Heading into the 2020 season, Kam Scott was expected to compete for a starting wide receiver spot on the Missouri offense. However, it appears that he will not be with the team after entering the transfer portal, an MU spokesman confirmed.

Scott is the second player to enter the transfer portal since Drinkwitz’s hiring, along with cornerback Christian Holmes. The Texas product tallied 328 receiving yards for the Tigers last season.

According to online court records, Scott was charged with four misdemeanors, possession of marijuana, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, operating a vehicle on the highway without a valid license and speeding. The arrest occurred Feb. 1.

Scott is no longer listed on Missouri’s online roster, but was listed earlier in the day on Friday.

Despite losing Scott, the Tigers picked up four receivers in their 2020 class. Drinkwitz added graduate transfer Damon Hazelton Jr. from Virginia Tech and freshman J.J. Hester, Jay Maclin and Kris Abrams-Draine.
