Missouri added a third member to its 2009 recruiting class when the Tigers landed a versatile big man out of Memphis.
6-foot-7, 210-pound Tyler Stone Memphis Central High School officially visited Houston, MTSU and TSU, but none of those visits compared to his weekend trip to Missouri.
"Me and the players got tight really fast," said Stone about his visit. "The coaches are cool and the facilities are nice. They have a good team and I could just see myself playing there."
Stone, who ran with the Memphis Hoopers in the summer, is a versatile face up forward in the mold of recently successful Missouri big men.
