Missouri hasn’t changed philosophy, but Tigers welcome taller cornerbacks | Tod Palmer

While recruiting taller corners might be a happy accident, the addition of more man coverage and press technique at the line of scrimmage is philosophical — and welcome.

"I definitely feel like we’re a little more aggressive on the perimeter, but also it comes with just experience," said junior John Gibson, a 6-0 cornerback with starting experience who plays outside when Penton moves to the slot in nickel situations. "Everybody came back from last year and we’re a little more comfortable in our shoes."

Hoops Unity

I want to start with an article by Myron Medcalf over on ESPN, but only because it tacks hard against the other stories below.

Looking ahead to 2015-16: Missouri Tigers - Men's College Basketball Blog - ESPN

[Johnathan] Williams' father told reporters that his son left the team due to poor chemistry. That's always problematic because it suggests that Anderson not only has to coach and develop talent but also has to remedy the culture within the program.

So Anderson will turn to Wes Clark, who missed a chunk of the season after suffering a dislocated elbow in February. He was the team's top scorer in conference play at the time of the injury (11.7 PPG). Montaque Gill-Caesar (9.1 PPG) and Namon Wright (6.8 PPG), who were both suspended in February for violating team rules, will return, too. Terrence Phillips, a point guard from Georgia, is the recruit that the Missouri staff seems most excited about.

Big thinking precedes great achievement. #ThinkBig #MIZ

"I think he’s good," Anderson said. "I think at the beginning — I don’t know what he said — but I think he had a little soreness when he extended, but to me he looks pretty good. I think we’re still being a little bit cautious, but he’s basically I think looked pretty good on the court."

"He’s still got that killer instinct," Gant said. "His arm’s still kind of hurt. He’s not 100 percent, but he’s still playing good. He’s just using more left. That really helped him out with his left more because he’s using his left way more. So he’s going to be real good. I feel like Wes is going to be real good this season."

Martavian Payne is Markus Golden's cousin? Good enough for me.

Missouri basketball players choose to stick together - Columbia Daily Tribune | Steve Walentik

Yes, even Isabell, who appeared the most likely transfer candidate after being suspended five games for behavior Anderson described as "unacceptable" during his freshman season.

"It was more or less just a competitive thing," Isabell said of the clashes that limited his playing time. "I’ve never really been used to losing like that, and it was kind of getting under my skin a little bit, and I wasn’t handling it the right way. Coach Anderson just kind of took me under his wing. It was a learning process."

He wants to continue absorbing lessons from Anderson, which is why he joined fellow returning scholarship players Ryan Rosburg, D’Angelo Allen, Jakeenan Gant, Namon Wright and Wes Clark — who on Monday was cleared to resume full participation in offseason training as he recovers from the dislocated elbow that ended his season on Feb. 10. Five of Missouri’s six newcomers also were there at Mizzou Arena.

A first look at the 5-star basketball recruits in the class of 2017 -

Michael Porter

While it's way too early in Porter's recruitment to determine a front-runner, it's worth noting his family has plenty of connections at Mizzou. His aunt is the head coach of the women's team, and his father is an assistant coach under her. His two sisters Bri and Cierra Porter also currently play for the Tigers.
