Jason: The future of Mizzou basketball is in great hands! First 5 star recruit since Linas Kleiza and the rest of the class is more than solid as well. Another recruit, Phil Pressy is one of the best point guards in the country and we got a under the radar athletic forward in Kadeem Green. Go Tigers!
