A quarterback on a state championship football team gave a verbal pledge to the University of Missouri earlier this winter. But Blake Charlton would be throwing a different ball for the Tigers if the junior’s verbal pledge holds (he can’t sign a letter of intent for another year, and would also be eligible for the MLB Amateur draft in 2016). The CBC Cadet Pitcher wants to end up at Simmons Field in Columbia, not Faurot Field across the street. He explained the decision to us earlier this year.
