Coveted basketball recruit Tony Mitchell was not cleared by the NCAA to enroll at Missouri, the school announced Wednesday afternoon.
A report from the Denton Record-Chronicle stated Wednesday morning that Mitchell is now planning to enroll at North Texas.
Mitchell, the No. 12 prospect in the 2012 recruiting class according to Rivals.com, had initially committed to Missouri before facing eligibility problems.
After attending the Center of Life Academy in Miami, Fla., Mitchell transferred to Pinkston High for his senior year, and the Dallas Independent School District and the NCAA called into question several transfer credits he brought over in the process.
The source told the Record-Chronicle that Mitchell would be on campus at North Texas Wednesday.
"I'm very disappointed for Tony and his family," Missouri coach Mike Anderson said in a press release. "Tony is an outstanding young man, someone that has worked diligently to attend our university. He has shown great resolve during a difficult situation and we will continue to do whatever is allowable to help him as we move forward."
The Tigers continue the season Saturday on the road against the Texas Longhorns.
