Just for clarity's sake, here's every high school or prep school recruit to either fail to qualify or leave early, starting with the 2009 signing class:
- 2009: Mike Dixon, Tyler Stone, John Underwood, Keith Dewitt
- 2010: Kadeem Green, Ricky Kreklow, Tony Mitchell, Phil Pressey
- 2011: none
- 2012: Domonique Bull, Stefan Jankovic, Negus Webster-Chan
- 2013: Torren Jones, Shane Rector, Johnathan Williams III, Wes Clark
- 2014: Montaque Gill-Caeser, D'Angelo Allen, Namon Wright, Tramaine Isabell
Missouri has signed 21 high school/prep recruits, and 19 either left early or didn't make it. Two stayed (Ryan Rosburg, Jakeenan Gant), and one of those two could also leave at some point.
