Report: 4 SEC teams have contacted Mizzou about potential transfers in wake of NCAA sanctions
The Missouri Tigers received a postseason ban for the 2019 season in the wake of a scandal involving a tutor from several years ago.
Though coach Barry Odom and the Mizzou administration are fighting the seemingly harsh punishment, they’re in a precarious position, as other teams could poach rising seniors who wouldn’t get to play in the postseason.
According to a report from Dave Matter of STLToday.com, four SEC teams have already called the Mizzou athletics department to try to inquire about potential transfers:
Auburn, Mississippi State, Tennessee and Texas A&M have inquired about Mizzou seniors who could be eligible for NCAA waivers to play at another school immediately without having to sit out a year.
The report also states that Georgia coach Kirby Smart called Odom to say that he wouldn’t poach any players from the Missouri roster.
The Tigers will try to appeal the decision, but unless something happens soon, players will have to at least consider a move.
