Safety Ishmael Burdine's first season with the Missouri football team might be over before it began. Burden, a three-star recruit from Slidell, Louisiana, recently underwent surgery for a torn labrum he injured during his high school playing days.
The Missourian's Bennett Durando reported the news in a tweet.
#Mizzou freshman DB Ishmael Burdine had surgery two weeks ago for a torn labrum and will likely miss the 2019 season, he tells me. Injured it in high school, found out recently. He says he’ll be out 4 to 6 months. Older teammates praised him as one of top newcomers this spring.— Bennett Durando (@BennettDurando) July 11, 2019
Burdine, a three-star recruit, is a 6-foot-1, 175-pound defensive back with 4.5 speed in the 40-yard dash. He was the 20th-ranked recruit from the state of Louisiana in the 2019 class.
Missouri football lands another commit
Trinity Catholic offensive lineman Jalen St. John announced his commitment to Missouri in a tweet on Thursday.
The 6-foot-4-inch, 302 pound St. Louis native is a three-star recruit.
St. John is the 13th commitment in the 2020 class and the seventh in-state commit.
