Indiana 3-star athlete Phillip Roche signs up for Mizzou Football

Indiana 3-star athlete Phillip Roche signs up for Mizzou Football

It’s always a little worrying when Mizzou’s coach Eli Drinkwitz sends its famous Bat Signal in the middle of the afternoon, then you hear crickets for about 18 hours. But we knew that moment was coming, it was just a matter of who the tweet was about.

This morning we learned that the Merrilville, Indiana athlete and 3-star safety prospect announced he was signing up for the Tigers.

Hometown: Merrillville, Indiana

High school: Merrillville HS

Position: Athlete / Defensive back

Height/Weight: 6’1 / 190

Ranking of rivals: 3 stars, 5.6

247 Composite ranking: 3 stars, 0.8400

Total offers announced: 13

Offers to note: Cincinnati, Indiana, Nebraska, Purdue

I’ll let someone else far better than me at rating high school football video tell you about his skills on the gridiron.

Roche is the third defensive prospect to be added to this class, including draft corner Shamar McNeil of Plantation, FL and Nick DeLoach of Cahokia. A secondary held by Roche and DeLoach would be fun but, as we know, projected positions and actual positions don’t always line up. Either way, it looks like that staff is still looking to stockpile a secondary – which has worked incredibly well this year – with extra pieces when offensive line additions have been minimal so far. It will be interesting to see how scholarship management plays out in the future with respect to high school vs. signatories. portal add-ons.

Anyway, welcome to Mizzou, Phillip! Be awesome!
