The Plot Thickens: Former Missouri QB Tyler Gabbert Not Headed To Louisville After All

From the Card Chronicle, reports are now surfacing that former Missouri quarterback Tyler Gabbert has left the University of Louisville and return home to his family in Missouri in an apparent change of heart. Gabbert, who had left Mizzou after spring practice, recently had decided to continue his college football career at Louisville under the direction of coach Charlie Strong and notably new quarterback coach Shawn Watson.

Though nothing has been confirmed, it appears Blaine Gabbert's little brother would like to rejoin the Missouri football team, however Gary Pinkel's staff has let the Gabbert family know that there is no room left in the inn. The Missouri football program obtained a commitment on Thursday from Ohio high school quarterback Maty Mauk to come to Columbia in 2012. In addition, heralded local recruit Corbin Berkstresser joins the Tigers this summer as well.

Odd things are afoot for Gabbert, as he appeared to be signed, sealed, and deliever to Louisville based on the Gabbert family history with Watson. Both Blaine and Tyler were committed at separate times to Nebraska to play for the Cornhuskers when Watson was offensive coordinator, however both ended up in Columbia eventually.
