Nathaniel Peat is no dummy. He went to Stanford, after all.

He’s also a Columbia, Missouri, native who watched what coach Eli Drinkwitz has done with Larry Rountree III and Tyler Badie the past 2 seasons.

As you can see below, the Missouri Twitter account officially announced the addition of Peat on Tuesday afternoon:

Peat appeared in 12 games for the Cardinal in 2021, leading the team with 404 rushing yards. He also had 3 touchdowns. He was a kickoff return specialist, too, averaging 24.6 yards per return.

With Badie moving on to the NFL Draft, the Tigers have the need for a feature running back. Can Peat win the job? We’ll find out starting this spring!
