Yesterday was the final day of the 4-day Missouri-Kansas Hy-Vee Shootout. The final day always showcases the biggest and best matchups, and the biggest and best players. I was also in attendence last year and had the pleasure of seeing Mizzou signee Ricky Kreklow play. This season there were two big-time recruits playing. The first is Perry Ellis out of Wichita Heights. Admittedly Perry didnt look outstanding in his game, but he didnt have to against a completely outmanned Nixa team. He showed off some nice dunks and a solid mid range shot, but I was most surprised with how well he handles the ball. Overall he is a VERY large body who would definately help the tigers but I'm usure of his stamina, I don't know if he has the legs to play for CMA.
though Mizzou isn't in his top 5 just yet.
The next player I am much more interested in. Ishmail Wainwright from Raytown South. 6-6, 220, long arms, great dunker, good defender, and he's only a sophomore? holy balls. Mizzou really needs this guy, because he looks like he would be a great fit in CMAs system, and he is really athletic. He was far and away the best player at this years Shootout, and I really hope he finds his way to CoMo.
hey we're in his top 5!!!
