Tigers basketball lands highly rated prep star
COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Top basketball recruit Tony Mitchell of Dallas will join the Missouri Tigers next season.
The university announced Mitchell's commitment Tuesday. He is considered one of the top 20 high school seniors and the highest-rated recruit to sign with Missouri in 15 years.
The 6-foot-8 forward will play this year for L.G. Pinkston High School in Texas after a junior season at Center of Life Academy in Miami.
He joins point guard Phil Pressey of Dallas, power forward Kadeem Green of Charlotte, N.C., and shooting guard Ricky Kreklow of Columbia, Mo., in Missouri's 2010 recruiting class.
