So who is Jordan Clarkson? Let's see…

a three-star recruit in the 2010 class who chose Tulsa over offers from SMU, TCU, Texas A&M, and just about every Texas mid-major. He elected to transfer following the firing of Tulsa coach Doug Wojcik.

Tulsa's leading scorer as a sophomore. He scored 16.5 potions per game on 44 percent shooting (46 percent on 2-pointers, 37 percent on 3-pointers, 78 percent from the line). He seems like a well-rounded scorer -- he both gets to the line and makes long-range jumpers. He also averaged 3.9 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 0.9 steals, 2.7 turnovers (ouch) and even blocked 17 shots.

another "why do schools have so much control over transfers?" cause. Tulsa initially blocked Clarkson from talking to five schools, then "amicably" cut the list to four. It is so incredibly ridiculous that schools are allowed to do this.

So Mizzou gets a shot at another transfer. If they do not land Devonta Pollard (who is supposedly going to be ready to announce his chosen school within the next week or so), this is a lovely way to, in effect, pocket the scholarship for 2012-13 and put another interesting transfer on the floor the next season. We'll see how it goes.

Doesn't it feel good that I had to take "MIZZOU" out of the title above?

So you're watching/have subscribed to SB Nation's YouTube channel, right? We're up to 8,400 subscribers, which is awesome, but we want more. I've really enjoyed watching how the programming has come together -- you've got your regular shows -- your Bomani & Jones, your Full Nelson, your Shutdown Fullback (below), etc. But SBN is also figuring out ways to give you quick-hitting analysis, previews and reaction pieces that I've been really pleased with thus far. Overall, it's been a nice balance of information and entertainment (with occasional doses of silliness ... again, see below), and it is incredibly well-edited. In other words, I think it's worth your time to subscribe ... or, if you don't do the subscribing thing, just visit the site often.

(And yes, there should be more Rock M YouTube content at some point.)
