ORIGINAL: For the previous couple of weeks, the 2 Matts and I’ve been retweeting and compiling a protracted checklist of gamers within the switch portal who’ve been contacted by Missouri. And we’ve not actually talked about it but. So let’s dig in, and see who’s obtainable and on a fairly intensive checklist.

level guards

  • Nick Honor — COMMITTED
  • Dylan Penn — Dedicated to Vermont
  • Xavier Pinson: Reopened recruitment, however Missouri is just not believed to be concerned.
  • Kyrell Luc — Dedicated to St. Bonaventure
  • Cam Hayes—Dedicated to LSU
  • Mark Sears—Dedicated to Alabama
  • Tristen Newton — Dedicated to UConn
  • Camren Wynter — Dedicated to Penn State
  • Terry Roberts—Dedicated to Georgia
  • Trey Bonham—Dedicated to Florida

The purpose guard is clearly a place of want, and whereas it took a while, Gates landed a pair of them to kick off his reboot. With Penn’s determination, we are able to wipe this part of the board clear.

Combo Guards

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament - Drexel at Illinois

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports activities

  • Tre Gomillion — COMMITTED
  • Adam Miller: Finalists are TCU and LSU.
  • Courtney Ramey: Ultimate checklist of colleges didn’t embrace Missouri.
  • Femi Odukale: Ultimate 5 of URI, Seton Corridor, Maryland, UConn, Oregon
  • Rayshon Harrison—Dedicated to Grand Canyon
  • Darin Inexperienced, Jr. — Dedicated to Florida State
  • Sean McNeil — Dedicated to Ohio State

Combo guard was rather less of a necessity. Then Amari Davis entered the switch portal. Tre Gomillion is now within the fold, and you may shift Honor or East off the ball. D’Moi Hodge or Kaleb Brown may also be emergency choices. Regardless, there’s a chance for MU to additional improve the backcourt with two scholarships open. MU made cursory contact with UTEP’s Souley Boum, however each indication is that it is gone no additional.

Jeff Curry USA TODAY Sports activities

  • DeAndre Gholston — COMMITTED
  • D’Moi Hodge — COMMITTED
  • Isaiah Adams—Dedicated to Buffalo
  • Jason Roche—Dedicated to Richmond
  • Antonio Reeves—Dedicated to Kentucky
  • Terrence Shannon, Jr — Dedicated to Illinois
  • Will Richard—Dedicated to Florida
  • Ali Ali — Dedicated to Butler
  • Erik Stevenson — Dedicated to West Virginia
  • Eric Williams Jr — Skilled Route
  • Souley Boum — Dedicated to Xavier

Hodge is a blur in transition and a potent cutter. In the meantime, Gholston’s truly a sneaky good shooter off the catch. Oh, and Aidan Shaw will covet minutes, too. Jarron Coleman transferring on clears up a bottleneck. Dennis Gates may additionally deploy the versatile Gomillion right here, too. So far as guards go, Elijah Fisher, a 2023 prospect who would possibly reclassify, most likely deserves essentially the most consideration.

NCAA Basketball: Utah Valley at Utah

Jeffrey Swinger USA TODAY Sports activities

  • Jamarion Sharp — Recommitted to Western Kentucky
  • Xavier Foster — Dedicated to SMU
  • Fardaws Aimaq — Dedicated to Texas Tech
  • Warren Washington—Dedicated to Arizona State
  • Callum McRae — Dedicated to Sacramento State
  • Efo Agobidi — Eradicated Missouri

Let’s be actual. Sharp’s the one identified switch with whom MU’s closely concerned. The deadline to enter the portal and nonetheless have instant eligibility has come and gone. And we’ve not seen or heard of some other prospects on MU’s radar. It additionally means outbound site visitors can be completed.

There are two openings, and Sharp, who was supposedly set to go to Columbia this week, is the plain focus. MU may pocket its remaining scholarship, however shoring up the publish stays an essential merchandise on the to-do checklist. Kobe Brown, Ronnie DeGray III, and Noah Carter are all smaller than 6-foot-8, and none of them is a rim protector. As for Mohamed Diarra, the highest JUCO prospect within the nation might want to bulk up and develop snug defending SEC bigs.

Past Sharp, there aren’t simply identifiable alternate options. Even prep choices are scanned. Fort Zumwalt North’s Connor Turnbull renewed his dedication to Butler. And regardless of a fast go to and provide, MU by no means appeared to press the problem with Blair Oaks’ Luke Northweather, who picked Oklahoma.

At this level there are not any identified targets within the switch portal. The portal is formally closed for gamers who haven’t already entered, and who can be in search of eligibility to play subsequent season. If that modifications, we’ll clearly replace the tracker, however for not it appears like Missouri could also be out of choices (or, on the very least, KNOWN choices).
