Wainwright Makes It Happen For Mizzou

Kansas City 2013 standout basketball player Ishmail Wainwright gives new Mizzou basketball coach Frank Haith his second commitment of the weekend

ShowMeMizzou.com has learned that 2013 F Ishmail Wainwright 6'6" 215 has verbally commited to the Missouri Tigers today while on his unofficial visit.

"I made it happen,"said Wainwright in a text message to ShowMeMizzou.com. "I committed to Missouri. I love it here!"

Earlier in the day we spoke to Ishmail and he talked about how things were going on his unofficial visit and that the Tigers were still among his top choices.

"It's a great time here.It's the same but just a new staff. I really love Missouri."

Wainwright was waiting to talk to coach Haith and once he did decided that now was the time to become a Tiger.

He talked about Missouri's commitment from C/F Tyrek Coger which happened the day before.

"I think it's great for him. He made a great decision. He's my Brah."

Ishmail Wainwright becomes Frank Haith's second commit in two days and his second since arriving at Missouri, with both being for the 2013 class. He picked Missouri over Syracuse.

Ishmail also informed me that he will be playing at Findlay Prep in Nevada starting in 2011-12 season.
