6'10 Cheickna Dembele to visit Mizzou May 6 weekend


Cheickna Dembele, a Rivals three-star center who has gotten increasing interest from major programs late in this recruiting cycle, will evidently visit Columbia next weekend. Obviously this doesn't make Mizzou a favorite to land one of the few remaining talented big men available, but it's a start. As Sam wrote last week, "When it comes to Dembele, he's got Syracuse, Michigan State, Baylor, St. Joe's, and many many more hot on his trail. If Missouri lands an official visit that will be impressive in of itself, they're going to have to rely on the hope of getting in early and having a good relationship, which can work sometimes."
