Shortly afterward, Post took time to speak with ShowMeMizzou.com, and he talked about making it official.
“I signed a National Letter of Intent to attend Missouri just a couple of minutes ago,” said Post. “I’m real happy! It feels good to finally be a division one athlete. It feels pretty good! It’s been a long three years. I’m happy.”
Post referred to the three years since high school, including a year at prep school, and two years in junior college in Belleville.
“It’s been a goal,” explained Post. “And, I’ve finally reached it. It feels really good. I think (being a Missouri Tiger) is going to be great! I’m going to go in there and work as hard as I can. I’ll be surrounded by other good players and good athletes. I think it’s going to be great!”
Post will graduate in May, and he will begin taking classes at Missouri in June. He talked about spending time in the weight room this summer with Todor Pandov, Missouri’s Director of Basketball Athletic Performance.
“What I’m going to do this summer is just try to drop quite a bit of body fat, and just get stronger,” explained Post. “I’m going to work on my footwork, and speed and quickness, and explosiveness. I’m going to work on everything, to be honest.”
Post intends to be on campus later this week.
In making it official, Post becomes the fourth member of Frank Haith’s 2013 recruiting class, joining previously signed PF Johnathan Williams 6'9" 190 Memphis (TN) Southwind, PG Wes Clark 6’0” 170 Romulus (MI), and PF Torren Jones 6'8" 225 LaPorte (IN) La Lumierre School.
With recent transfers and an early departure to the pros, Missouri is in the position of having scholarships available, and the Tigers are expected to add more players to their roster.
