Mizzou is 1 of 4 finalists for Courtney Ramey’s services, and a decision might be coming soon

Here are today’s Mizzou Links.

The Courtney Ramey saga might — might — be ending soon. According to Ramey’s father Terrell, who went on Louisville sports radio yesterday, he has his list of four finalists (they are who we assumed they were), and his decision will come “real soon.”

One way or another, closure is a good thing to have. If I had to bet my life savings on an outcome — and thank goodness I don’t — I’d probably put the money on Louisville at the moment, but I’ve been wrong plenty of times before, and hopefully I am here, too. Regardless, Cuonzo Martin will know more about his 2018-19 roster soon. And I guess we will, too.

Meanwhile...

Martin will be counting on incoming freshman Torrence Watson for some scoring punch next year...

Martin recently pointed out that Torrence Watson had three games with 50-plus points during his senior season — and more games with 40-plus. After averaging 31.2 points for Whitfield School in St. Louis this season, he set the team’s career scoring record. The remarkable total: 2,755 points.

“That means you’re able to put the ball in the basket,” Martin said of Watson, currently the highest-ranked Class of 2018 Missouri signee. “... It’s just a matter of us being able to put him in position to be successful, giving him the confidence from day one to understand, ‘Do what you do in high school. Just take it to the next level.’”

...and Watson very much endorses one of Martin’s recent offers: Vashon’s Cam’Ron Fletcher.

Fletcher is a 2020 recruit. He’s 6’6, 180, and the No. 54 prospect in the class per 247.

#LouToTheZou has a nice ring to it, I must say.

  • Mizzou Softball really needed a sweep of WIU yesterday in Macomb, and they got it, winning 7-0 and 2-0. That puts them at 26-24. Sweep Wichita State this weekend, too, and that would put them at four games over .500 and guarantee that they enter the SEC Tournament over .500 even if they’re swept by Florida. Not sure if that’s enough for an NCAA Tournament bid, even with a great RPI, but ending up below .500 definitely won’t be.
