John Bol to Commit Soon

A big-time high school basketball prospect is nearing a commitment decision — and Mizzou is involved in the recruiting race.

John Bol, a 7-foot center from Sunrise Christian Academy near Wichita, Kansas (previously at CBC High School in St. Louis) will be announcing his destination on Saturday — tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. CT.

Bol is a 2024 four-star recruit — ranking 29th nationally on 247Sports and 34th on Rivals.

With Kobe Brown entering the NBA Draft and Isiaih Mosley’s departure to pursue professional opportunities — Mizzou could definitely use some good news and it would be great to start off the 2024 class with a bang.

It obviously won’t be easy for Dennis Gates to land Bol as the Tigers will be competing with Wake Forest, Florida, Texas, UConn, Michigan, USC and Overtime Elite for his services.

How big of a deal would a Bol commitment to Mizzou be? Matt Harris with some information:

Needless to say, Saturday could potentially be an exciting day. Stay tuned.

Onto the links. M-I-Z!
