Missouri linebacker Ty’Ron Hopper is staying at Missouri another year.

Mizzou football announced on Tuesday that Hopper would be among those “running it back” with the Tigers in 2023. That’s good news for a defensive unit that was among the best in the country in 2022, consistently staying in the top-25 despite not receiving the proper recognition for doing so.

Hopper finished out the 2022 season with 74 total tackles (60 solo), 3 sacks, 2 passes defended and 1 forced fumble. Over his career, he totals 151 combined tackles (98 solo), 6 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and 1 interception.

How he builds upon that in the coming year will be something to watch.
