It has been nearly a month since wide receiver Dimetrios Mason was kicked off the Missouri football team. And now, for the first time since his dismissal, Mason has spoken out on his departure from the Tigers:
My time at the zoo has been a good experience.I will miss my brothers a lot but we all have a path and this just isn’t the way for me to go.

In his brief stint in the program, Mason was one of the team’s more dynamic playmakers and an All-SEC freshman performer in 2016. However, Emanuel Hall has emerged as a premier deep threat in his stead, with five touchdowns since taking over for Mason earlier this month.
It has not been the best week for Barry Odom’s Tigers, despite snapping the team’s five-game losing streak against Idaho last weekend. The Tigers had multiple decommitments from its 2018 class: safety Cam Taylor, and, most notably, quarterback James Foster.
Mizzou will look to turn that momentum around tonight as they travel to Connecticut to take on the Huskies.
