Tramaine Isabell, who led his high school team to a state championship as a senior, made his college choice on Thursday. Isabell is headed to Missouri.

Missouri added another piece to their 2014 recruiting class on Thursday.

Tramaine Isabell, a three-star guard out of Seattle (Wash.) Garfield, committed to Kim Anderson and his staff. Isabell confirmed the news with

"Me and my mom thought it was the right decision," Isabell said of his commitment. "We enjoyed our visit a lot. I got a good relationship with the coaches and the players."

Isabell, who also strongly considered Providence and Colorado State, said the Missouri staff targeted him and he thinks he has an opportunity to play early.

"Just the coaches and saying how much they want me on the floor," Isabell said when pressed on what led to picking Missouri. "I'm just excited about the opportunity and I can't wait to get on the floor."

Missouri assistant coach Tim Fuller was the point man on the Isabell recruitment.

"It's really good," Isabell said about his relationship with Fuller. "I have a lot of love for coach Fuller. He's a great guy and I can't wait to get in the gym with him."

Isabell, who was at one time committed to Washington State, is coming off a terrific senior season, where he led Garfield to a 4A state title and was named First Team All-State. He averaged 24 points, five assists and four steals a game.

"I can bring my leadership and my basketball IQ," Isabell said about his game. "I space the floor with my three-point shot and that leaves lanes for my guys to get in. I also distribute the ball well. If coach need to me drive the lane and kick and I can pretty much do whatever coach asks me too and contain the opposing teams guards."

Isabell gives Missouri four recruits in the 2014 class. He joins top 100 prospects Jakeenan Gant and Namon Wright, as well as three-star Dallas native D'Angelo Allen.

Missouri has one of the top classes in the SEC, as it ranks No. 4 in the league.
