Per Scout.com: Shooting guard Namon Wright re-commits to Missouri

New, 205 comments

Wright, a four-star shooting guard, had evidently just been granted his full release from his Missouri letter of intent, but it apparently will not be necessary to go all the way back through the recruiting process. Following a visit from Kim Anderson last week and a subsequent recruiting visit to Utah last weekend, Wright has reaffirmed that he will end up in Columbia next year.

With this news and last weekend's announced transfer by Hawaii senior-to-be Keith Shamburger, we should probably update the roster table I put together on May 5. (UPDATE: Shane Rector just announced he is transferring, so he's now been removed.)

Anderson still has two more scholarships to give for the 2014 class if he so chooses, and all indications are that he's still looking for one more point guard. Four-star former Wake Forest signee Shelton Mitchell will evidently be announcing his decision next week, and Mizzou's evidently trying to get in on former California commit (and, yes, point guard), Ahmad Rorie as well. With Shamburger on board, Mizzou already has three point guards on the roster for next year, so the pursuit of a fourth is interesting. Regardless, from landing the job of his dreams, to keeping Tim Fuller, to keeping both Jakeenan Gant and Wright (and, as far as we know, every returning player on the roster) on board, everything continues to come up Kim in his first month on the job.
