Pinkel said the main areas of importance outside of the Tigers' home state are Dallas and Atlanta. The good thing for Pinkel and his staff is that it's only about an hour longer drive to Atlanta compared to Dallas. It still accounts for 10-plus hours on the road, but if you're going to take the time to head to Dallas, you might as well make it out to the hub of the South.
And for Pinkel, it's well worth it.
"If you look at statistics and analysis of BCS players, they come out of the metroplex around Dallas and then you look at the greater Atlanta area," he said. "The parallels are staggering between those two cities. They produce a lot of athletes."
Currently, Missouri has just six players from SEC states -- three from Florida, two from Arkansas and one from Louisiana. Mizzou increased that number by two after signing two players from Florida in its 2012 class.

So this is an interesting tidbit. The good folks at PowerMizzou think Mizzou has a good shot at Stevie Clark, a junior point guard from OKC Douglass. Only ... his coach just left, he's not pleased about it, and he's trying to figure out if he can graduate in 2012 instead. If he does so ... then that probably means Missouri is not a player (because of that whole "we have no scholarships left to give" thing).
