A new Post in the post
6-foot-11 junior college transfer could be replacement to Alex Oriakhi in starting lineup next season
Head Coach Frank Haith added to his nationally ranked recruiting class on Wednesday as Southwestern Illinois College big man Keanau Post signed a national letter of intent to attend Missouri.
As a junior college transfer, Post will be eligible to play for the Tigers immediately.
The 6-foot-11, 260-pound Post was a Second Team Junior College All-American last season as a sophomore after averaging 12.3 points -- on 54 percent shooting from the field -- 8.3 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game.
Post was named the Great Rivers Athletic Conference MVP in 2013 and was a First Team All-Regional 24 selection.
“We are excited to be adding Keanau to the program,” Head Coach Frank Haith said. “Obviously, he fills a big need for us inside and gives us depth at the center position. I am really excited about his potential here at Mizzou.”
Post joins the three-person November signing class of high school seniors: Wes Clark, Torren Jones and Jonathan Williams III.
