Glen Dandridge a Tiger

The Missouri Tigers are stocking up on 2004 prospects. This time out they went to Mount Zion and picked up a future Tiger.

Glen Dandridge is off the board. The shooter from Mount Zion visited Missouri unofficially last weekend and it didn't take long for the recruiting process to end.

According to his high school coach, Tony Fozard, Dandridge is headed to Columbia.

After an average – by his standards – junior year, Dandridge really excelled last summer. Known for his long range marksmanship, Dandridge did work off the dribble and really attacked the rim in July.

"During the summer he's given them what he's given them his sophomore year," Fozard said. "I think he's getting his feel back. He played well this summer. More so, I think he was getting more confident in himself."

He made the all-star game at ABCD Camp. He exploded to the rim for dunks in Las Vegas. He added a new dimension to his game and at this stage, that's important. He'll take those tools with him to Missouri.

"I remember on different occasions him telling me that he was going to step up his game as an athlete," Fozard said. "I followed him this summer at four different places and I think his game is getting better and he's taking it stronger to the hole."

Dandridge's size at the guard slot should really help him in college. "I think he weighed in here at 25-220. With his size, that's what sells him along with him shooting the ball better." DT
