ offensive line, starting 20 games over two seasons. He earned freshman All-American honors in 2018 and then sophomore All-American honors in 2019 in his two years with the program, according to MontanaSports.com.
He was listed as the starting left tackle after Montana State’s spring practice, and the graduate transfer has two years of eligibility remaining. He primarily played right tackle the last two seasons. He redshirted, then missed four games late in the 2019 season due to injury, according to 406MTNSports.
