COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)
Mizzou's offensive line gained one, crucial returner on Saturday afternoon. Starting left tackle Javon Foster announced that he will be returning for his sixth year of eligibility in 2023.
The veteran has appeared in all of the last four seasons for the Tigers, after taking a redshirt year in 2018. Foster currently has 25 straight starts at left tackle for MU, starting in all 12 games in 2022.
2021 was a standout year for the lineman. He was graded as the third-best SEC starting tackle in run blocking according to PFF. That offensive line also blocked for more than 400 yards of offense per game, even helping former running back Tyler Badie break Mizzou's single-season rushing record.
Foster will look to boost his NFL Draft stock with one year of eligibility remaining.
