Pachot broke out during his senior year of high school at San Bernardino High in California. He was the nation's 12th leading passer while throwing for 4,424 yards and 41 touchdowns over 16 games.
Pachot noted in his announcement that he anticipates having 3-4 years of eligibility.
Missouri State is set on quarterback for this upcoming season with Jason Shelley, the reigning Missouri Valley Football Conference Offensive Player of the Year, returning for his final season of eligibility under center.
Jacob Clark, a Minnesota transfer, got second-team reps throughout the preseason. He figures to be someone who can take over for Shelley following this season.
