Green-er Pastures In Big 12

Mike Anderson's Missouri Tigers visited, offered and accepted a commitment from 3-star power forward Kadeem Green.

Kadeem Green, a native of Missouri who is prepping at Charlotte (N.C.) United Faith, is off the board. The 6-foot-8 power forward picked the Tigers after considering New Mexico. He visited last weekend.

"His family, his mother and himself were thinking about holding out and seeing what was out there," United Faith's Shaun Wiseman said. "But, mom felt comfortable with Missouri. When Coach Anderson offered and Kadeem felt comfortable and went ahead committed."

Last season for the N.C. 1-A private school state champs, Green averaged 11 points and eight rebounds a contest. His team beat Word of God on an Ian Miller last second 3-pointer.

"I've watched them play and I'm familiar with how they play. His length, his athleticism and ability to put it on the floor and get to the rim and defend a few positions fits their style."
