Dec. 20, 2011

COLUMBIA, Mo. - Mizzou head basketball coach Frank Haith and the Tiger men's basketball team have announced that Jabari Brown, a former five-star prospect and top-20 recruit according Rivals.com, has signed a grant-in-aid agreement with the University of Missouri. Brown will sit out the rest of this year as part of NCAA transfer guidelines but will be eligible to play with the Tigers in December of 2012.

"We are obviously very excited to welcome Jabari to Mizzou," head coach Frank Haith said. "He was a top-20 recruit coming out of Oakland High School and he really brings with him a very complete skill set. He has good size and great athleticism and really knows how to score. He is a good kid that comes from a great family and I have no doubt that he will fit in well here at Mizzou."

The 6-4, 205-pounder was enrolled at the University of Oregon earlier this season before looking to transfer. He played two games with the Ducks and scored 12 points with four rebounds in the two contests while guiding Oregon to a 1-1 record in that span. Coming out of high school, the Oakland, Calif., native was rated as the No. 19 prospect nationally by Rivals.com and was a five-star recruit according to the website. He was rated as the No. 5 shooting guard nationally by Rivals coming out of high school as well.

Brown lived up to his billing while playing with Oregon on a tour of Italy over the summer. He played in five games and led the Ducks in scoring (15.4 ppg) while shooting .415 from the floor and was a perfect 16-16 from the foul line. He also averaged 5.0 rebounds per game and led the team with six steals while playing in Italy. Brown led the team in field goals (27), field goal attempts (65) and was second in 3-point field goals (seven) during the tour as well. Those five games in Italy were played against Italian professional teams. <br clear="left"/>

Brown will be one of three high-profile transfers to play at Mizzou under Haith, joining Earnest Ross and Keion Bell, who are both already enrolled at Mizzou and eligible to play beginning next season.For all the latest on Mizzou basketball, stay tuned to MUTigers.com and follow the team on twitter @MizzouHoops.

      Arkansas is only favored by 1 point more(35) over Alcorn State than Alabama is over Kentucky...that is insane.

      Most people here probably think I love Trump but actually I just think he is the only chance we have to get someone in the office who will steer us off of this unsustainable path. Hillary has supported most attacks on the middle class. She loves NAFTA and supported the TPP. And as Trump pointed out(which I'm amazed hasn't gotten more attention) the only thing that seems good about the past 8 years is actually just an illusion. Once the fed stops unjustifiably propping up the stock market we'll be right back where we started when Obama walked into office, only with a s--t ton more debt. And Hillary wants to carry out the same types of policies. So we have someone who supports horrible policies, is incredibly corrupt, and will assuredly s--t all over the constitution with her Supreme Court nominations.    Trump may may or may not do much better, but he almost certainly couldn't do worse.

      As is the Razorback Foundation.   there are more than two, but not money. Any funds directed toward the big three sports from the university are always sent back at the end of the year, usually with an extra $2-3 million attached

      UGA has 0 talent at OL. True freshman QB. Possession WR's that cannot catch. Kickers cannot make middle-school level kicks. Half of our secondary are better at being matadors than corners

      No. Gary Johnson is a pretty successful business man in his own right. I mean, he didn't have daddy's millions to build his business from so he didn't get quite to that level that Trump did having everything given to him.
