I know this changes daily, and is open to speculation, but I'll throw out some of the names we've heard here or elsewhere:
Lekan Ajayi: *** 6'9"-6'11", 220-240 Athletic defender and rebounder but unpolished offensively, he has narrowed his list to Auburn, Missouri and Loyola Marymount.
Elijah Carter: *** 6'1"-6'2", 170-180 Strong, slashing combo guard from New Hampshire with a streaky outside shot. Tim Fuller has apparently made contact, so it appears the interest is there.
Tony Kimbro: *** 6'4"-6'6", 170-195 Swingman with interest from Oklahoma State, USC, Arkansas, Western Kentucky, and a few others. I don't believe we've offered him yet, but it sounds like he'd commit if offered soon.
Richard Peters: *** 6'10", 220-250 Center who is a former Oklahoma commit, but re-opened his recruitment after Capel left Oklahoma. He's known Kadeem Green for a long time and sounds like he'd come to Missouri if offered but may not have been contacted yet. He has not academically qualified yet (I believe it's just SAT at this point) but that should be a known commodity fairly soon.
Tony Woods: Transfer from Wake Forest, former *****. 6'11", 245. Dismissed from Wake Forest for a misdemeanor assault on a female, he was reportedly headed to Louisville before Tim Fuller left for Ol' Mizzou. As has already been discussed on Rock M, this is a high risk/potentially high reward move.
Any other names floating around? Who from this list do you want to see here? Any additional insight on these guys? Does it change for you depending on whether Phil Pressey returns?
