Former Tigers on 2023 College Football Hall of Fame Ballot


It was announced Monday that former Mizzou wide receiver/all-purpose player Jeremy Maclin and defensive lineman Justin Smith are included on the 2023 ballot for induction into the College Football Hall of Fame.

With the Tigers, Maclin set the NCAA record for all-purpose yards in a season by a freshman in 2007 with 2,776 yards. He also scored 16 touchdowns and was a first-team consensus All-American being the only player in Division I in 2007 to score touchdowns in all four all-purpose categories.

Smith was an All-American in 2000 and finished as the program’s career sack leader with 22 1/2. He is also Mizzou’s career leader in tackles for loss with 50.

Other former Chiefs on the ballot are safety Eric Berry, tight end Tony Gonzalez, linebacker Derrick Johnson and quarterback Alex Smith.
