Missouri basketball recruiting: Jontay Porter, Michael's little brother, commits to Washington

So this was a little bit of a Sunday surprise:

The Trib: Tolton power forward Jontay Porter commits to Washington

Congrats to my lil bro @jontayporter just committed to Washington!!

That's Michael Porter Jr.'s younger brother, a sophomore-to-be, committing to Washington. It's about 14 months until Michael can sign anywhere and more than two years before his own signing date.

This cannot in any way be seen as a good thing when it comes to Michael's recruitment; UW's Lorenzo Romar is a family friend and has long been considered a threat to land Michael's services (he tried to hire Michael's father not too long ago). That Michael eagerly retweeted both that and this tweet from his good friend Trae Young...

...certainly suggests that UW is and will remain a threat in his own recruitment.

Still ... it's still going to be a while before anything permanent happens regarding the recruitment of any of these three. On the list of Mizzou Basketball Concerns, this one's not in the top 10 at the moment. It's on the list, but it's not near the top. For now, I'll just scratch my head my head for now and congratulate Jontay.

More from Sam:

Pretty much.
