The departures are piling up for Missouri.
A day after redshirt junior running back Chase Abbington left the team, coach Barry Odom announced that junior offensive lineman Malik Cuellar has also quit the team , according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Dave Matter.
“He decided football was not going to be in his future,” Odom said, according to Matter.
Cuellar joined the Tigers last season after beginning his career at City College of San Francisco. The Fortuna, Calif., native played in eight games last season and mainly served as a backup left tackle. His departure leaves Mizzou with just eight scholarship players along the offensive line.
