Michael Porter, a 6-8 junior from Tolton Catholic in Columbia, Missouri, scored 35 points and grabbed 22 rebounds in Saturday’s 58-53 victory over Blue Valley Northwest at the Best of the Midwest Showcase at Johnson County Community College. Earlier in the day, the No. 3-rated player in the Class of 2017 attended the KU-TCU game.

“Greatest venue in college basketball. I saw that today,” Porter told reporters after the game at JCCC.

He plans to attend the KU-Kentucky game on Jan. 30 with Trae Young, a 6-1 junior from Norman (Oklahoma) North who is ranked No. 26 in the Class of 2017.

Wouldn't it be great to steal a recruit out from under the very shadows of the University of Missouri itself?

Oh, and speaking of Missouri, gotta love what Stephan Pastis did today in "Pearls Before Swine":

There is little chance that he selects MU - it looks like KU, Washington, Kentucky, and Duke.

Can't imagine him going to Missouri. They are on a self imposed post season ban this year and the NCAA might put them on a real one next year.

Would also be great to steal a recruit from Lon Kruger as well (#26). A new meaning to "double steal."
