Maclin Makes Comeback
Chase Daniel threw 28 touchdowns to seven different receivers last season, but if redshirt freshman Jeremy Maclin hadn't injured his knee before the season started, it might have been eight.
"This is exactly what I ran in high school, so I'm kind of used to it. I just feel like my skills are perfect for this offense, like what I can do on the field," said Missouri freshman receiver Jeremy Maclin.
But even after missing all of last season, at least one teammate knows that sitting out has taught Maclin a lot.
"You know, him being so young, and missing a year, he learned a lot, as far as the dimensions of the game, and you can tell he's ready to take that step this year," said Missouri junior receiver William Franklin.
And while working out at spring practice, Maclin isn't holding anything back.
"I mean I do everything without hesitation, so, I mean anybody is prone to, anybody can get injured at anytime, so I kind of look at it like that, I don't look at myself at a disadvantage or anything," said Maclin.
And Maclin isn't just a receiver. The Tigers have him working out at punt and kick returner as well. The Tigers' first game is in Maclin's hometown, St. Louis, against the University of Illinois.
