"I think he'll play big role," Singletary's AAU coach Mac Irvin said. "He's a very strong kid and he's playing very strong at the prep school right now.
"He has drive, he has heart and he's a leader. He'll play a big role at Missouri."
Irvin had a son play for the Tigers and now another son Lance is an assistant for Quin Snyder so he's got a good feel for the program.
"The Irvin Family is very influential with Chris," Matt Ramker, Florida Prep's director of basketball operations said. "They've been with him a couple of years and he's a very loyal kid. It was a foregone conclusion, it was just a matter of when, that he was going to go to Missouri."
The Tigers landed a strong guard who will be college ready to defend and stand in there and go toe-to-toe with kids. He's a well built, hard playing guard that won't back down from a challenge and plays with intensity.
Last season, Singletary averaged 24 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists at Farrugut, according to his hometown newspaper. He was part of Farragut's run to the Elite 8 in 2004.
