Re­plac­ing Alexan­der

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

There’s re­plac­ing a star, and then there’s re­plac­ing Da­nario Alexan­der, Mis­souri’s top re­ceiver last year who caught 113 passes for 1,781 yards and 14 touch­downs. Still, the Tigers do re­turn three play­ers — Wes Kemp, Jer­rell Jack­son and Der­rick Washington — who had 20 or more catches.

“I’m com­fort­able with all the re­ceivers we have com­ing back,” quar­ter­back Blaine Gab­bert said. “(They) just need to look at me and I know what they’re think­ing. We just plug in a guy and go in our sys­tem.”

Mis­souri quar­ter­back Blaine Gab­bert is be­gin­ning this sea­son healthy. The ju­nior played much of last year while bat­tling an an­kle in­jury. He says he’ll try to stay ‘even-keeled’ this year.
