Burroughs super-star running back Ezekiel Elliott just returned from a whirlwind 24-hours at Mizzou. All along, his word was he was going to take his talents to Columbus, Ohio and The Ohio State University Buckeyes.
Friday night, departing Westminster Christian Academy's gym, Elliott put it this way: "They are still my state school, and I'm going down there to give them a chance."
The worm could be turning. Ohio State brought in a last-minute prospect, just in case Zeke bolts for Columbia.
The visit went very well. The crowd at the Mizzou Arena for the Vanderbilt game rocked the house with M-I-Z-E-Z-E. The Burroughs back got the message. Both his parents lettered in sports at Mizzou. His dad Elliott played football for the Tigers.
Jeremy Maclin was headed to Oklahoma before he ended up at Mizzou. Same went for Blaine Gabbert who spurned Nebraska for the Tigers. Time will tell about this one.
