Michael Porter Jr, SF
Jordan Barnett, SF
Kassius Robertson, SG

Returning Starters:
Jontay Porter, SF/PF

Spoiler!

If we are able to keep Jontay for next year it's basically like getting a surprise top 10 recruit. He's gonna be damn good next year.

If you are talking about Michael Porter, he signed with an agent. He can't come back.

Yeah, realized after I posted that I didn't specify which Porter, but I think it's pretty clear which one I was talking about.

Well that raises the ceiling of next year's team from about 14 to 22 wins, IMO.

We're still lacking at PG and with proven scoring options, but our front court should be a strength. I think 20 wins and a return to the NCAA tournament are reasonable expectations. Let's just hope we don't have any more knuckleheads transferring right before the season, or any more of players letting down their teammates by driving drunk right before the tournament.

That's great. I hope he improves his NBA appeal as a reward for this.

Donít forget consistently harassing and assaulting women...

Big return for Mizzou. Hope they find a way to get Jordan Lathon - 6-4 combo guard - on board. That would give them enough depth at the G position to really take advantage of the great interior combo.

This is interesting:

Braun a late addition for Mizzou

He does need to add strength and continue to build on his overall skill level, but his biggest asset right now is is energy and activity. Schools feel like he can come in and play some minutes early because of that energy and that they can develop him into a reliable upperclassman.Ē

I'm shocked about Porter - but I think it's the right move - he needs to develop more - I'm shocked due to his vulnerability to injury. I'd go get that money while I can.
