Missouri tight end Max Whisner declared his intent to hit the transfer portal on Tuesday.

Whisner played in 2 games in the last couple of seasons with Missouri. He saw action in the Memphis game earlier this year. Whisner leaves Columbia with 3 years of eligibility left.

Whisner was grateful for Eli Drinkwitz and the friendships that were made along the way.

“I’d like to thank Coach Drinkwitz and the entire staff for including me as a part of this family,” said Whisner. “I have developed lifelong friendships that I will always cherish. No one could ask for better teammates than what I have experienced at Mizzou. That being said, I have decided to embark on a new journey. I will be entering the transfer portal with 3 remaining years of eligibility.”

Whisner was a former 3-star recruit and homegrown talent out of Lee’s Summit (Mo.) High. The 247Sports Composite ranked him as the No. 41 TE and No. 16 Missouri prospect in the 2022 class.

At the end of the day, Whisner struggled to find playing time behind Brett Norfleet and Tyler Stephens at the TE position for Missouri. The Tigers have 3-star commit Whit Hafer on the way via the 2024 class.

Whisner will be heading elsewhere in 2024.
