Missouri coach Frank Haith added another player to his incoming recruiting class on Saturday, as three-star point guard Shane Rector gave a verbal commitment to the Tigers during his visit to Columbia.
The commitment, which was first reported by PowerMizzou.com, gives Haith a five-man recruiting class that recently checked in as the 16th-best in the country, according to the site. He is the second point guard in Missouri’s incoming class, joining four-star guard Wes Clark from Romulus, Mich., and both will be charged with sharing the ballhandling duties after Phil Pressey recently decided to go pro.
Rector, who is listed at 6 feet and 170 pounds, attends South Kent High School and was committed to Rutgers until coach Mike Rice was fired in early April. Rector then reopened his recruitment and also had offers from Butler, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Providence, Seton Hall, Texas A&M and Virginia Tech, among others.
Haith still has two scholarships available to hand out, should he choose to do so.
