Michael
Porter
Jr.
Noting that he is coming home, Michael Porter Jr. (6'10''-SF-98) committed to Missouri on Friday afternoon, a day after being released from his letter of intent to Washington.
The move also comes after Missouri confirmed that his father, Michael Sr., would be joining Cuonzo Martin's coaching staff. Martin, the former Cal coach, was hired last Friday at Missouri.
Porter Jr., a 6-10 forward, is the nation's 2nd (some website mark him as top) ranked high school senior and winner of multiple national player of the year awards, including Gatorade. He averaged 37 points and 14.3 rebounds for Nathan Hale (Seattle), the No. 1 team in the Super 25.
He can sign with Missouri on April 12 at the beginning of the spring period.
Porter Jr. spent last season at Nathan Hale after his father was hired as an assistant at Washington under Lorenzo Romar, Porter Jr.'s godfather. He had lived in Columbia, Mo., since 2010 and played his first three seasons at Father Tolton, while his father was an assistant with the Missouri women's team under his sister-in-law Robin Pingeton.

Friday, he followed up the initial image with this:
'Last week everything changed for me regarding my college basketball decision. Realizing I would no longer have the opportunity to play for Coach Romar, I've taken the past seven days to give great consideration to my future. After a lot of thought, prayer, and talking with my family, I'm excited to announce that next year I will be attending the University of Missouri! I am looking forward to the year ahead with Coach Cuonz and my new teammates. Together we hope to store the atmosphere at Mizzou Arena.

'MIZZOU NATION I'M COMING HOME!!!'
The next question is whether younger brother Jontay, who reopened his recruiting last week, will follow Jontay Porter is expected to reclassify from the Class of 2018.

McDonald's All-American Jordan Brown Commits to Nevada - 12 days ago
Nevada landed a big fish in five-star McDonald's All-American Jordan Brown (6'11''-C-99), a 6'10 power forward out of California. Brown is a big addition to the Wolfpack whether the Martin twins come back or not. If they are to return you can expect to find Nevada in just about every preseason top 10 poll. Eric Musselman is really bringing in a significant amount of talent to Nevada here recently and the Brown commitment is just extending the trend. Brown is a top 20 recruit and fifth-ran...   [read more]

Keshaun Saunders commits to Toledo - 1 month ago
Canadian guard Keshaun Saunders (G/F-99) has committed to the University of Toledo. "I was kind of stuck in between whether I wanted to be a midmajor player or a high-major player.

A 6'5'' shooting guard/point guard from Brampton, Ontario, Saunders played at Orangeville Prep under head coach Nathan Johnson.
