Missouri wide receiver Eric Laurent spoke with reporters on Saturday.

COLUMBIA, Mo. — Eric Laurent arrived at the University of Missouri as a walk-on quarterback. Now, a few years later, he's a wide receiver and he's on scholarship. 

Laurent, who attended Parkway South High School in suburban St. Louis, talked about how he got to this point in his career with the Tigers, how he found out about the scholarship and what he brings to the team at the wide receiver position. He also talked about the time, because of injury, he was the Tigers' No. 2 quarterback for a game a few years ago.
