Adam Knollmeyer, a 6-foot-8, 230 pounder committed to Missouri on Thursday. Knollmeyer is a junior at Jefferson City (Mo.) Helias High. Last season he averaged 14 points and was an all-district pick as a sophomore.
"I want to represent my state school and I really liked their player development," Knollmeyer said. "I know where I wanted to go so why wait?"
Last summer, the big man ran with the St. Louis Eagles 16 and under squad. He's an outstanding student-athlete and had been contacted by Purdue and Southwest Missouri State.
Knollmeyer isn't the only in-state prospect the Tigers are aggressively recruiting. Jarod Leonard, a small forward who participated in the Nike All-American Camp is high up on the Tigers wish list.
