One of college football’s most feared defensive fronts took a big hit today. As the St. Louis Post-Dispatch was first to report, linemen Walter Brady and Harold Brantley are no longer with the Missouri football team.
Brady, a freshman All-American a season ago, was dismissed due to a violation of team rules. Brantley, who was an All-SEC selection back in 2014, is academically ineligible for the upcoming season. Brantley missed all of last season recovering from a car accident.
The Mizzou defensive line still boasts a wealth of talent, including All-American candidate Charles Harris, and former 5-star recruit Terry Beckner Jr., but to call Brantley and Brady mere quality depth, would be a gross understatement.
Barry Odom’s team is set to begin camp tomorrow in Columbia.
Don’t forget the Big 550 KTRS is your radio home for Mizzou football this season. The first game is September 3rd at West Virginia. Kick-off at 11 am.
