As teams tend to do this time of year, Missouri appears to be reshaping its roster heading into the spring semester. Sometimes that can mean players are leaving town, and that appears to be the case for a pair of Tigers offensive players.
According to a report from Power Mizzou’s Gabe DeArmond, running back Ryan Williams and wide receiver DeSean Blair are not going to return to the Tigers football program for the spring semester. There are no immediate indications of alternative plans for either player reported.
According to sources RB Ryan Williams and WR DeSean Blair will not return to #Mizzou football team this semester.

The news comes just two days after it was revealed that Tigers offensive lineman Tanner Owen also would not return to the team.
Williams, who was a redshirt freshman in 2016, appeared in just one game last season. He carried the ball nine times for 51 yards in a win against Delaware State. He was rated the No. 9 player in the state of Missouri coming out of Lee’s Summit West High back in 2015.
Blair logged just two catches for 25 yards during his sophomore season in 2016.
