Pressey Talks Mizzou Commitment

Tiger commit Matt Pressey discusses his visit and commitment to Missouri

Recently committed 2010 SG Matt Pressey 6'2" 180 Corsicana (TX) Navarro CC took time to speak with ShowMeMizzou on his way home from his weekend visit to Missouri.

I asked Matt Pressey what had persuaded him to go ahead and commit to Missouri. "I was already kind of leaning that way," he replied. "But, once I came here and took the visit, checked everything out, and talked to the coaches, and got to talk to the players, after that I just felt that it was the right fit for me."

Matt Pressey talked about how he sees his role on the Tigers. "For what they're losing this year," said Matt, "I was talking to Coach Anderson, I feel I can bring some of the intangible things. You know, some of the things that Tiller did, and Taylor, I bring kind of a combination of that. As well, I can score the ball. I can shoot it. I can defend. I can make plays. I think I bring kind of a mixed package of all that, filling the holes left behind."

Pressey talked about the style of play at Missouri. "I like it a lot! It gives me a chance to really use my skills. I'm able to shoot it, get into the lane, penetrate, push the ball, as well as get up and down and defend. So, it fits me real well."

Matt Pressey is planning to sign his Letter of Intent on Thursday, April 15th.
