Columbia, Mo. - “By the time 2 p.m. rolled around Wednesday, it was official -  Missouri men’s basketball coach Frank Haith had a three-man recruiting class ranked in the top 20 in the nation according to several scouting services.

Indeed. Missouri secured the national letters of intents of three players ranked in the top 150 players in the nation according to Rivals.com, which ranked Haith’s class No. 17 overall.

Not surprisingly, Haith had several good things to say about four-star forward Johnathan Williams III (Memphis, Tenn.), four-star guard Wesley Clark (Romulus, Mich.) and three-star forward Torren Jones (La Porte, Ind.).

Haith said Clark, ranked 71st in the nation, is a pure point guard who could fill in for starter Phil Pressey, should he elect to go pro after his junior campaign.

The Tigers aren’t done yet, either. With at least one scholarship still remaining, Haith said the Tigers are in position to take the best player available to fill out the class going forward.” http://bit.ly/TLtuwJ
