Mizzou Links, 4-17-14: Brown's officially gone, recruiting continues, and ... MAXXXX

Bill Carter

Jabari Brown will indeed stay in the NBA draft pool, former Mizzou target (and four-star shooting guard) Ahmed Hill reopens his recruitment, Tennis advances in the SEC Tournament, and Max Copeland is still Max Copeland.

We'll have a post about it later this morning, but Mizzou indeed scored another football commitment last night. And it is another solid prospect from Suwanee, Ga. Bring on further good vibes!
