Barry Odom: WR Ray Wingo now academically eligible, returns to Missouri practice

Missouri’s aerial attack got some good news as the program tries to build on a season that saw a dramatic improvement in the passing game.

On Monday afternoon, Barry Odom told reporters that redshirt junior WR Ray Wingo is back at practice with the team after needing to get past his academic eligibility hurdle.

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound speedster from St. Louis, rated as the No. 4 player in the state back in 2014, flashed his potential in Mizzou’s 61-21 win over Eastern Michigan last season.

Wingo caught 3 passes for 125 yards with a 52-yard touchdown from Drew Lock in the third quarter. He also went 68 yards on another reception earlier in the second quarter.

However, that’s accounted for most of his production with the program. In 16 games, Wingo has only managed 9 receptions for 167 yards and 2 TDs.

He’ll look to find his place in a Missouri passing attack that ranked second in the SEC last season in passing yards per game (294.5) after being dead last in that category the previous season.
