Mizzou lands 4-star recruit
by MizzMatt 7/7/11
FOOTBALL- He's not a household name in Missouri, yet, but he very well could be in the near future. Maty Mauk (Kenton, OH), a 4-star caliber quarterback from Ohio has verbally committed to Mizzou. He's currently on pace to break his older brother's high school records, and is listed in the ESPN 150. His announcement came earlier this morning, with Gabe DeArmond of PowerMizzou.com reporting the his intent on Twitter (we all know how accurate Twitter is, but multiple sources confirm it's legit).

Mauk's numbers through four years (record in parentheses):
  • 13,519 yards passing (17,634)
  • 151 passing TDs (178)
  • 1,981 rushing yards
  • 35 rushing TD
  • 15,500 yards and 186 TDs total offense
Even an average season and he'll surpass his brother, Ben Mauk.

Mauk also has reportedly made friends with one of the nation's top wide receivers and Missouri native, Dorial Green-Beckham (Hilcrest, MO). So far, Mizzou is low on DGB's interest list, as he is eying Auburn and Oklahoma, but with the capture of Mauk (and with Mauk's befriending him), Mizzou may earn a second look from the 6'6, 230-lb phenom who's landed 4,102 yards and 51 TDs in three years, as well as double-lettering in basketball.

GYMNASTICS- Rebecca Johnson (Waukesha, WI) commits to Mizzou after playing volleyball for her Pewaukee High School team as well as competing in level 10 gymnastics since 2007.

Watch Lists:
Biletnikoff- The award for the best receiver in the country, and the Tigers' T.J. Moe is on the list. Last year's 1,045-yard performance is going to be built upon as this reliable receiver will be on the receiving end of sophomore QB James Franklin.
Bednarik- The award for best defender has LB Zavier Gooden on the watch list, which surprises most experts, but not Mizzou fans. Gooden has been relatively under the radar, but gained attention when he snagged a key interception last year against Oklahoma.
Mackey- The award for best TE in the country, previously won by Mizzou's Chase Coffman, contains current TE Michael Egnew. Egnew was second on the team in receiving last year behind Moe, and finished in the top five of 2010 Mackey voting.
