Prediction: Missouri

Rationale

The Tigers have long been connected to Lovett since the commitment of his teammate Tyler MaconTylerMacon6'0" | QBEast St. Louis | 2021StateIL. I think they’re the favorite right now, for a few reasons. Number one: proximity to home. Missouri’s campus is only two hours from home, making it easy for his family to come and watch home games. Number 2: East St. Louis has a long history of players choosing to head to Columbia, Missouri. Five-star defensive tackle Terry Beckner Jr. in 2016 turned down every school in the country to play for the Tigers. Number three: Head coach Eli Drinkwitz. The people I’ve spoken to have raved about Drinkwitz’s offensive mind & his relentless nature in recruiting. I think Lovett has taken notice of both of those, and when he does make a decision, it’s my belief that it will be the tigers.
