EJ Liddell

This weekend is a pretty big one for Mizzou basketball as longtime targets E.J. Liddell and Mario McKinney are scheduled to take their official visit. Soon after taking the job at Missouri, coach Cuonzo Martin keyed in on a few players he knew could help build the type of program he wanted. Since, he has stayed hot on the trail of both McKinney and Liddell.

McKinney, a tough athletic combo guard from Vashon High School in St. Louis, is the kind of in-your-face, defensive energy guy who can be a tone setter.

Liddell, a tough athletic combo forward from Belleville West High School in Illinois, is a defensive presence around the rim and a burgeoning offensive presence.

Combine both of their talents, the fact they hail from the same metropolitan area which bred Martin himself, and a region Missouri has long struggled to fully crack in recruiting, and you have a situation ripe with intrigue.

Matt Harris joins Sam Snelling in the latest episode of Dive Cuts to talk about this very topic.
