WR Keke Chism
Keke Chism was a transfer wide receiver who formerly played for Angelo State of Division ll and was not a huge name on the transfer market but head coach Eliah Drinkwitz made him a late addition to the team and was very high on him prior to the season and even claimed he had NFL potential in addition to calling him “A freakin’ stud”.
Chism started out very slow and almost appeared to be a disappointment in 2020 as he only had 64 receiving yards through the first three games for Mizzou. After Connor Bazelak became the clear starter at quarterback, though, and Chism had more time to get acclimated, he would end up finding his stride and finished the year with a team-leading 458 receiving yards.
While Chism’s stats aren’t eye-popping and he will definitely need to produce more next year to raise his stock, Chism showed great contested catch ability and was able to easily get separation as time went on. You could really start to see the NFL potential that Drinkwitz raved about as time progressed. Another year learning the offense with a normal offseason and getting a chance to develop chemistry with Connor Bazelak, Chism could turn out to be a decent NFL prospect with potential as a possession receiver.
