The Kickapoo High Class of 2021 guard committed to play for Cuonzo Martin and the Missouri Tigers on Wednesday night, his uncle Rob Yanders told the News-Leader on Thursday morning.

The 6-foot-0 guard has proven to be one of the elite players in the Springfield area throughout his first three seasons at Kickapoo. He's received Division I interest since his freshman year.
He held offers from Missouri State, Tennessee State, UW-Milwaukee, UNLV, Illinois-Chicago and Bradley before choosing the Bears.
247Sports ranked him as the No. 167 recruit in the country. He shined on the national stage when he had a big performance at the Bass Pro Tournament of Champions in January.

"If he was playing in New York City, on any team, no one would have to talk about him," Chris the King head coach Joe Arbitello said. "He'd be exploding. He's very, very talented. He could be the best point guard we've played all year, and we've played against guys going to Gonzaga and Florida."
