Here are today’s Mizzou Links.

Welcome, Kobe Brown!

Former Texas A&M signee Kobe Brown announced his commitment to Missouri on Tuesday afternoon, and the three-star wing (likely) shuts the door on Missouri’s 2019 class.

From Sam’s article, linked above:

The 6-foot-7, 220-pound prospect epitomizes the shift toward a positionless game. In his recruiting videos, Brown, who is ranked No. 238 in 247 Sports’ composite index, bills himself as a combo guard. Yet his size and limited athleticism likely peg him for more as a combo forward. He has the body type to add weight to an already sturdy frame, so sizing up to play the four-spot in certain combinations makes a lot of sense.

Brown joins four-star forward Tray Jackson and three-star guard Mario McKinney in Missouri’s 2019 class,

Our pal Carrington Harrison caught up with Sam to talk about Brown’s commitment; you can listen below:

PowerMizzou.com’s Gabe DeArmond spoke with Brown’s father about his son’s commitment.

From the article:

“Coach (Cuonzo) Martin made such an impression on us. We’ve done our research,” Greg Brown said. “We saw the stability and the way coach Martin talks about Missouri and his vision for the program is just unreal. The people, he talks about how wonderful the fans are and the administrators and the professors.”

Farewell, Ronnie Suggs, and other hoops news

Missouri basketball coach Cuonzo Martin met with the media on Tuesday and announced that guard Ronnie Suggs had entered his name into the transfer portal.

See?

Suggs’ departure frees up another scholarship, and redshirt freshman Parker Braun will receive a scholarship, per PowerMizzou.com and every outlet that was at Missouri’s media day.

In addition, there were some other notable hoops notes from media day:

  • Michael Porter Sr. will remain on the staff for 2019-2020.
