Missouri lands prime target Mitchell Smith

Missouri landed one of their top targets in center Mitchell Smith

The Missouri Tigers got on the board in the class of 2016 with a commitment from center Mitchell Smith. Smith, who plays power forward and center, ran with the Arkansas Wings in the Nike EYBL. Smith is around 6-foot-9 and 200 pounds, and is someone who can really run the floor to go along with being someone who rebounds and blocks shots.

In the EYBL Smith was mostly a role player for the Wings, but showed upside and potential, and with help in the weight room, he could be a player in time for the Tigers.

Smith announced his commitment by saying, "Thank you to all the schools who recruited me, but I have now officially committed to Missouri"

This is the first commitment for Missouri in the class of 2016.
