I wasn't aware he had a vulnerability to injury. Are you thinking of the other Porter?

Oh yes, I am actually. I just spoke to dad - I was thinking he meant Michael - Okay it all makes sense now. I hadn't researched it yet. My error.

Any chance of freeing up Vanleer's scholarship, or are we stuck with that mess?

Hoping for a "medical retirement" situation.

Another positive of hopefully not having a down year is the fucking SEC likely won't exclude us from the SEC/Big 12 challenge again.

Cullen VanLeer has medically retired and freed up a scholarship.

Also, McKinney and Liddell both visited over the weekend. McKinney cancelled his visit to Kansas State to visit Mizzou with Liddell, and there is hope he could commit soon. We need the help with Liddell, because Ohio State is rumored to be the favorite.

I was pretty excited when I first heard the news until I remembered that CVL is a senior and was almost certainly not going to play this season anyway. He was set to graduate so it's extremely unlikely Mizzou would've sought to medically redshirt him (and as a graduate, I don't think he had any basis to compel them to).

So since they really can't use the scholarship for this season anyway other than some kind of strange transfer case popping up that may be eligible in the spring and it was going to free up next season anyway, there's no real gain.

As for recruiting - Cuonzo's coming up a bit short this cycle. If he gets McKinney and Liddell that's a nice foundation but those appear to be the only 2 players the Tigers are even presently in on. I'm sure there's someone under the radar but it's unlikely to be a major piece.

Losing on Watts as abruptly as we did and then Tray Jackson (who seemed like a done deal) took a lot of momentum from this class and if he doesn't get McKinney and Liddell inked, the class will fall to shit in a hurry.

True. I'm confident we'll get McKinney, but if we don't also get Liddell we will likely end up with an extremely disappointing class. I hope that isn't the case, because we should expect more from Cuonzo Martin as a recruiter.
