Two new faces will be joining the Missouri football team next season.
Running back Alex Ross and offensive lineman Darvis Holmes are officially Tigers, the school announced Wednesday.
Ross comes to Missouri from Oklahoma where he rushed for 786 yards and five touchdowns in three years with the Sooners. He had two 100-yard rushing performances as a Sooner, including one in 2015, when he rushed 14 times for 103 yards in a blowout win over Kansas. Ross’ other 100-yard outing came in 2014 against Iowa State. He will be able to play immediately for the Tigers.
The Oklahoma transfer will likely compete with rising junior Ish Witter for the starting job. Witter rushed for 518 yards and one touchdown in 12 games.
Holmes graduated from Long County High School (Hinesville, Ga.) last month and was rated as the nation’s No. 14 offensive tackle and the state of Georgia’s No. 12 player, according to 247Sports.
