A Missouri quarterback is the latest entry to the already crowded transfer portal. Sophomore Connor Bazelak announced on Dec. 23 that he’s transferring from the program.
Bazelak started in 11 games for the Tigers during the 2021 campaign. His announcement comes a day after Missouri’s season ended in the Armed Forces Bowl.

“This has been a tough decision that I have been thinking about for the last several weeks, but I wanted to be available for my team one last time in the bowl game,” Bazelak said on Twitter. “After much prayer and discussion with my family, I have decided to enter the transfer portal to continue my academic and athletic career.”
Bazelak was the SEC co-freshman of the Year in 2020. The 6-foot-3, 212-pound Bazelak didn’t play in the Armed Forces Bowl due to a leg injury.
Bazelak tallied 2,548 yards, 16 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions this season. For his career, Bazelak has amassed 5,058 yards, 23 touchdowns, and 17 interceptions.
The Ohio native will have two remaining years of eligibility.
Missouri lost 24-22 to Army to conclude its season with a 6-7 record.
