Missouri basketball team lands juco center Keanau Post

Missouri added its fourth commitment to the Class of 2013 on Sunday, as PowerMizzou.com reported the Tigers have received a verbal from Southwestern Community College (Ill.) center

Keanau Post

.

A

recent story

in the Belleville News-Democrat noted that Post, a Victoria, British Columbia native who stands 6-feet-11 and weighs 260 pounds, is currently averaging 12 points and ten rebounds a game as a sophomore at Southwestern and was also considering Illinois and Georgetown, among other schools.

Post — whose lead recruiter is assistant

Dave Leitao

— has not yet been given a star rating by Rivals.com but is listed as a three-star prospect by Scout.com. In committing to Missouri,

he joins

two four-star recruits in forward

Jonathan Williams III

and guard

Wes Clark

and a three-star prospect in forward

Torren Jones

in the Class of 2013.

Post will be able to sign with Missouri in April, during the late signing period. He visited Columbia this weekend and was in attendance to see Missouri beat Bucknell 66-64 on Saturday at Mizzou Arena.

Post will likely be one of several big men called on to replace senior starters

Alex Oriakhi

and

Laurence Bowers

, who are in their final years of collegiate eligibility. Junior

Tony Criswell

and freshmen

Stefan Jankovic

and

Ryan Rosburg

— all of whom have earned valuable minutes this season — will also be in the mix, along with Williams III and Clark.
