Missouri Head Football Coach Eliah Drinkwitz is confirming that wide receiver Dominic Gicinto has left the program and entered the NCAA Transfer Portal.
The loss of Gicinto dropped Mizzou’s total number of eligible scholarship players to 54.
SEC guidelines set a minimum of 53 scholarship players to play during the pandemic, however teams can elect to play with fewer.
Coach Drink has not reported any additional COVID-19 cases from Mizzou’s Tuesday test results.
The team has one more round of testing today (Thursday).
The Tigers are set to travel to South Carolina to face the Gamecocks on Saturday.
The St. Louis Cardinals added their 4th ranked prospect, Ivan Herrera, to the 40-man roster yesterday (Wednesday).
The move protects Herrera from the Rule 5 Draft this year.
The Rule 5 Draft requires players who sign at age 18 or younger must be added to the 40-man rosters within five seasons or they become eligible to be drafted by other organizations.
Many people within the Cardinals organization believe Herrera will be the teams future catcher.
