Cheickna Dembele signs with UNLV


After we'd heard that Cheickna Dembele would be visiting Missouri on the weekend of May 6th, it seems like he didn't make it through his first official visit, committing to UNLV per Corey Evans.

According to Jeff Borzello, both Dembele and Eron Gordon were going to visit on May 6th and there's no word yet on if both still plan to take their official visits.

Dembele's commitment comes as a surprise as our own Sam Snelling didn't see him committing until he'd taken all his visits. The highly sought after big man was the best available 2016 post recruit and appeared to fit a position of need for Missouri. The Tigers have two open scholarships.
