Breaking News: Gabbert Will Visit Mizzou
Parkway West (Mo.) quarterback Blaine Gabbert, the No. 1 rated player in Missouri and the No. 4 quarterback in the nation, is reconsidering his commitment to Nebraska.He will be in Columbia this Saturday for the Mizzou-Texas Tech game and is closely considering Missouri, InsideMizzou.com has learned.
"Yes, he will be in Columbia this Saturday for the game," Parkway West coach Mike Roth told InsideMizzou.com. "There's a lot going on at Nebraska and a lot of uncertainty, and Blaine wants to take another look at his options … Yeah, I think he is starting to look around."
Gabbert also considered Alabama and others before committing to Nebraska this past summer, but Roth has not heard anything about the Crimson Tide getting back into the mix.
"The only school he has mentioned to me is Missouri," Roth said. "Missouri has been right there from the get-go. He's got a lot of respect for coach Pinkel, coach Ford and coach Yost. It would be a great opportunity for him to come in and learn for a year under a great, great leader in Chase Daniel. That experience would be invaluable."
Nebraska has foundered, suffering blowout losses to Mizzou and Oklahoma State the last two weeks and firing athletic director Steve Pederson, leaving the status of the entire coaching staff in doubt.
"There's a lot of uncertainty with all of the coaches there. Coach Cosgrove is someone who Blaine had formed a strong relationship with," Roth said. "Missouri is right up the road and coach Pinkel has it rolling right now. Missouri was always one of his top choices."
