Missouri fans are hoping freshman quarterback Micah Wilson can bring some stability and maybe three or four years of steady play to the position.
Tigers fans haven’t really had a quarterback they’ve been in love with since Chase Daniel became one of the best players in the program’s history right on the heels of another great in Brad Smith a decade ago.
Wilson has deep roots in the program and he grew up rooting for the Tigers. His father, Curtis, was an offensive lineman and team captain in 1988 and he shared some evidence on Twitter of his son’s long-standing affinity for the Tigers.

Yes, that’s a young Micah Wilson visiting a practice and having his picture taken with Daniel when he was the starter in Columbia. If Wilson can reach his potential, that photo could be one many Tigers fans will be sharing in the coming years.
Wilson was the Oklahoma Class 3A Player of the Year as a senior in high school. He threw for 8,751 career passing yards and 120 touchdowns. He has a solid foundation and the pedigree but etching his name in the Missouri record books along with Daniel will be decidedly tougher in the SEC.
